OVERVIEW
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.
Servelec Controls is one of UK’s leading systems integrators, with 4 offices, 150 staff and an international presence in more than a dozen countries.
Each EPGMS system consists of a pair of Adroit Smart SCADA servers engineered in a dual-redundant, hot-standby configuration, with up to 6 client workstations connecting to the servers.

All EPGMS systems are connected to and monitored by a Central Emergency Support Centre (CESC), located in the geographic center of the UK.

OPERATIONAL IMPACT
Remote Device Diagnostics - Real-time status reports enable maintenance personnel to remotely diagnose the status of equipment in a power plant.
Remote Control - Real-time visibility, monitoring, and control of equipment improves asset and resource efficiency, and enables the safe control of equipment in the case of a radiation leak.
Data Aggregation - Long-term data storage allows analysis and trend monitoring.
QUANTITATIVE BENEFIT
EPGMS enables identification of a radiation leak within 30 seconds.
IOT SNAPSHOT
The IoT ONE Radar indicates the mix of hardware, software and services used in an IoT solution.
Hardware
IoT power supplies include traditional, thin-film and printed batteries, energy harvesting modules, flexible photovoltaic panels and thermoelectric sources.
Technologies that enable legacy devices and other systems to connect to the IoT. They integrate technologies and protocols for networking.
Products used by end users that contain IoT technologies. Examples include enabled equipment, wearables, hand-held scanners, and tracking devices.
Software
Horizontal applications are standardized (e.g., asset tracking). Vertical applications are tailored to specific needs (e.g., delivery fleet management).
IoT analytics includes real-time or edge computing and batch analysis. Analytics can be behavioral, descriptive, predictive, or prescriptive.
Data management solutions capture, index and store data in traditional database, cloud platforms, and fog systems for future use.
Services
System integrators link IoT component subsystems, customize solutions, and ensure that IoT systems communicate with existing operational systems.
IoT data management consultancies help to make sense of big data, decide which data to maintain and for how long, and troubleshoot IT issues.
