L-3 Mapps supplying upgraded nuclear control room simulator Florida Power & Light St. Lucie nuclear power plant

L-3 Mapps signed multiple contracts with Florida Power & Light in relation to a simulator at the two-unit, 2,000 MW St. Lucie nuclear power plant.

L-3 Mapps will rehost the existing full scope simulator, simulate new digital controllers to support a plant modification, replace the simulator’s input/output gateway computer and provide a new classroom simulator.

Work is already underway and the updated simulator is expected to be ready for use by the end of 2013.
