Southern Nuclear’s Joseph M. Farley Nuclear Plant has been selected to receive the 2013 Information Systems on Occupational Exposure (ISOE) World-Class ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) Performance Award, the company has announced.

Southern Nuclear President and CEO Steve Kuczynski stated in a release the accomplishment “is a direct result of the engagement by the radiation workers supporting the plant during refueling outages and during power generation.”

The ISOE system was created in 1992 to provide radiation protection professionals a way to share methods to optimize radiological protection services at nuclear power plants. ISOE is jointly sponsored by the Nuclear Energy Agency and the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Southern Nuclear is a subsidiary of Southern Co.
