NOTURB®

| NEW | New version available : NOTURB-100 software
Use NOTURB® on your computer.


NOTURB® is a real-time video deblurring and processing tool for nuclear core inspection in live. By increasing the quality of the core assembly video, NOTURB® reduces the inspection time required for outages and increases operator confidence in the accuracy of the inspection process.

TECHWAY offers operators real-time video processing capabilities and a fully-integrated tool for nuclear core inspection, with a user-friendly interface. All the functionalities are developped to facilitate the maintenance operations.

NOTURB® system was developed following many years of close collaboration with EDF and is deployed extensively across the 19 EDF operated PWR fleets in France, where it has been proven to reduce the time taken for outage inspection operations.

This tool for nuclear core inspection is based on a very sophisticated patented algorithm.

Intuitive interface

NOTURB® filters sub-aquatic videos of the assemblies by digital processing. It eliminates turbulence caused by the fuel assemblies. NOTURB® also serves a valuable purpose for the operators in assembly identification, and enables them to make accurate gap measurements.

This tool for nuclear core inspection can be connected to inspection cameras, the system is compatible with all camera manufacturers.

NOTURB® captures and processes videos in real-time. Both raw and processed videos are displayed on the same screen.

NOTURB®’s user-friendly interface allows to quickly pick up all the functionalities.

NOTURB®’s video-restoration algorithm is patented by EDF.
