A Steady Output of Heat Exchangers for Nuclear Power Plants from Holtec’s Power Plant Components Division (PPCD)

We are pleased to note, over the past two years, Holtec’s Power Plant Component Division (PPCD) has emerged as a prominent supplier of heat transfer equipment for Nuclear Power Plants. PPCD has designed, fabricated, and supplied numerous heat exchangers and other heat transfer equipment for Nuclear Power Plants based in the U.S. and overseas. Each piece of heat transfer equipment identified below was fabricated at Holtec’s Manufacturing Division (HMD) located in Turtle Creek, Pennsylvania. HMD is a 657,000 sq. feet state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, holding ASME stamps including Section VIII, Section III (Nuclear) and ISO certifications.

In addition, over the past three years, HMD’s punctuality in delivery of the heat transfer equipment, which includes several extremely large steam surface condensers and feedwater heaters has steadily improved, reaching nearly one hundred percent (100%) on-time delivery performance in 2012.

Annotated photos of some typical auxiliary heat exchangers for nuclear plants recently designed and supplied by PPCD are shown below:
