GA-EMS designed, manufactured and delivered full plant radiation monitoring systems to the Tennessee Valley Authority to install in Watts Bar 2, the first new nuclear plant in the U.S. since 1996. Each monitoring system is made to meet a variety of safety and non-safety requirements, including area and process monitors and control room indicators.
The unit recently achieved criticality and is set to reach full operations by summer 2016. It is currently undergoing comprehensive testing to validate plant systems and controls at various power levels to ensure the safety system operates as designed.
