Rosenergoatom has launched a project to duplicate the smart video analytics system

Rosenergoatom (part of the Electric Power Division of Rosatom State Corporation) has launched a project to duplicate the so-called safety and industrial safety video analysis system as part of the digitalization program. It is planned that by February 2024 it will be implemented at 9 out of 11 Russian nuclear power plants.

A pilot project to create this system has already been successfully implemented at the Kola NPP in 2019, and in 2021 it was included in the Register of Russian software.

The system is designed to analyze the video stream from surveillance cameras in manufacturing areas, where it is required to comply with safety and industrial safety requirements.

With the help of an artificial neural network, the process of detecting violations of the rules for the use of personal protective equipment in manufacturing areas where operating electrical installations are located is fully automated. The system allows detecting and registering up to 95-98% of violations.

“Despite the fact that this system was created to control compliance with safety regulations, the experience of the Kola NPP shows that most of the workers perceive it positively, as a kind of checklist that will show whether you did everything correctly while using PPE. A complete set of personal protective equipment consists of a large number of elements, and due to the video analysis system, the risk that one forgets to wear something is reduced to zero,” stressed Victor Tsaranu, head of the project office for the implementation of digital solutions during the operation of Rosenergoatom NPPs.

“Technologies are developing, and we are developing with them. As part of this project, we plan not only to replicate the solution of the Kola NPP, but also to expand the functionality: to train the system to recognize the initial signs of fire and smoke, detect abandoned objects, and also identify the identity of the offender using Face ID,” said Oleg Shalnov, director of the IT Project Management Department and the integration of Rosenergoatom.

The project will be carried out in two stages. The first stage, planned for 2021-2023, will involve the Balakovskaya, Kalinin, Kola and Rostov NPPs, and the second in 2022-2024 will concern the Beloyarsk, Kursk, Leningrad, Novovoronezh and Smolensk nuclear power plants. The project is being implemented together with VisorLabs.
