Monday, Nov 04, 2013
HOUSTON, Nov. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Each year, POWER magazine selects the most noteworthy nuclear power plants worldwide to be designated Top Plants. Winning plants are profiled in the November issue, and awards are presented at the ELECTRIC POWER Conference & Exhibition being held in New Orleans, April 1-3, 2014. This year's award-winning nuclear Top Plants are:
Bruce Nuclear Generating Station, Kincardine, Ontario, Canada. With refurbishment of Units 1 and 2, Bruce Power completed the return to full operation of the Bruce Nuclear Generating Station—largest operating nuclear plant in the world. Along the way, it successfully logged numerous first-of-a-kind engineering accomplishments and transformed its workforce through new hiring and training.
Turkey Point and St. Lucie Nuclear Plants, Florida. The most recent nuclear capacity addition to Florida Power & Light's fleet was to Unit 4 at its Turkey Point plant, capping a four-unit, five-year, roughly $3 billion dollar uprate program that added 500 MW of capacity. It is arguably the largest U.S. nuclear project to be completed in recent history.
Waterford 3 Steam Electric Station, Killona, Louisiana. A steam generator replacement project at a nuclear plant is a major undertaking—one that Entergy carefully planned for. In spite of equipment delivery, weather, and workforce challenges, the work was completed safely and under budget.
