Ensa completed the installation of the Aeroball Measurement System Shielding (AMS)

Ensa completed the installation of the AMS that “is a great achievement to allow its implementation.”

The AMS allows a safe control of the fuel elements during the operation and Ensa has been responsible for making the shield to contain and prevent any neutron radiation or gamma rays coming from the reactor pressure vessel, so that, if it were necessary, personnel could access the AMS room during the operation of the plant.

The shielding of the AMS consists of a protected stainless steel structure which, due to its final position and very tight tolerances, involved special attention during manufacture, factory acceptance tests and installation phases.
