MESSAGE (ENGLISH VERSION)






Westinghouse to Upgrade Temelín's Control and Monitoring Systems


In terms of technical complexity, it will be one of the most demanding
projects in the history of the


Czech Republic, worth billions of crowns. The important project must not
disrupt the operation of


the key Czech emission-free power plant. Selected control and management
systems will be


partially renewed and upgraded by Westinghouse as their original
supplier. Westinghouse has the


greatest knowledge of its system, apart from CEZ itself, which
strengthens the safe course of the


upgrade.


In 1993, the Government decided to complete two of the four Temelín
generating units that were under


construction and to replace the original system with Westinghouse's then
state-of-the-art digital control


and management system. This was one of the world's first links between
an Eastern and American


project. Since the first unit was commissioned, it has operated here
with only routine modifications and


updates. A part of the system will now undergo its first major upgrade.


“Although this is an upgrade of systems, negotiations with the existing
supplier took more than a


year. Our first priority is of course to ensure safety, but we also
insist that the work should not


affect the operation of Temelín itself. All this had to be carefully
prepared and formulated in the


contract,” says Daniel Beneš, Chairman of the Board of Directors and
Chief Executive Officer of ČEZ.


In practice, experts will replace some systems and some of the fixed
equipment, including the buses and


control elements involved. Most of these are not only physically
separated from each other, but also from


all external networks.


“In fact, it is a complex of several independently backed-up systems
that have been operating


reliably at Temelín since 2000. This upgrade is not a solution to a
sudden need, but a carefully


prepared step in the gradual renewal of the equipment with a view to the
planned sixty-year and


possibly even longer operation. This is why the entire project is spread
out until 2029,” explains


Bohdan Zronek, Member of the Board of Directors and Director of the
Nuclear Power Division.


The contract for the control and management system upgrade was signed by
representatives of ČEZ and


Westinghouse on Monday, September 13.


“This agreement requires full cooperation at all levels during the
complete renewal of the affected


parts of the control system,” says Tarik Choho, President of
Westinghouse Europe, Middle East and


Africa. “We are proud to be working with ČEZ on this significant upgrade
of information and


control systems that will not disrupt the operation of this key Czech
emission-free power source,"


he adds.


ČEZ has been preparing the control and management system upgrade project
for three years, when


specialists specified the needs and, above all, the schedule of work.
The physical work itself will start


together with Westinghouse this year, but some of the activities will
only be possible during the planned


major outages for fuel replacement. The next one is due at Temelín in
April next year.
