The March 2011 events at Fukushima nuclear power plant have underscored the importance of resiliency of nuclear power plants for beyond-design-basis events, especially seismic related.
Retrofitting nuclear power plant turbines has a positive impact on long-term plant reliability and performance. In the case of the Donald C. Cook Nuclear Generating Station in Michigan, a retrofit has been scheduled to support plant operation beyond the current license period.
We have all heard the phrase "oh that's for nuclear - they're different." While nuclear is "different" in many realms, it is not so different in the realm of industrial cyber security.
The March 2011 events at Fukushima nuclear power plant have underscored the importance of resiliency of nuclear power plants for beyond-design-basis events (especially seismic related).
A decommissioning project at a nuclear power plant is unlike any other power generation project. There are so many factors to deal with that are not seen in traditional power plants.
Nuclear power in Asia is hit or miss. Reactors in Japan are crawling to begin restart procedures for all but two of their shut down nuclear power plants, while others are building reactors at record speed.
The successful operation of both a nuclear power plant and its distributing utilities depends largely on the reliability of the electrical grid system.
The Impact of the EPA's Final Rule on the Power Generation Industry
The day Nevada Senator Harry Reid announced he would not seek re-election when his term is up in 2016, many in the nuclear industry speculated that the Yucca Mountain nuclear repository would now come to fruition.
Turkey has been trying to establish nuclear power plants since the 1960s. Five different attempts have been made between 1960 and 2010, but none of them have borne any fruit for political and economic reasons.
