Nuclear power plants in Belgium to use Ventyx web-based software

Ventyx, a unit of ABB, said that Belgian energy company Electrabel has licensed Ventyx asset health management software to facilitate enhanced equipment reliability at the company's nuclear power plants in Belgium.

Electrabel, a unit of GDF Suez, is implementing the Ventyx SystemIQ software in its three units at the 3,024 MW Tihange plant. The software has also been licensed for potential future implementation at four units at Electrabel's 2,911 MW Doel site.

Ventyx said the Web-based SystemIQ software will facilitate system performance monitoring and health reporting at the sites. Designed to automate data collection, the software integrates with supporting applications such as work management, corrective action, condition monitoring and diagnostics, inventory management.

Electrabel is implementing the software to help improve the Tihange plant's load factor, equipment reliability and compliance with regulations such as the Institute of Nuclear Power Operations (INPO) AP-913 rule.
