Traveling Water Screens Replacement

Project Type

Project Description

Underwater Construction Corporation (UCC) successfully completed another Traveling Water Screen (TWS) project at a Southeast Nuclear Power Plant. UCC performed the removal and replacement of the six original TWS’s that were installed in the 1970’s. After removal the pits were cleaned and the old grout removed from under the screens.

The first three TWS’s were shipped and installed together and the remainder were replaced in sections. This project took place during times of lower water temperature and performed while the units were on-line. UCC worked two crews diligently around the clock with zero safety incidents to complete the project on time and on budget.
