MOHR Test and Measurement LLC (MOHR) signed an agreement with Utilities Service Alliance Inc., a national cooperative of electric utility companies that operate nuclear power stations, to supply spent fuel pool water level measurement instrumentation to its member stations including Columbia, Cook, Cooper, Fermi 2, Fort Calhoun, Hope Creek, Monticello, Prairie Island, Salem and Susquehanna.
MOHR will supply its EFP-IL SFPI system, comprised of the EFP-IL signal processor and SFP-1 level probe assembly, as a solution for U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Order EA-12-051 requiring installation of SFPI in all U.S. commercial nuclear power stations, issued in response to the Japan nuclear accident at Fukushima Daiichi in March 2011. Spent fuel pool monitoring helps prevent exposure and overheating of spent nuclear fuel rods following damage to the spent fuel pool by earthquake or other beyond design-basis event.
Utilities Service Alliance, Inc., headquartered in Overland Park, KS, is a non-stock, non-profit, membership cooperative established in 1996.
USA’s membership is comprised of eight of America’s leading electric utilities: American Electric Power, DTE Energy, Energy Northwest, Nebraska Public Power District, Omaha Public Power District, PPL, PSEG, and Xcel Energy. These utilities operate 14 nuclear power reactors located at 10 stations. Collectively, these stations generate 13 percent of our country’s nuclear electric power.
