Susquehanna Nuclear Receives Top Innovative Practice Award from Nuclear Energy Institute


Berwick, Columbia County, PA -- Susquehanna Steam Electric Station (SSES) was recently recognized by the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) for an innovation that helped improve the reliability and efficiency of our plant, so it can keep generating clean energy 24/7. 


Representatives from SSES were presented with a Top Innovative Practice (TIP) Award at NEI’s annual Nuclear Energy Assembly (NEA) event held last week in Washington, D.C.

According to NEI they, “present TIP Awards to recognize the most remarkable efforts aimed at making the current fleet more efficient, reliable and cost-competitive.  The Awards highlight new solutions that teams at nuclear energy companies are using to drive the industry forward.”  SSES was one of 10 winners, out of 85 total submissions. 


SSES’ use of 3D printing technology to create solutions for obsolete parts in-house earned it a TIP Award.
