Day & Zimmermann Nabs Potential 10-Year $950M Contract to Supply Temporary Help for Tennessee Valley Authority

nuclear power plantPennsylvania-based engineering and construction company Day and Zimmermann has secured a potential 10-year, $950 million contract to supply workers and temporary personnel in case of outages at the Tennessee Valley Authority‘s nuclear power plants, Times Free Press reported Friday.

Dave Flessner writes the contract workers will serve to help TVA address increased workloads at the nuclear plants during refueling and repair outages as well as support operations at the Brown Ferry, Sequoyah and Watts Bar nuclear plants.

“Our goal is to drive performance, innovation and continuous improvement at a lower cost,” said Joe Grimes, TVA nuclear chief.

“This approach supports a variable workforce for both craft and non-craft workers to execute nuclear outage and supplemental maintenance work, as needed, at all three of our nuclear sites.”

The report said Day and Zimmermann’s directors approved the TVA contract during the company’s quarterly board meeting.

NASA Picks Luna’s RIO Laser for Navigation Doppler LiDAR

NASA has selected a Luna Innovations-built semiconductor laser for use in its Navigation Doppler LiDAR system. “To precisely measure the vehicle speed, direction, and distance, our NDL system uses both Doppler shift and laser beam travel time, which requires a highly stable single-frequency laser source,” said Farzin Amzajerdian, NDL principal investigator from NASA Langley Research Center. “The RIO laser from Luna Innovations has met NASA’s requirements for high reliability, low noise, and ultra-narrow linewidth.”
