Bechtel announced that it has completed a steam generation replacement (SGR) project ahead of schedule on Unit 3 of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) in San Clemente, California.

“We completed the SGR in 80 days and 13 hours, which was sooner than scheduled,” said Carl Rau, president of Bechtel’s nuclear power business. “Not only did we finish the job early; we did it safely and with the highest quality standards.” The SGR took place during a longer outage previously scheduled by the plant’s operator.

Bechtel has a long history at SONGS, owned by Southern California Edison Company, having provided project management, engineering, construction, procurement, and startup services when the three units were initially built starting back in 1964. Bechtel is a recognized leader in the nuclear industry and known for its SGR accomplishments. In the last 30 years, the company has completed 35 steam generation replacements and has set and reset industry records for lowest radiation exposure, shortest outages, and maintaining personnel safety on SGR projects.
