Update of the Advanced Vibration and Loose Parts Monitoring System (AVLPMS) of Units 1 and 2 of Almaraz N.P.P.
Most of the currents and operating Nuclear Power Plants were built in the 70 and 80´s decades. By Specification Requirements, and focused on the detestation of potential “loose parts” in the Primary Circuit, all of them have installed a VLPMS- Vibration Loose Parts Monitoring System-.
