GE Hitachi announced it has been awarded an integrated outage contract by Exelon Generation for the utility’s entire fleet of 15 boiling water reactor nuclear energy facilities and three pressurized water reactor units.
The $140 million outage services agreement will run through spring 2021 and includes assisting with refuel floor activities and performing under-vessel and inspection services for Exelon’s BWRs.
“Our partnership with Exelon is long-standing and we’re pleased to be chosen to continue to support the safe and efficient operation of plants that provide clean electricity to millions of homes and businesses,” said Lance Hall, executive vice president of Nuclear Services, GEH. “Whether it’s through outage services or our recently announced digital partnership, we’re excited to help Exelon deliver on the industry’s initiative to advance safety, reliability and economic performance.”
GE and Exelon recently signed an agreement through which GE’s entire suite of Predix software applications will be deployed across Exelon Generation’s fleet.
