GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH) implemented its newest chemical decontamination solution for the first time in North America.
The solution was used to successfully decontaminate and mitigate stress corrosion cracking in portions of a nuclear power plant’s recirculation piping. GEH built the solution upon its proven Low Temperature NobleChem technology. It implemented the enhanced solution developed by alliance partner Hitachi-GE Nuclear Energy to decontaminate and mitigate the plant’s reactor recirculation systems and decontaminate the reactor water cleanup system.
“By removing contamination build up and mitigating the stress corrosion cracking of stainless steel piping and components, this innovative solution address two main challenges that boiling water reactor plant operators face today,” said Lance Hall, Executive Vice President of Nuclear Fuels and Services, GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy.
