Nuclear power utilities employ highly skilled and experienced technical experts who work diligently to ensure operational excellence; however, the number and complexity of systems and components in a nuclear power plant – many of which must constantly be maintained and upgraded in order to ensure safety and optimal performance – often require testing and analysis knowledge that is beyond the scope of a utility’s capabilities.
