“We were delighted to be featured along with our partners AREVA and B&W in this national publication,” said CAER Executive Director Bob Bailey. “Our simulated digital control room is the centerpiece for our Center for Safe and Secure Nuclear Energy, and with the current switch from analog to digital instrumentation and control systems in U.S. nuclear plants, this truly puts our R&D center on the map.”
The article also highlighted AREVA's human factors testing and B&W's small modular reactor testing facility at CAER.
