Bechtel to Install Nuclear Power Plant’s Steam Generators; Greg Ashley Comments

BechtelLogoBechtel has won a contract to install three new steam generators for a nuclear power plant that supplies power to nearly one million homes.

The company will start engineering the generators in late 2016 and start installing the systems in March 2017 for the Pennsylvania-based Beaver Valley Nuclear Power Station, Bechtel said Thursday.

Bechtel will install the generators inside unit two, a pressurized water reactor that generates 904 megawatts of electricity.

“The replacement steam generators weigh approximately 370 tons and will require an experienced team to execute the work,” said said Greg Ashley, president of Bechtel’s nuclear business line.

FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Company, the plant’s owner, awarded Bechtel a contract in 2006 to install new generators for unit one.
