Critical Power: FLEX Strategy

March 2016 was the 5th anniversary of the Fukushima nuclear disaster. In response to the Fukushima accident, the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) developed the Diverse and Flexible Coping Strategies (FLEX) to prepare for beyond-design-events at Nuclear Power Station in the US. To support the FLEX Strategies mandated by the NRC, PCTI has produced a Critical Power Trailer that houses a 400A, 125V 12-Pulse Battery Charger.

Will Plasma Chemical Technologies Spur a Nuclear Energy Boom?

In February 2014, the Federal government announced that a $6.5 billion loan would be given toward the construction of a nuclear power plant in Waynesboro, Georgia, marking the first time since 1996 that new nuclear reactors would be built.

This news was received with mixed reviews, as nuclear power is a controversial issue since Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear meltdown following the country’s devastating earthquake and tsunami. Since then, nuclear power has raised more concerns than before.
