Company ZAT belongs to the leading world suppliers in the field of nuclear power industry. You can find our technologies and know-how in ten percent of nuclear power plants in the world and in one third of them in European Union. „We install our control systems in reactors type VVER 1000 and 440. This year we are focusing on increasing of products using verified safety system line Z100 for control of technology type VVER 1200. This way we would like to increase portfolio of our products and thus to participate in construction of new nuclear power plants with this technology, “ specifies Karel Stočes, Director of Nuclear Power Engineering Division.
On the opposite power pole there are small modular reactors. Our company focuses on this field too. ZAT has supplied control and safety system for a small research reactor LVR-15 to Research Centre Řež and this way it is participating in development of nuclear reactor of the fourth generation. Realization of the prototype system for control of small reactor Labgene in Brazil is a new development contract, which we participate in together with company ŠKODA JS. „In both cases we continue in our key products represented by regulation and safety system of control of the reactor control rod drives and regulation system of reactor power, “ says Stočes. In his opinion ZAT reacts this way to trend in development of nuclear technology in the world where the company wants to reach a part of the market.
