Exelon files to deactivate the Byron reactors
Exelon on June 16 filed with grid operator PJM Interconnection to deactivate the two Byron reactors in Illinois. The move came one day after the Illinois Senate adjourned without reaching an agreement on a comprehensive energy package that would have provided nearly $700 million to keep Byron’s reactors, as well as Exelon’s Dresden and Braidwood nuclear power plants, in operation. (In August of 2020, Exelon announced that it would close the economically challenged Byron and Dresden facilities in the fall of 2021 without some form of state aid to provide compensation for their clean power.) The state’s House of Representatives also adjourned earlier this week without taking up the bill.
Zachry Nuclear is a full service engineering firm that has been providing engineering, design, software development, and operations & maintenance (O&M) support services for electric utilities, advanced reactor designers, research organizations, regulators, Architect/Engineers, fuel vendors, and government energy agencies worldwide for over 45 years. Zachry Nuclear, and predecessors, Proto-Power Corporation (PPC), Numerical Applications, Inc. (NAI) and Computer Simulation & Analysis, Inc. (CSA), are internationally recognized for our expertise in thermal hydraulics analysis, radiological analysis, safety analysis and software development. We develop several industry standard analysis codes such as GOTHIC (coarse grid CFD), RETRAN-3D (system thermal-hydraulic and 3D neutron kinetics), VIPRE (subchannel), PROTO-FLO (piping analysis and design), PROTO-HX (heat exchanger performance), RADTRAD-NAI (dose and radiological consequences) and also develop custom software solutions. We specialize in applying these and other tools to provide significant cost savings for our clients through efficiency improvements, margin recapture, operations flexibility, and effective designs by developing innovative engineering solutions through automation, optimization, advanced modeling and simulation and machine learning methods. Our clients include existing plants and advanced reactor vendors supporting many of the SMR, non-LWR and microreactors currently being designed and developed both in the US and internationally.
