Wireless technology has traditionally not been used in nuclear applications, mainly due to restrictions in safety and security. The development of wireless applications has however been very strong during the last years, and the technology is widely used in other industries. Lately, wireless has also been used to some extent in the nuclear power plants (NPPs), in non-safety applications, and mainly in temporary installations e.g. during outages. Because of this, Energiforsk’s R&D program ENSRIC steering group launched a feasibility study to map how wireless technology is used in Nordic and international NPPs and in other safety critical industries. As part of the mapping project a seminar to learn more about the opportunities and challenges with using wireless in nuclear applications was decided to be organized. The “wireless in nuclear applications”-seminar , was held on the 8th of March 2018 in Solna, Stockholm in the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (SSM) conference premises. In the seminar, the results of the Energiforsk’s study “Wireless in nuclear - feasibility study” , mapped by the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd., together with the invited speakers from power plants, vendors, consultants and research community were presented. This report summarises all the presentations held at the seminar.
