M&D technologies for vibrations; Flat UT probes; NDT services; Phased-Array NDT; Root Cause Analyses; Fitness-for-Service Assessments; complex FE calculations. Also supporting extended operation.
Framatome stands for CO2-free energy production and has been supporting wind energy for years with expert knowledge, accredited capable laboratories, NDT procedures, diagnostic systems and quality assurance. Competence from 60 years in power plants is the basis for innovative solutions.
Quality and Root Cause Analyses of functionally relevant components are essential for reliable operation. A wide range of technical assessments are also necessary to evaluate a possible extended operation. Framatome develops interdisciplinary solution approaches and remedial measures. In doing so, we draw on various engineering and technical fields and accompany the implementation.
