RPC Radiy is a leading designer and supplier of advanced instrumentation and control (I&C) systems for nuclear power plants based in the Ukraine. The company offers a full development cycle including design, manufacturing, testing, and equipment installation. For more than 20 years, RPC Radiy has provided advanced I&C solutions for nuclear power plant modernization and new-build projects in Europe.
RPC Radiy's main I&C product, the RadICS I&C Platform, was developed specifically for use in nuclear power plants. The RadICS Platform consists of a Logic Module, basic input/output modules, and specialty modules all housed in a seismically qualified chassis. The RadICS Platform components are designed to the latest IEC standards for safety-related service and the highest classified nuclear systems. The RadICS Platform is robust, flexible, and scalable. It provides state-of-the-art functions, services, self-diagnostics, and safeguards for both safety and non-safety applications.
The RadICS Digital I&C Platform was certified by exida as an IEC 61508 SIL 3 capable digital I&C platform. It is the only FPGA-based I&C platform with a SIL 3 certification in a single channel configuration. This certification attests to the high reliability of the RadICS Platform as well as the rigorous development process used for the hardware and software design.
RPC Radiy, the designer and manufacturer of the RadICS Platform equipment, has a broad range of technical capabilities and a high degree of vertical integration: design, procurement, manufacturing, testing, and installation. The RPC Radiy Quality Management System (QMS) governs the design and manufacture of the RadICS Platform equipment and is based on ISO 9001:2015.
Radics is a wholly owned LLC established in July 2012. The company's business focus is the design and delivery of I&C systems for NPPs using RadICS Platform equipment. The RadICS Quality Assurance Plan (QAP) governs the system design, integration, and delivery of I&C systems to the international market.
RPC Radiy's QMS is being constantly improved and developed. In recent years, Radiy has introduced additional improvements in order to be in compliance with the quality management system standards of various international and national organizations, such as ISO, CSA, US NRC, IEC, and ASME.
In 2015, Radics LLC began working with Global Quality Assurance, Inc. (GQA) in order to fully align the Radics LLC QMS, implementing procedures, and training with 10 CFR Part 50, Appendix B, and ASME NQA-1- 2008/NQA-1a-2009. This was done in preparation for the submittal of the RadICS Platform Topical Report to the US NRC. The GQA third party certification audit was completed in the third quarter of 2016. The Radics LLC staff has been trained on the following topics:
