NOLDOR S.R.L. offers
consultancy services, statistical analysis, development of mathematical simulation models mainly in the field of hydrology, though is also
possible to spread these activities to other applications. Some examples are
Nuclear power plants in Atucha
A comprehensive hydrological study for Atucha
nuclear power station was carried out including a general analysis about
the fluvial framework in the surroundings of the plants.
Later, a study on extreme floods and
drought flows was performed on the base of a historical analysis and
an important data collection coming from several gauge stations. This
information was used to develop a statistical analysis of extreme
values and determination of maximum probable events. The future
conditions in Parana river and the downstream effects for
different hydraulic works were evaluated afterwards. The report also
included a study on curve rectification and a comprehensive analysis
about fluvial sedimentology and sediment transport in the nuclear
plant canal for cooling water. Finally, a hydrologic balance was carried out involving
the analyse of pluvial regime, soils, groundwater and evapotranspiration.
This work was complemented by an extreme drought
flow analysis including a study about the hydrologic and hydraulic
characteristics in Parana de las Palmas river followed by an analysis
of the fluvial regime, tide propagation, winds and extremes events.
The cooling water inlet canal for the nuclear power plant was
analysed in deep involving geothermic, structural and morphologic
characteristics, sedimentation and bed dredging. Making part of the
recommendations and conclusions, a floods and drought flows forecast
model was provided. Both studies led to the preparation of a
complete theoretical work (more than one hundred pages) titled in
Spanish "Análisis estadístico de
valores extremos. Aplicaciones en hidrología" ("Extreme
Value Statistical Analysis. Applications in Hydrology") which can
be freely downloaded in this site.
A study on fluvial traffic and navigation in Parana
river was developed as a part of a safety and licensing studies for
nuclear power station. It included an analysis of the
general situation in Parana river and its main harbours. A complete
enumeration of ships sailing this river was presented involving
different kind of vessels and big ships, especially those carrying
hazardous or flammable materials. After analysing different navigation
conditions a simulation mathematical model was proposed. Its main goal
was to evaluate the risk of eventual collisions and probability of
explosions near the nuclear plant.
This project led to the development simulation software for analysis
of explosion risk after a ship collision.
Nuclear power plant in
of starting the operation of Rio Grande hydroelectric complex, a
preventive analysis for Embalse nuclear power station was done. It was
related with the safety of such a central.
A study regarding the sitting of storage silos for
irradiated fuel elements coming for Embalse nuclear plant was
also participated in evaluation of thermal
dissipation for the silos to be used for cobalt-60 storage.
A hydrologic study for sitting of low energy a nuclear power plant (CAREM
reactor type) was carried out. San Luis, Argentina.
A study about ozone production in cobalt-60 irradiation
plants was envisaged.
A feasibility study about application of ionising
radiation sources for sewage treatment was done. With this work the
project and construction for the Sewage Treatment Plant (PIBA)
started, Tucuman, Argentina. There was also some collaboration in the basic
design and preliminary calculations for such a plant.
Another comprehensive hydrologic study with regard the sitting of PIBA
was developed. This work included analysis of weather, hydrogeology,
impact of hydroelectric stations, seismic, floods and so on. As in
other cases, statistical, deterministic and stochastic analysis
