Smart SCADA-based Emergency Plume Gamma Monitoring System

During 2010, a total of ten nuclear power stations were chosen to have their legacy Emergency Plume Gamma Monitoring Systems (EPGMS) replaced. Servelec Controls has over twenty years’ experience in the provision of EPGMS to the nuclear power generation industry.

The primary function of EPGMS systems is to provide essential information to an emergency team on site to assist in the assessment of the local population's radiation dose in the unlikely event of an accidental release of radioactivity.
