Improving Nuclear Plant Safety

Improving Nuclear Plant Safety

When deadlines, budgets, and installation environment are constrained, our modular SBO installations offer product completed in a controlled factory environment and installed at site within a few days. This sets a new benchmark in terms of deployment velocity and simplicity of installation, minimizing site works and on-site disruption. 

One such installation was implemented at the Dukovany Nuclear Power Plant in the Czech Republic. See how Caterpillar manufactured, delivered, and installed a modular, fully integrated, post-Fukushima SBO solution in less than 12 months.

Customized safety, security, reliability, and support 

The nuclear industry demands the highest levels of commitment and quality standards from its suppliers and machinery. There are few industries where safety is more important in the design, operation, and maintenance of the constituent machinery and components. With exacting standards and specifications for standby and emergency power, Cat® diesel generators for nuclear power plants meet this challenge.

  • Replacing aging nuclear power plant generators
