SGT West (SGT), a URS Washington Division/AREVA NP joint venture company, provided services for replacing four steam generators at Unit 1 of the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant (DCPP) in California.
An alternate path to achieving the nuclear renaissance?
It may be time for U.S. nuclear power plant projects with a first-wave build strategy to consider moving to the second wave.
The main function of the control rod guide tubes (CRGT) in a nuclear power plant is to ensure that the rod cluster control assembly drop (RCCA) meets safety requirements, stopping the chain reaction in a limited time.
Researchers are using computer simulation techniques to characterize residual stresses in structural welded or cast components.
Improved seal technology can reduce downtime and increase reactor coolant pump performance.
