As early as 1975, EDF chose Jeumont Electric as its pilot manufacturer for all the French Nuclear Programme contracts for 900, 1300 and 1400 MW Nuclear Power Plants. For these NPP, Jeumont Electric designs and manufactures:
• safeguard and emergency generators
• production and safeguard induction motors (categories K1, K3 and NC)
• special energy production and safeguard generator sets.
JE is also specialized in maintenance on site, but also on the rotor and stator rewinding factory.
BUSINESS CASE : OCONEE (US) NUCLEAR POWER PLANT
The Oconee nuclear power plant on Lake Keowee, South Carolina, has three PWR (Pressurized Water Reactors) commissioned between July 1973 and 1974. Oconee is one of the USA’s largest power plants, with an overall output of 2600 MW (3 units).
MISSIONS PERFORMED BY JEUMONT ELECTRIC
As part of life extension program for American nuclear power plants, Oconee is the second plant in the USA (out of 102 units) to have its licence renewed by the NRC in order to extend its life by a further 20 years. Jeumont Electric delivered 13 replacement stators to Oconee for the motor pump sets initially manfactured by Westinghouse. This reverse engineering illustrates Jeumont Electric’s ability to reconstruct machines of all sizes, irrespective of the OEM.
