Purpose and goal

The aim of having developed 3 training modules has been accomplished of which 2 has been successfully included in a real training for plant personnel and was performed live. Two chosen methodologies have been selected for calculation of radiation to evaluate further. The parties in the project have found a collaborative platform that works well.

Expected effects and result

Two training modules have been developed and included in a real training for plant personnel. The grade was shown to be 5.5 out of possible 6 in a questionnaire survey after the training. A simplified radiation module was developed i VR and was demonstrated at a seminar for invited guests from the power plants end of January. It was well received. the collaboration between the parties in the project was very useful and unique competencies were shared in the best interest to the project. Already, future business opportunities are being discussed between WSE and KSU.

Planned approach and implementation

The project started with a kick off meeting at Westinghouse in Västerås. After that, a number of parallel activities were started with a goal to finish two modules to include in a real course for plant personnel that was hosted in the Westinghouse facility late January. During that training a digitalization summit were held simultaneously with presence from senior management at Vattenfall and OKG. Two training modules were successfully used by KSU and a radiation demo was performed during the summit. A methodology for radiation simulation was developed jointly by WSE and SICS.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
