Nuclear power plants


Nuclear power provides about 10% of the world’s electricity, and 18% of electricity in OECD countries. Almost all reports on future energy supply suggest that these numbers will raise as nuclear power is an environmentally benign way of producing reliable electricity on a large scale.

Important advantages to nuclear energy includes its ability to produce massive amounts of carbon-free electricity, its low fuel cost and quantity which reduces mining and transportation effects on environment. Thereby nuclear power has one of the smallest carbon footprints and essential to our response to climate change and greenhouse gas emissions.

Example of HF Jensen products applied in Nuclear Power Plants

Over the past 40 years HF Jensen has collaborated with Nuclear Power Plants and developed sensors that can measure displacement. Our sensor LDT 5 HRWS has been used to give feedback from valves in nuclear power plants.  It is particularly robust and able to sustain extreme temperatures, high pressure and radioactive environments.

Our latest collaboration was with a Swedish consultancy company, where we provided sensors which measure the movement of fuel rods in a high temperature, pressurized test environment.

At HF Jensen, we continuously optimize our sensor solutions to meet the latest standards and classification requirements, and our in-house development and production enable full flexibility and allow us to customize solutions to fit the exact need of our customers.
