Maliaño, February the 21fst of 2019.- The Automatic department of the Advanced Technology Centre (CTA) of Equipos Nucleares S.A., S.M.E (Ensa) has made a new test of vibrations in Ascó nuclear power plant in Tarragona to verify the correct state of the reactor coolant pumps.

As a part of the framework contract that the state company with head office/headquarters in Maliaño has signed with Westinghouse for the nuclear power plants of the National Association Ascó- Vandellós group (ANAV) it has been made the vibration measurements of the reactor coolant pumps during the beginning of plant cycle.

With these measures it was verified the correct state of the pumps after the servicing realized during the refuelling outage and also the needed calculations were made in anticipation of a scenery where balancing is necessary. The works were developed during the pressure and temperature rise of the plant until reaching nominal values.
