Framatome and Lockheed Martin successfully completed the installation and site acceptance testing of a new Engineered Safety Features Actuation System (ESFAS) replacement for Exelon Generation’s Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant, Unit 2, during the plant’s spring 2019 refueling outage.
The new ESFAS boasts triple modular redundancy and allows plant operators to control and manage reactor operations to ensure efficient and reliable power generation. The contract to develop the customized analog system was awarded in 2017 to Framatome in collaboration with global security and aerospace company Lockheed Martin’s Energy line of business.
Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant is located in Calvert County, Maryland. Its two pressurized water reactors produce 1,850 megawatts of energy, enough electricity to power more than one million homes.
