While safety is a crucial point in any of the power plants, in nuclear power generation danger and safety take on a whole new dimension. That’s why any of the maintenance materials used need to be rigorously checked and specially approved. And also suppliers of products need to be more than just a supplier and act as partners and solution providers.
It’s not just about finding the right product to prevent leaks from your pipe systems, to secure bolts on your reactor coolant pumps, lubricate or prevent seizing of your steam turbine parts. It’s about training your expert staff how and when to use them to make sure emergencies do not occur.
