Power and temperature control for nuclear plants



Finding an equipment vendor that will partner with plant engineers, project managers, and outage coordinators and has a track record of conceptualizing and executing solutions capable of supporting planned nuclear plant refueling outages is critical to the success and safety of your maintenance operations.

Time is of the essence when performing maintenance projects during refueling outages. Safety and Time are of the principle when implementing maintenance or upgrade projects. Each day an outage exceeds its estimated timeline, it reduces plant uptime, adds to the cost of maintenance activities, and challenges the ALARA goals.

Aggreko is nimble enough to accommodate delivery of solutions within your detailed outage project time frames to ensure maintenance activities are completed as scheduled. We employ experts familiar with the nuclear industry who have both the experience and accreditation to contribute systems that meet your maintenance objectives, including:

  • Supporting outage projects with power, fluid system, and compressed air equipment
  • Deploying alternate power and cooling systems to supplement plant systems
  • Offering solutions when LCO commitments become challenged
  • Safely increasing worker stay-time through heat mitigation

Repairing, replacing, or decontaminating key HVAC, refrigeration, and heat rejection system components are among the most common maintenance activities during nuclear plant outages. Some of these components represent a single point of vulnerability and pose a risk to plant reliability and personnel safety. Even non-critical component failure can result in unacceptable risks. Aggreko’s technicians and engineering teams have industry experience to serve our nuclear plant customers. We work closely with your system’s engineers, project managers, or outage supervisors to address your specific project requirements.

Preserving plant and personnel safety

Ensuring worker safety in the nuclear power industry is paramount in any outage-related activities. Aggreko understands the importance of developing heat mitigation techniques and workspace cooling solutions to increase worker “stay-time” parameters, while always maintaining safe working conditions.

If you’re looking to partner with an industry-familiar firm to provide turnkey power and cooling solutions for your plant outage projects, look no further than the nuclear experts at Aggreko. Our project teams are committed to limiting outage days and keeping workers safe.

The following represents an example of equipment comprising a supplemental ice condensing glycol cooling system:

  • Refrigeration units capable of reducing fluid temperatures to -5°F
  • Electrical distribution to switch between house-power and generators
  • Circulation pumps capable of producing the required pressure differential for the system
  • Accessories: manifolds, power cables, fuel tanks, expansion tanks, etc.
