UK-based Rolls-Royce and US-based Analysis and Measurement Services Corporation (AMS) have signed a partnership agreement to provide advanced Instrumentation and Control system testing services to the global nuclear energy market.
As part of the Pulse offer developed by Rolls-Royce, a comprehensive range of services will be provided by the two companies dedicated to monitoring the performance and health of safety I&C components including neutron detectors, pressure transmitters, temperature probes, cables and connections.
"The establishment of this partnership with AMS will allow us to bring complementary predictive maintenance solutions to our customers, and thus improve the performance and reliability of their nuclear facilities,” said Eric Blanc, president Rolls-Royce Civil Nuclear France. AMS President Dr HM Hashemian said the AMS partnership with Rolls-Royce “will add a significant new dimension to AMS’s worldwide footprint”.
