  • CASE STUDY: NEOLANT, RUSSIA

    INTERGRAPH INFORMATION SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY SUPPORTS NUCLEAR PLANTS DECOMMISSIONING NEOLANT keeps data integrity through the whole life-cycle management of decommissioning project

    IDENTIFYING GOALSNEOLANT was the selected engineering company for the decommissioning of

    power generation units at Smolenskaya, Bilibino, and Kolskaya Nuclear Power

    Plants (NPP). The contractor needed to create an effective information support

    system to support the whole capital life-cycle management of the project, main-

    taining data integrity and accuracy of engineering information. The information

    system was built based on SmartPlant Enterprise and named Decommissioning

    database.

    The nucleus of the database is based on the NPP information model, a stan-

    dard NPP model which contains current design and engineering data needed

    in the decommissioning process. The information model itself is an Engineering

    Data Management system. As the project goes, different IT tools join the sys-

    tem: applications to gather data, applications for engineering evaluation and

    simulation modeling, and applications for business analysis are all involved in

    decommissioning.

    NEOLANT chose Intergraph technologies for creating the decommissioning

    database at Bilibino, Kolskaya, and Smolenskaya NPPs because:

    Design engineers at Smolenskaya, Kolskaya, and Bilibino NPPs had prior expe-

    rience in the use of Intergraph technologies.

    Solutions are easy to use by staff involved in the decommissioning project.

    All actions performed within the project are recorded for reporting and reuse.

    Technical support is offered by Intergraph.

    NEOLANT has broad experience in the use of Intergraph solutions.

    NEOLANT brought in its own technologies, InterBridge and InterView, which

    helped to implement the project. InterBridge allows users to link several CAD

    formats into one information model. InterView is a visual interface designed to

    help the team effectively use the decommissioning database. It is fast, easy, and

    resource saving. Both tools have an interface with SmartPlant Enterprise.

  • NPPs were created using SmartPlant Electrical, SmartPlant

    Foundation, SmartPlant P&ID, and Smart3D. SmartPlant P&ID

    was used for two-dimensional technology schemes develop-

    ment, which later were used for putting together 3D models

    in Smart3D. Electrical schemes were created with SmartPlant

    Electrical. A SmartPlant Foundation interface with InterBridge

    and InterView was applied to create an integrated engineering

    data storage a single access point, which also had a benefi-

    cial impact in project document management.

    OVERCOMING CHALLENGESRecovering thousands of drawings and as-built documenta-

    tion from the plants posed a challenge to engineers and other

    specialists from NEOLANT and Intergraph. The lack of an ap-

    plication among SmartPlant Enterprise solutions for creating a

    general plot plan (a diagram which shows the buildings, utility

    runs, engineering, equipment layout, and other constructions of

    a project site) was challenging, because other 2D and 3D CAD

    tools had to be brought in and an interface with SmartPlant

    Foundation was created.

    The isolated location of some objects and some NPPs staff

    members preoccupation with other duties also posed some

    challenges that were overcome with a holistic change in man-

    agement and a multi-discipline collaboration approach.

    REALIZING RESULTSIt took six months to create and launch the Intergraph de-

    commissioning database system. Each NPPs database is

    customized in terms of data model extension. For instance, at

    Kolskaya NPP, 20,931 project-related sketches were scanned

    and uploaded to the system. The decommissioning database

    was built upon a single information model which includes

    14,532 objects.

    Today, the decommissioning databases at the three NPPs

    work effectively and play a key role in:

    Gathering and keeping data linked to all information systems

    at NPPs.

    Exchanging data among all information systems at NPPs.

    Providing all necessary data for mandatory decommissioning

    reports, including reports on the units technical condition.

    Providing radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel data

    integration.

    Visualizing the structure and patterns of all NPP objects (as

    well as nuclear unit parts).

    MOVING FORWARDThe decommissioning database projects built with SmartPlant

    Enterprise tools, information modelling and cPLM methodology

    worked well with the Neolant InterBridge technology prepara-

    tory work. In the near future the decommissioning database

    will also be integrated with current NPPs operations, techni-

    cal equipment characteristics and welded connection control

    information systems.
