EPRI: Nuclear Plant Performance Program Combined Users Group Meetings

Date: Wednesday 25 January 2023
Time: 5:30 PM
Location: Grand Hyatt Atlanta in Buckhead | 3300 Peachtree Rd | Atlanta, GA 30305 | USA

The Nuclear Plant Performance Program (NP3) Meeting week consists of three different users groups; Heat Exchanger Performance User Group (HXPUG), Plant Performance Enhancement Program (P2EP), and Service Water Assistance Program (SWAP). These user groups met jointly for the first time in 2019, again in 2020, and will do so again in 2023 with a similar format. Although these groups have historically met individually, the intention of combining the groups is to foster collaboration with individuals of related technical areas and plant performance responsibilities. The common meeting location affords members an economically effective opportunity to interact and participate with related user groups and promotes a broader technical focus for members.  The Heat Exchanger Performance User Group (HXPUG) Meeting is for nuclear industry personnel involved with performance and maintenance of heat exchangers.  The Plant Performance Enhancement (P2EP) Program is for thermal performance engineers to discuss research to improve the heat rate of nuclear power plants, thereby increasing unit average capacity and reducing plant operations and maintenance costs per kilowatt-hour.  The Service Water Assistance Program (SWAP) is for members to provide input for research and participate in discussions to increase service water knowledge and share plant operating experience. 

Benefits of In-person Attendance  Building a network of expert resources that can be contacted to answer questions on heat exchanger, thermal performance, and ultimate heat sink monitoring, operation, inspection, and maintenance related activities.  Gain knowledge of how other utilities operate, allowing you and your team to benchmark your own operating processes and see how other utilities address common challenges.  A combined vendor fair will be on Wednesday January 25 from 5:30PM - 7:30PM Eastern Time. Vendors will be permitted to staff the booths starting at 11:00AM January 25 through 12:00 PM January 26th Eastern.
