Since 2007, IOWater has designed and developed equipment and several testing units for the various laboratories of Electricity of France - EDF - Research and Development Division (EDF R&D).
The ”EDF CEIDRE” engineering unit (Center of Expertise and Inspection on Production and Operation) decided to entrust IOWater with the restoration of units for its future Chinon Laboratory.
This test unit consists of several test loops representative of the cooling circuit of Nuclear Power Plants (NPP) and associated equipment. The peculiarity of this unit is, in a sustainable development rationale, to be partly made up of existing units.
The units, developed, built and tested in 2013 at IOWater center of La Souterraine, will be installed next spring on the Chinon site.
