Nuclear Outages: An Approach to Project Controls

by R. D. Bryson, Sargent & Lundy, Chicago, IL, USA,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Transition in the Nuclear Industry


The nuclear refueling outage is short-lived, fast paced, and very costly to the nuclear utility. To better control modification expenses and reduce outage-related costs, utilities are now requiring more extensive preplanning programs for minimizing outage-related work scope and time. But as discussed in this paper, this planning for a particular outage task may need to begin some 3 years prior to the outage with the integration of engineering and construction preplanning that recognizes the environment of an operating nuclear power plant.
