AUMA Donates to Nuclear Power Academy

The training Academy for EDF Energy – Existing Nuclear

AUMA has donated actuators and supporting equipment to the Nuclear Power Academy
AUMA, the manufacturer of modular electric actuators, has donated actuation technology to support a training Academy for EDF Energy’s existing nuclear power plants (EDF Energy - Existing Nuclear).

The Academy, which marked its third year of operation in January this year, is a learning centre with facilities and equipment designed to deliver a wide range of courses for EDF Energy – Existing Nuclear’s fleet of power stations. The centre supports the utility’s operational safety / excellence initiatives and reinforces the key principles of nuclear professionalism.

AUMA UK has donated actuators and supporting equipment to the Academy’s Electrical Skills Team. Additionally, one of the company’s modular products is on loan to an apprentice training provider to facilitate the training of all station staff in actuator maintenance.

Based on employee suggestions, the name Nuclear Power Academy was chosen to reflect EDF Energy’s vision to be ‘first in UK power’. The opening of the facility is reported by EDF Energy as a key milestone in the utility’s training improvement strategy
