Aging Management Strategy for Safety Aspects of Long Term Operation (SALTO) in Koeberg Nuclear Power Station

Eskom intends operating Koeberg Nuclear Power Station (KNPS) beyond its assumed design life of forty years. This has become standard nuclear industry practice, by applying good asset management and performing a specific, plant ageing-related safety assessment, nuclear plant lifetimes could go beyond 60 years, without decrease of safety and availability of the unit and at the same time with reduction of maintenance and operating costs. For implementation of Aging Management Strategy for Safety Aspects of Long Term Operation (SALTO), Eskom decided to partner with Framatome, FRAMATOME, who owns required expertise for the assessment process and the engineering of responding, and has developed solutions based on state of science and technology.
