In this multidisciplinary internship at Sofinel, an EDF and AREVA subsidiary created for the construction of the EPRs around the world, I performed multiple tasks.
Working on the mechanical equipment group I learned how a magnificent project like the construction of a nuclear power plant is managed. A strong, rigorous and standardized engineering change management has to be implemented in order to maintain the safety level and the technical and cost consistency of the project.
In fact, a contract is constantly changing because of the evolving specifications for the equipments and the modifications caused by other elements. Therefore multiple procedures and the associated sheets have to be created to manage this constant change.
In this report we will find described the organization of the Flamanville’s EPR project as well as a description of the engineering change management implemented. Examples of those procedures and sheets will also be presented in order to better understand the project organization and the work of a project engineer.
