October 5, 2012, 6:00AMANS Nuclear Cafe

Today's ANS Nuclear Matinee shows viewers a time-lapse film of a steel superstructure being built on top of the dome of Sequoyah-2's reactor containment building. The work is being done to ready the site for a large maintenance project scheduled at the plant. When complete, the superstructure will support the removal of parts of the dome along with the reactor containment vessel and steam generator enclosures.

Then, four steam generators at Sequoyah-2 will be replaced, as part of the Tennessee Valley Authority's ongoing efforts to maintain a safe and quality performance and to sustain reliable production of energy for TVA customers.
