Monitoring and control of nuclear power plants

A must-have for the safe and reliable operation of nuclear power plants: modern electricity and control technology. Therefore, numerous operators in Germany and abroad have retrofitted their plants with AREVA NP's TELEPERM XS safety instrumentation & control (I&C) system.

Here, AREVA NP sets standards. We design and deliver electrical and I&C systems. For the installation into new reactors or for the modernization of existing nuclear power plants. We also address interface management: It is of key importance to process engineering and modernization projects. And we offer plant operators support for licencing and certification activities.


TELEPERM XS is the leading digital I&C platform for nuclear facilities. It was designed by AREVA NP to fulfill relevant safety requirements while ensuring top availability. To date, the TELEPERM XS platform has been installed in or ordered for more thran 80 nuclear power plants of 16 different reactor designs in 16 countries. 

We also offer technically and economically optimized solutions for non-safety-related tasks. Here, we work in close cooperation with preferred suppliers.


AREVA NP offers complete electrical engineering services for nuclear power plants: qualified nuclear solutions from common standard products up to its own specialty products. In the portfolio: uninterruptible power supply, switchboards, drives and transformers. AREVA NP also projects special solutions up to integrated electrical architectures. The range of services is completed with concepts and components for lightning protection, alarm systems, equipment for monitoring and access control, amongst others.

Emergency Diesel Generators

A main factor for the safe operation of nuclear power plants is the emergency power supply. Here, AREVA NP is world market leader with decades of experience. To this day, we have supplied more than 300 emergency diesel generators. We offer the full service range, from concept studies to modernization and complete systems. We have developed specialty products for the main electrical and control systems components of emergency diesel generators, which meet the highest safety requirements.


Electrical and I&C components in nuclear power plants age. Especially in areas close to the reactor. How fast depends on the thermal, mechanical and radiological strains. It is the target of the lifetime management to determine the residual life of these components. Therefore, AREVA NP has designed a quantitative aging management which calculates the residual service life using component measurements, qualification parameters and suitable algorithms.

Services for electrical and I&C systems

Safe plant operation with high availability requires that all electrical and I&C systems work reliably during normal operation as well as in cases of incidents. Therefore, AREVA NP keep sall electrical and I&C systems in nuclear power plants in shape. Throughout their entire lifetime!

  • Recurrent tests and maintenance during plant outages
  • Comprehensive solutions for long-term maintenance of systems or subsystems
  • Lifetime management of components including maintenance and repair
