Nuclear Power Plant in Turkey chooses B&K Vibro

By Published on May 20, 2022


Before the decision is made to build a nuclear power plant, a few things are very clear. First, safety is the top priority. Second, to avoid catastrophic failures, a nuclear power plant needs solutions with unique integration features to monitor and protect the equipment. Third, this system must be reputable and proven in nuclear technology.

For about 50 years, Turkey has been working on a project that it had only considered until recently. Turkey began construction of its first nuclear power plant in April 2018 at Akkuyu, in Büyükeceli, Mersin Province. The plant will supply Turkey with about 10% of its electricity. Turkey is on track to complete the power plant in 2025.

Safety is a top priority for nuclear power plants. A machine condition monitoring and protection solution is being implemented at the plant. This solution plays a crucial role in the safety of the plant.

To protect machinery assets, the Akkuyu plant chose Brüel & Kjær Vibro systems to perform this task. The VC-8000/SETPOINT® CMS system provides machine protection and condition monitoring for the plant’s critical machines. VCM-3 Field Monitor will provide monitoring for the less critical machines.

B&K Vibro recently upgraded SETPOINT® CMS so that it can now interface with VCM-3. With the VCM-3 and VC-8000 systems seamlessly connected to SETPOINT®CMS, you now have a single common data repository for plant-wide machinery asset health awareness.

With years of nuclear experience worldwide and the ability to provide comprehensive and user-friendly solutions for both critical and non-critical machinery assets, B&K Vibro was trusted by the Akkuyu plant to ensure the safety of its nuclear power plant.
