Safe and reliable production of nuclear power continues to be a cornerstone of the nation’s quest to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Targeting the efficient and reliable operation of its Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station in Scriba, N.Y., over the next several decades, the Constellation Energy Nuclear Group (CENG) has signed a long-term services agreement with GE (NYSE: GE).

Extending the reliable service of existing U.S. nuclear plants is critical to meeting the country’s growing cleaner energy demands. The GE-Constellation long-term agreement (LTA) is designed to help Nine Mile Point, a two-unit, boiling water reactor (BWR) nuclear plant, successfully operate through its Unit 1 and Unit 2 license extensions to 2029 and 2046, respectively.

The LTA will cover key nuclear instrumentation and associated technical services at the plant, and features products from the Reuter Stokes Measurement Solutions product line. Under the multi-year, multi-outage agreement, GE provides nuclear plant owners with a supply of critical parts, inventory management, and technical services.

The services provided under the LTA are designed help plant owners fine-tune the operations of their plants—to help them run their plants “smarter”—by utilizing the tools and a relationship to facilitate knowledge sharing, root cause analysis and project management.

The CENG and GE teams worked collaboratively to develop a cost-effective support package structured to maximize signal path reliability of the Neutron Monitoring System. Under the terms of the agreement, GE will provide its full suite of reactor power monitoring instrumentation, including its most advanced Local Power Range Monitor (LPRM) sensor, and associated technical service expertise. With the signing of this agreement, GE now has long-term contracts in place with the majority of the BWRs in North America for the supply of nuclear instrumentation and/or technical services.

“The global energy landscape is undergoing change and requires more flexible, responsive service approaches and more cooperative efforts in which we partner with customers to deliver value. This LTA can help Constellation Energy Nuclear Group operate efficiently by contributing to their financial and technical performance, while decreasing their inventory and schedule risk,” said Leo VanderSchuur, general manager of GE’s Reuter Stokes Measurement Solutions product line. “We are excited to continue this relationship and help provide efficient solutions for CENG.”

With more than 50 years of industry experience, GE’s Reuter Stokes product team is dedicated to product innovation, exceptional service and cutting-edge technology in its nuclear instrumentation. Having developed a complete line of Reuter Stokes in-core and ex-core sensors for BWR and PWR applications, GE is the global supplier for dependable and accurate nuclear sensors.
