Byron Hosts Tour Group from UW-Madison

 

Operations Instructor Mark Rasmussen fielded dozens of questions from nuclear engineers and retirees who recently visited Byron Station for a tour. The group included members of the American Nuclear Society chapter at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and five continuing education students from the school.

The group toured the plant’s main control room simulator and asked many questions on technical topics from the chemical compounds in the fuel assemblies to the exact flow and temperatures of water through the center of the reactor core. Rasmussen, a UW-Madison alumnus, knowledgeably addressed all of them.

The group learned a lot about the safety and redundancy of systems in place at Byron Station. And there was good discussion about the political climate surrounding nuclear power and ways to advocate for the green energy.
