L3 logoL-3 Communications MAPPS has refurbished Eskom“™s nuclear power plant in South Africa and kicked off a second simulator at the site in an effort to help Eskom fulfill validation requirements, Energy Business Review reported Friday.

Canadian-based L-3 Marine & Power Systems division completed the two-phase plant model upgrade for Koeberg power station“™s operator training simulator and started operating on the facility“™s other simulator Aug. 1, according to the report.

L-3 MAPPS worked to connect the new Orchid simulation platform and used the second simulator“™s hardware to update the models, the report says.

Under the refurbishment“™s first phase, L-3 MAPPS reconstructed the plant“™s loop balance, replicated a fresh steam turbine controller and the monitoring system display and delivered Westinghouse Ovation DCS“™ interface, Energy Business Review reports.

The second phase involved upgrades to emergency core cooling, electrical systems and shared services in L-3’s Orchid modeling environment, as well as the transfer of legacy control logic to the Orchid platform, according to the publication.

L-3 MAPPS also worked to clone the plant’s control room and emergency control facility under the second project, reports Energy Business Review.
