GE-Hitachi Nuclear Energy, Inc. Key Developments
GE-Hitachi Nuclear Energy and Exelon Generation Announce Joint Development of Two Digital Solutions
Sep 29 15
GE-Hitachi Nuclear Energy, Inc. and Exelon Generation announced the joint development of two digital solutions based on GE’s Predix platform, the operating system of the Industrial Internet. One solution in joint development, an application known as Watchtower, will utilize data to predict asset performance and enable Exelon to obtain real-time operational status of plant equipment while also receiving proactive notifications of possible machine issues. The other solution, an application known as Lighthouse, will use advanced analytics to examine historical organizational performance indicators to enhance decision-making capabilities, reduce costs and optimize operational performance. The applications are part of GE’s new Digital Power Plant solution that will enable utilities and customers around the world to apply software, analytics and artificial intelligence to the crucial task of generating and managing electricity cleanly, efficiently, safely and securely in the cyber environment. The applications are the culmination of extensive work by a team of GE and Exelon employees to brainstorm and develop solutions to some of the industry’s biggest challenges.
GE Hitachi Delivers Safety Enhancement Solution to Customers in Japan
Aug 26 15
GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy announced that it is working with utility customers in Japan to deliver Turbine Water Lubricated (TWL) pumps manufactured by ClydeUnion Pumps, an SPX brand. The steam powered pumps are designed to ensure emergency reactor cooling in the event of a complete station blackout and can function when fully submerged in water. GEH has shipped two units to TEPCO s Kashiwazaki-Kariwa Nuclear Power Plant. Two additional units are scheduled to ship to the plant later this year. GEH has additional commitments to support systems for Chugoku Electric Power Company s two Shimane plants, and Tohoku Electric Power Company s Onagawa and Higashidori plants.
GEH and Exelon Unveil New Remote Uncoupling Tool
Apr 1 15
GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy in coordination with Exelon Generation, has unveiled a new remote uncoupling tool used for nuclear power plant maintenance. This new tool remotely disconnects - uncouples - control rods (one of the pieces of equipment that allows operators to control power production) from their associated blades at the bottom of the reactor during preventative maintenance. Utilizing the battery-powered, wireless device minimizes the amount of radiation that workers are exposed to and allows parallel work activities to take place under the reactor pressure vessel during service outages. The tool has been shown to reduce radiation dose associated with uncoupling by as much as 60%. The tool, based on 3-D printed prototypes created on-site at GEH's world headquarters in Wilmington, N.C., has been successfully deployed during recent maintenance work at the Dresden Generating Station in Morris, Ill. and the Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station in Delta, Pa. A total of 19 drives were uncoupled with the tool at Peach Bottom and 25 were uncoupled at Dresden. Control rod blades are long, cruciform metal-tube components that contain neutron-absorbing material and are positioned adjacent to nuclear fuel assemblies within the reactor core. Operators remotely adjust the position of these blades to manage power generation. In order to remove control rod blades during service outages the blades must be uncoupled from drive mechanisms underneath the reactor pressure vessel. Any blades that are not successfully uncoupled from underneath the vessel must be uncoupled from a refueling floor above the vessel, a more time consuming process. Because of the tool's effectiveness it was not necessary to conduct any uncoupling from the refueling floor during the Dresden and Peach Bottom outages.
