Constellation ENG receives EPRI award for nuclear program

Tools

Two members of Constellation's Energy Nuclear Group (CENG) team have received EPRI's Technology Transfer Award for their proactive efforts in the application of research and development in the area of obsolescence management.

CENG previously had no formal obsolescence program, but Laura Farrel and Tim Rodgers using EPRI guidelines developed an obsolescence management process, clarified roles, developed prioritization examples and implemented key performance indicators to ultimately avoid obstacles other utilities had experienced and identify such useful implementation tools as system health reports.

"Equipment reliability is a major focus area for our organization," said Gene Van Slyke, CENG's Senior Vice President of Support Services. "Obsolescence issues remain a major challenge for the nuclear industry. We are only beginning our journey in resolving these challenging issues."
