The legacy of the Shippingport Atomic Power Station
Serving as the world’s first scalable nuclear power plant, Shippingport Atomic Power Station led the way for today’s nuclear generation fleet. Shippingport was centrally located roughly 25 miles from Pittsburgh, Pa., to provide electrical generation for many end-users. Shippingport also served as an experimental reactor that allowed engineers and designers the ability to test different core designs, and as such, the site housed additional testing equipment otherwise not commonly seen. The primary goal of Shippingport was always to generate electricity; however, its ability to function as an experimental reactor served utilities in further development of scalable nuclear generation.
Nuclear Standards News (NSN) is published six times a year and is dedicated solely to the news of nuclear standards and nuclear regulatory issues. The newsletter covers key events and issues in the nuclear standards field, standards actions, updates on publications, and a calendar of nuclear standards related events. The importance of standards on the international level continues to grow for the nuclear industry, and NSN endeavors to collect this information for you also. NSN provides an excellent way to stay on top of revisions, public review periods, clarification on ANS standards, and additions to industry standards.
NSN is available to all ANS members as a free member benefit. NSN is also a part of our ICONS subscriptions program but can be purchased as an individual subscription, as well.
