LaSalle Station Employs Virtual Tour Technology to Ensure Safe and Efficient Refueling OutageLaSalle Station Employs Virtual Tour Technology to Ensure Safe and Efficient Refueling Outage<p></p><p>MARSEILLES, III.  — Operators powered down Lasalle Generating Station Unit 1 early this morning to begin the nuclear power plant's spring refueling outage, but this year will be different for the hundreds of employees and outage workers tasked with refueling and performing maintenance on the plant while it's offline. </p><p>Station employees have spent the last few months mapping every inch of the plant using 360-degree cameras to create virtual tours of the plant. These tours are coupled with portal technology to provide live video, temperature, and up-to-date radiation dose information throughout the plant. This technology reduces work time inside the plant, limiting radiological exposure to record low levels. It is also the first step in creating a true virtual reality simulation of the plant that will improve employee training and other areas.</p><p>The Digital Plant Viewer, developed by Exelon Generation's innovation group, is an intuitive web-based mapping interface that accesses radiological surveys, live video feeds, and 360-degree images. While nuclear plant employees use a vast array of mapping, telemetry, and other data systems to run the plant daily, Digital Plant Viewer pulls the technological systems together in one place for the first time.</p><p>During the refueling outage, workers will perform approximately 14,500 maintenance and refurbishment activities that cannot be performed while the unit is operating. The work tasks are designed to enhance the unit's ability to provide reliable, carbon-free electricity for years to come. The new tool will help improve planning for maintenance tasks, briefing work teams, and in-field execution, resulting in greater efficiency and accuracy.</p><p>"Our goal is to perform every refueling or maintenance task during the outage flawlessly," said LaSalle Station Site Vice President Bill Trafton. "This technology will help our people to work safer and smarter, because they can get more data and information about their tasks before they even enter the plant. A successful refueling outage will allow the plant to come back online and resume providing reliable, zero-emission energy to the community."</p><p>Digital Plant Viewer is one of many innovations in use across Exelon Generation. To date, innovations and new technology solutions have generated more than $160 million in operational efficiencies. </p><p>In addition to implementing enhanced technologies, LaSalle Station is bringing in more than 1,800 supplemental workers to help support the 800 employees during the outage. These additional workers provide a short-term boost to the local economy, with many of the workers staying in area hotels, shopping at local stores, and eating at restaurants. During the LaSalle Unit 2 outage in 2017, the station spent more than $76 million with local vendors and payroll for its supplemental workers.</p><p>"The Ottawa Area welcomes the supplemental workers who come to support Exelon's LaSalle Station refueling outage," said Assistant Executive Director of the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce Meg Skelly. "The influx of traffic, during an otherwise quiet part of the year, is a boost to our local restaurants, shops and hotels."</p><p>LaSalle has two reactors, each of which is refueled once every 24 months. Approximately one-third of the unit's fuel will be replaced. LaSalle Unit 2 will continue to generate electricity during the Unit 1 outage.​</p>http://www.exeloncorp.com/newsroom/lasalle-station-employs-virtual-tour-technology-to-ensure-safe-and-efficient-refueling-outage2/19/2018 4:00:00 PM
Calvert Cliffs Refueling Outage Powers Local EconomyCalvert Cliffs Refueling Outage Powers Local Economy<p>LUSBY, MD – Operators at<strong> </strong>Exelon Generation's<strong> </strong>Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant removed Unit 1 from service just after midnight Sunday to begin a planned refueling outage, capping a record-setting run of 628 consecutive days of power generation. Work completed during the refueling outage will help the unit deliver zero-emission, resilient and reliable power to almost a million homes and businesses during the next two-year operating cycle. </p><p>To support the refueling outage, approximately 1,200 additional workers will travel to Calvert for several weeks, filling nearby hotels to capacity and increasing foot traffic in restaurants and shops at a time when tourism is usually slow.</p><p>"Calvert Cliffs' annual refueling outages have a huge impact on our local economy and this year will be no different," said Calvert County Chamber of Commerce President/CEO Bob Carpenter. "Our business community welcomes the hundreds of people coming to Calvert County to our hotels, motels, restaurants and tourist attractions." </p><p>While the unit is offline, technicians will replace nearly one-third of the reactor's fuel and perform more than 7,500 inspections, tests, maintenance activities and modifications. Many of the tasks performed during the outage cannot be accomplished while the unit is online.</p><p>Additionally, this year, Calvert is replacing a high-pressure turbine on the non-nuclear side of the plant. This investment in state-of-the-art equipment is expected to result in an additional 11 megawatts of generation.</p><p>"We are proud to produce almost a third of Maryland's power with clean, safe and reliable nuclear generation," said Calvert Cliffs Site Vice President Mark Flaherty. "Our outage investments in state-of- the art equipment and new technologies will help ensure safe, reliable operations for years to come." </p><p>Calvert Cliffs is located on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay in Calvert County and is Maryland's only nuclear energy facility. The station is home to two pressurized water reactors capable of generating 1,756 megawatts combined, enough to power more approximately 30 percent of all homes and businesses in the state of Maryland. </p>http://www.exeloncorp.com/newsroom/calvert-cliffs-refueling-outage-powers-local-economy-(2)2/19/2018 4:00:00 PM
Nine Mile Point Recognized For Environmental Stewardship With Gold Certification From Wildlife Habitat Council Nine Mile Point Recognized For Environmental Stewardship With Gold Certification From Wildlife Habitat Council <p>​OSWEGO, NY – Employees at Exelon Generation's Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station led efforts to build habitats for blue birds, bats, pollinators and wood ducks over a period of several years, ultimately resulting in Gold Level Certification from the Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) for the station.</p><p>"We wanted to give back to the community not only by building more habitats but also by educating local children and giving them the opportunity to assist," said Jeanne Robideau, environmental chemist and chair of the station Environmental Stewardship Committee. "We're looking forward to expanding our efforts moving forward."</p><p>The employee committee first began the process in 2015, with a site visit from a WHC representative who provided habitat development recommendations based upon the site's ecosystems.  The employees then partnered with local Boy Scouts to build six wood duck nest boxes and four bat houses. The group also constructed 10 blue bird houses at NMP and several others at two parks in the county.</p><p>The committee also enlisted the help of a local middle/high school environmental club when it expanded its pollinator garden to include a host of different native plant species and installed a bee hive near the garden.</p><p>"Wildlife Habitat Council congratulates Exelon's Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station on achieving WHC Conservation Certification, with a designation of Gold Certified," said Thelma Redick, senior director, Conservation Content & Partnerships.  "It has been a pleasure for all of us to interact with the dedicated Exelon team as they attend our annual WHC Conservation Conference and frequent Conservation Academy webinars, demonstrating their commitment to continuously learn and drive improvement of these excellent conservation projects that include a bat project and avian projects for bluebirds and wood ducks, along with an extensive pollinator project for a variety of pollinators including native bee species."</p><p>"Environmental stewardship is one of our core values at Exelon and we are very proud to have achieved the highest level of certification from the Wildlife Habitat Council at Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station," said Site Vice President Peter Orphanos. "Our employees seek to protect the environment in a number of ways, but most importantly through continued safe, reliable operation of carbon-free nuclear plants that contribute to clean air for all."</p><p>Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station is located seven miles northeast of Oswego and 50 miles north of Syracuse.  The station can produce more than 1,937 megawatts of carbon-free electricity – enough to power nearly two million homes.
