The Project:

A two-unit steam generator replacement project

The Issue:

The first of the two units experienced significant delays.  Modus’s consultants were engaged to perform a root cause analysis.

The Solution:

The analysis performed by Modus consultants resulted in a 69-day improvement from one outage to the next.  Modus Consultants also provided ongoing external oversight of the planning and execution phases for the second SGR outage, which set a new world record for two-piece replacements.

In addition to the project referenced above, Modus consultants have provided valuable assessments and advice on other steam generator replacement projects, including the following:

  • A readiness assessment of the EPC contractor’s schedule and construction plan, including an assessment of and strategic advice for resolving outstanding commercial issues.  The parties resolved all disputed issues and the project was completed ahead of schedule.
  • Vetting of project schedules and scope depiction for replacement of steam generators and other refurbishment activities at two-unit US nuclear station.
