Nuclear power plant replacement work completed

Electrical Builders Inc. (EBI) performed a complete isolated phase bus replacement on the 867 MW Unit 1 of the 1,736 MW Quad Cities Nuclear Plant owned by Exelon Nuclear. Quad Cities uses General Electric (NYSE: GE) Type 3 boiling water reactors.

The replacement process included the complete removal of the isolated phase bus, support steel and air handling system. EBI also reinstalled the subsequent replacement modifications for the new IPBD system to include post installation testing.

EBI will perform the same work at Exelon’s 1,734 MW Dresden nuclear power plant in Illinois.
