Sargent & Lundy is actively supporting Westinghouse Electric Company on several AP1000 projects, providing engineering and site support for the base plant and station-specific designs. Our activities include the evaluation/analysis and design of containment access platforms and associated structural steel framing, as well as the auxiliary building concrete structures. Other key activities include the evaluation of structural modules for change impacts, along with qualification of electrical raceway supports and assessment of pipe rupture effects. Our code specialists have provided technical support to address ACI and AISC code compliance through compliance reviews and follow-up assistance to resolve any identified gaps. We are providing project management, scheduling, and engineering support at the Westinghouse office in Cranberry, Pa., and engineering support at the Vogtle site.
