System and data complexity, a large number of degradation mechanisms, spontaneous findings and unexpected questions by the authority can make the license renewal process a great challenge. This process is difficult for the first time renewal and repeated renewal gets tougher as the plant ages.


Unique experience in license renewal
The License Renewal Services have helped US utilities extend the safe operating life of their pressurized water reactor (PWR) and boiling water reactor (BWR) nuclear power plants (NPPs) by 20 years, while ensuring continued return on investment to their shareholders. Our roadmap addresses specific technical challenges such as cable aging technology development, concrete inspection and non-destructive examination (NDE) development, and monitoring technology development.
