Decontamination at Angra Nuclear Power Plant

05/19/2008

NuVision Engineering (NVE) has been awarded a contract by Spanish utility Iberdrola, S.A., to perform sponge abrasive decontamination (S.A.D.) during the steam generator outage at Angra Nuclear Power Plant Unit 1 in Brazil in January 2009.

S.A.D. is a process in which high velocity compressed air is used to blast abrasive sponge pellets onto contaminated surfaces to remove embedded radioactive particles.

This award is the latest of over 30 decontamination jobs performed by NVE in the last 10 years.
