Holtec Technology Campus
Thursday, June 21, 8:00 am-11:30 am
Join us as we drive just over the Ben Franklin Bridge to visit Holtec International’s brand new 50-acre State-of-the-Art Krishna P. Singh Technology Campus (KTC). KTC consists of a large manufacturing plant, a light manufacturing plant, a seven-story corporate engineering center, a system test facility (without nuclear fuel), and support installations such as a training center, non-destructive testing laboratory, and corporate apartments. The manufacturing plants are configured to incorporate the latest in fabrication machinery and information management software to enable precision manufacturing of large and complex weldments, such as those that will be required to assemble Holtec’s small modular reactor, SMR-160, currently under development by Holtec.
Come take a tour through Holtec’s Large Manufacturing Plant. Witness North America’s largest Davi Plate Roller, massive 6-axis milling and drilling machines, automatic welding machines, continuous flow fabrication, paint/blast booths and other advanced manufacturing equipment.
PSEG’s Salem and Hope Creek
Thursday, June 21, 7:00 am-1:00 pm
Join us for a behind the scenes tour of the second largest nuclear site in the country, PSEG Nuclear’s Salem & Hope Creek Generating Stations. Located along the Delaware River in Lower Alloways Creek, New Jersey, these 3 units generate electricity for 2.7 million homes every day. This is the only site in the United States to have both nuclear reactor technologies: Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) and Boiling Water Reactor (BWR).
Together, we will run simulations in the Hope Creek training simulator (an exact replica of the reactor control room), participate in a security weapons overview, enter the protected area as we tour through the Salem unit to reach the upper turbine deck, and finish the day with a driving tour of the Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation that uses Holtec International’s Dry Storage System. We will finish the day together with a photo opportunity at the base of the 512’ cooling tower.
