Commercial nuclear plants are highly regulated and are under close oversight by US regulatory authorities and industry institutions to ensure safe and reliable operation, and protection of public health and safety. Development of plant modifications and upgrades requires a rigorous process and extensive evaluations to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements, codes and standards, plant’s design and licensing basis, as well as engineering best practices. This presentation describes the lessons learned associated with development of a first of a kind plant modification and the infrastructure required from a vendor to deliver a world class plant upgrade.
