British Energy Training Incorporates AUMA Actuation

AUMA trains staff at Dungeness B in actuation technology

A systematic approach to training at British Energy, part of EDF Energy, incorporates actuation education. Over 400 AUMA actuators are installed on the utility’s sites including Hinkley B, Dungeness B and Hunterston B. The manufacturer of modular actuation solutions is supporting its actuation technology with tailored training programmes for British Energy.

AUMA actuators at British Energy’s sites play an important role facilitating process control automation. As a result, the actuation technology is ‘process critical’ and training is focused on development of practical skills.

Designed specifically for British Energy’s Electrical Maintain Technicians, the on-site training tool is interactive and supported by working product examples. Commenting, Rodger Smith, a British Energy Electrical Technical Training Instructor based at Dungeness B, said:

“Our technicians are practical people and AUMA’s training, which is adapted to meet our needs, is engaging and informative. As a result, in contrast to traditional classroom learning, it is effective at ensuring staff retain information and enhance their skill levels.”

AUMA, which has supplied modular actuation solutions to the power industry for over forty years, has specialist expertise supporting nuclear plants and their obsolescence initiatives. Included in AUMA’s product range is a series of actuators specifically designed for use in nuclear power plants. Installations include the world’s first Generation 3 reactor, Olkiluoto 3 in Finland.

A suite of eight training courses are delivered at AUMA UK near Bristol, or at a customer’s site. An assessment is available and certificates are issued on satisfactory completion of the courses.
