TVEL and St. Petersburg Polytechnic To Cooperate On Digital Engineering Technologies
Russia’s St Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU) signed an agreement for the development of cooperation between Rosatom’s fuel company TVEL and the Competence Centre of the National Technological Initiative (NTI) SPbPU New Production Technologies.
The Roadmap, signed last 16 February and planned until the end of 2023, covers a wide range of scientific, technological and educational areas.
In the field of nuclear fuel production, the agreement provides for the use of digital methods and engineering technologies (digital twins and digital models) in the development and testing of new products and materials in a number of areas of TVEL’s activity, but the introduction of the most advanced technological developments is also planned in non-nuclear areas of business.
The document also provides for the organisation and holding of a series of scientific and practical seminars on the topic of modern approaches to the design and development of science-intensive technology, as well as the implementation of a joint master’s programme at SPbPU’s Institute of Advanced Manufacturing Technologies.
