AEG to build Institute Laue-Langevin's power-supply system

The Institute Laue-Langevin (ILL), the world’s largest neutron research facility, has selected AEG Power Solutions to build its power-supply system, AEEG said last week.

The order will include two of AEG's Profitec chargers, rated at 300A, and two of the company’s 20kVA Transokraft inverters

AEG, a global provider of electronic power systems and solutions for industrial power supplies and renewable energy applications, said it was chosen because its products are held in high regard due to their quality, reliability, and nuclear proficiency. The products used in this project must be resistant to seismic events and high temperatures, and must carry multiple certifications, per industry standards and the project's demands.

AEG products met all necessary approvals from the French Nuclear Safety Authority.

In the aftermath of the 2011 Fukushima nuclear accident, ILL chose AEG to assist in the implementation of proactive facility safety improvements, including new construction and electrical supply backup, at its international research site in Grenoble, France.

“For nuclear projects such as ILL, the key factors are reliability, safety and durability,” Florent Raison, AEG's sales and service director in France, said. “AEG Power Solutions has a proven track record of meeting all these requirements across many nuclear projects all around the world.”
