STARTUP AND TESTING
One of BCP’s strongest technical areas comes from our vast experience in the development and implementation of initial test programs for nuclear power plants in the United States as well as Europe and Asia. BCP has directly participated in the successful construction completion, startup testing, operational readiness and commissioning of over 20 nuclear plants in the United States.  BCP is currently providing this expertise to Westinghouse as their primary consultant for developing and working on many of the aspects of the Initial Test Program for the AP1000 projects in China.

BCP has considerable experience in following projects from construction completion through initial test program completion and preparation for fuel loading, reactor startup testing, and full power commercial operation.  Areas of BCP expertise includes:

  • Development of staffing requirements for the operations, maintenance, technical support and other departments in the plant staff organization.
  • Integrating the plant organization into the Initial Test Program activities for training and support. Activity scheduling associated with preparing the plant for long-term commercial operation.
  • Training and development of the adequate expertise to operate, maintain the plant and provide technical support.
  • Programs to assure proper operation, maintenance and longevity of motor operated valves, air operated valves, check valves, pressure relief valves, safety valves, heat exchangers, snubbers, heating and ventilating equipment, and many other types of components and systems that are safety related to the plant.
  • Establishing a configuration management program and control process for processing the vast amount of information being developed and ultimately delivered for his control to the nuclear power plant owner by the engineering contractor.
