Jay Sarkar, Founder President and CEO is pleased to announce the signing of the several new contracts in excess of 5.0 M. These major contracts are from OPG, Bruce Power, KHNP (Korea), TQNPC (China) and others. The total confirmed backlog as of December 21st 2018 was in excess of $10 million, despite our accelerated shipments in the fiscal year 2018.

During the year, the Sartrex team successfully completed the delivery of the mission critical Startup Instrumentation System (SUIS) to Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power Co. Ltd. (KHNP). The SUIS helps the KHNP operating staff in the continuous monitoring of neutron flux, during the change of the state of the reactor (‘Approach to Critical’ or ‘Startup’). The SUIS was re-designed, and developed using the latest technology to work in demanding conditions and was manufactured conforming to the quality standards of ASME NQA1, CSA Z299.1, and ISO 9001:2015.

In addition to the above, Sartrex also successfully completed the qualification of its SDS1 and RRS systems for OPG Darlington’s Refurbishment Project. Sartrex also successfully completed the qualification of Bruce Power Unit B safety shutdown refurbishment project. All of these successful delivered projects were built to the highest and most demanding quality standards in the nuclear industry. Sartrex was able to develop these safety critical systems without any technical exceptions.

During the year, given the major projects that Sartrex was able to secure, the company invested heavily in its technology infrastructure. We implemented a new company wide Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system to increase organization wide efficiencies; and deployed cyber security, firewalls, crash plan procedures (including off site backups in real time) to ensure business continuity through security of data and networks.

All design and manufacturing activities happen in Canada at our local GTA facility. Sartrex operates within a 45000 sq. ft. fully integrated facility in Concord, Ontario and is registered to ISO 9001:2015, ASME NQA-1 and Z299.1

Our goal is to remain a global leader in custom design instrumentation and safety related technologies that are meant to safeguard the public’s health and safety. Sartrex is determined to continue to operate in a way that advances this objective, since we do not take this responsibility lightly.

Startup Instrumentation System

Startup Instrumentation System

Sartrex is pleased to announce the successful completion of the Startup Instrumentation System for Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power Co. Ltd. (KHNP). 

The Startup Instrumentation System (SUIS) helps operating staff in the continuous monitoring of neutron flux, at all times during the change of the state of the reactor (‘Approach to Critical’ or ‘Startup’). The in-core and out-of-core instrumentation is divided into three independent channels to provide redundancy. The start-up instrumentation is connected into the three channels D, E, F of first shutdown system and can automatically trip the reactor if any two of the channels fail, or indicate neutron flux in excess of the trip set-point.

The Startup Instrumentation System was recently re-designed and developed by Sartrex, using the latest technology. It has been designed to work in demanding conditions.

SUIS Project Team

The Startup Instrumentation System was manufactured by Sartrex as per the quality standards of ASME NQA1, CSA Z299.1, CSA N286.2 and ISO 9001:2015.

The Startup Instrumentation System underwent rigorous Electromagnetic Compatibility tests and was qualified to standards such as: IEC 61000-4-2, IEC 61000-4-3, IEC 61000-4-4, IEC 61000-4-5, IEC 61000-4-6, MIL-STD-461, CE-101, CE-102, RE-101 and RE-102
