Case Study: Developing a Custom Remote Sensing Solution for Nuclear Power Plants
Nuclear power plants present many unique challenges for networked monitoring of equipment, as well as enormous potential advantages in terms of safety and cost savings.
Benchmark joined with industry software leader KnowledgeRelay to create a custom Multi-Sensing Monitoring Unit (MSMU) for Idaho National Laboratory. The resulting MSMU uses sensors and advanced machine learning to monitor equipment in nuclear power plants across the U.S. by sensing vibrations. The technology effectively reduced the need for manual surveillance, which lowers costs and improves the plant’s safety.
This case study examines the challenges, solutions, and results of the project.
