At ANAV, we have accepted the challenge to improve every day in order to keep up with our commitments to society at all times. Training and the recruitment of new talent reinforces personnel experience, while new technologies enable us to update our facilities, making them more robust and efficient.
Additionally to design modifications and constant critical review of work procedures, we also prepare and train ANAV’s personnel in accordance with the highest standards.
International experience demonstrates that appropriately managing the equipment and systems year after year provides sufficient warranties for the power plants to operate safely for the long-term.
In fact, there has been a constant renewal of components and improvement of procedures at the Ascó and Vandellós II nuclear power plants since they both began operating in the eighties. These actions, stemming from the exchange of experience and information with other plant operators, have required millions in investments and keep the plants in optimum conditions for operation.
Thus, over the years very significant elements that were part of the original design have been renewed, such as the reactor vessel heads, the steam generators, the plant computer systems and the transformers, and new systems have been installed to increase the safety and reliability of the facilities.
