    Global Ties Boost Nuclear Plant Performance


    by dwjtelevision

    To increase public awareness of innovations within the nuclear energy industry and their importance, the Nuclear Energy Institute has produced a series of videos about projects that have been recognized with a Top Industry Practice award. This is the second in a series of four videos that will be posted on the Nuclear Energy Institute’s website on a weekly basis. This video, “Global Ties Boost Nuclear Plant Performance,” highlights an international exchange of best practices by Exelon Nuclear. In its international technical exchange program, Exelon Nuclear has partnered in technical exchange with three of the largest international electric utilities: Korea Hydro and Nuclear Power Co., Tokyo Electric Power Co. and Electricity de France. Together, the four companies operate nearly one-quarter of the nuclear energy plants worldwide. All four have benefited from sharing plant operating experience, best practices, lessons learned, equipment reliability, risk management, and predictive and preventative maintenance practices. Released on July 7, the first video, “High Tech Stress Relief,” looked at the challenge of microscopic stress corrosion cracking in plant systems.
