Texas nuclear power plant to get new processing equipment

Comanche Peak nuclear power plant Texas plant processing computers Luminant Rolls-Royce

Rolls-Royce won a $13.7 million contract to replace plant process computers at Luminant’s 2,300 MW Comanche Peak Nuclear Power Plant in Texas.

Rolls-Royce will replace the computers with more modern PPC technology on both pressurized water reactors, as well as the PPC training system located within its full scope training simulator.

The plant process computers gather data such as pressure, temperature, flows and valve positions from other plant monitoring instrumentation, and then displays that data in the control room. The computers also use the data to sound alarms whenever a parameter exceeds a pre-defined limit.
