Innovative scanners to prevent nuclear accidents

 Two EU projects develop complementary crack-detection scanners for nuclear power plants


Two research projects backed with a total amount of €2.2 million in EU funds, HedRAD and NozzleInspect, have developed two complementary crack-detection scanners for nuclear power plants' critical infrastructures to prevent nuclear accidents.

The proposed digital monitoring solutions could increase 'defect detection capacities' by 30% and allow safety infrastructure assessments that are six times faster than existing commercial solutions, say project representatives.
