The planned service life of the first production unit of the Dukovany Nuclear Power Plant is to expire at the end of 2015.
The ZAT control systems have greatly contributed to extending its service life by at least ten extra years. "After five planned service interruptions of the third unit we were charged with the most difficult part of the renovation. We were to replace the control systems while maintaining the production capacity of the power plant, which was a challenge for us. According to available information, a similar project, when the production capacity of the power plant was maintained during renovation, has not been implemented anywhere in the world before", says Karel Stočes of ZAT.
