Westinghouse set to provide safety systems for Krško plant

Westinghouse Electric Company has received two contracts from Nuklearna Elektrarna Krško (NEK) to provide a passive containment dry-filter method (DFM) venting system and a passive autocatalytic recombiner hydrogen-control system for the Krško Nuclear Power Plant in Slovenia.

Designed to provide additional measures for ensuring containment integrity, the two systems are part of the range of products and services Westinghouse offers to improve plant safety and to help mitigate events such as the Fukushima Daiichi disaster.

The engineering, design, supply and installation of the two passive safety systems, including aerosol and iodine filter units, is scheduled to be complete by April 2015.
