B&W wins steam generator contract for Dominion nuclear power fleet

Babcock & Wilcox Nuclear Energy Inc. won a multi-year fleet services contract from Dominion Generation to provide comprehensive steam generator inspection, repair and cleaning services for the company’s three operating nuclear power plants — North Anna in Mineral, Va; Surry in Surry, Va; and Millstone in Waterford, Conn.

Using robotic tooling and inspection technology, B&W NE will provide eddy current testing, visual inspections and water lancing for steam generators in a total of six units, two at each of the power plants. B&W NE’s recognized technology provides the industry with a cost-effective solution with low dose rates and short outage schedules.

“We look forward to providing the Dominion fleet with exceptional steam generator inspection and repair services,” said Joe Zwetolitz, President, B&W NE. “Our demonstrated technology and expertise set the B&W team apart in the nuclear industry.”

The steam generator services contract will begin this fall.
