WHAT WE DID
B&D Industries was the sole electrical and IT contractor for the installation of all Plant Control Systems (PCS) at URENCO USA. This system monitors all important operational and control circuitry for all of the enrichment processes running throughout the plant. It also consolidates the key detection and control functions and brings them back to the Control Center Complex where technicians monitor plant operations on a 24 hour basis.
The system architecture and operating software are the products of Croon Industrial Systems (Netherlands). B&D was subcontracted to Croon IS to perform the electrical and fiber optic installations site wide. Employees working on this system must qualify for higher NRC access credentials as they work in the most secure locations on site. They also install NRC classified facilities. To date, B&D has completed the installations of Plant Control Systems in the Separations Building Modules 1001, 1002, and Extensions, the Security and Technical Services Buildings, and the Cylinder Receipt and Dispatch Building. Installations are currently in progress in the Separations Building Modules 1003 and 1004 to integrate the plant expansion areas into the existing Plant Controls System.
