GSE Systems Delivers and Commissions Three New Full-Scope Simulators to Southern Nuclear
COLUMBIA, MD – August 12, 2019 – GSE Systems, Inc. (“GSE” or “the Company”) (Nasdaq: GVP), a leading provider of professional and technical engineering, staffing services, and simulation software to clients in the power and process industries, today announced that it has completed delivery and commissioning three additional full-scope simulators for Southern Nuclear’s new Operations Training Centers. These new simulators reflect Southern’s commitment to modernize, optimize and expand their fleet’s operator training program.
This Southern Nuclear project is the largest single nuclear simulator project in the US in the past 30 years and included three new replica simulators for the Alvin W. Vogtle Electric Generating Plant, Edwin I. Hatch Nuclear Plant and the Joseph M. Farley Nuclear Plant.
“We are proud of our longstanding relationship with Southern Nuclear,” states Kyle Loudermilk, president and chief executive officer of GSE. “It was an exciting project that called upon our capabilities in hardware and software engineering and design, along with manufacturing logistics and complex project management. We could not have succeeded without a close working relationship with the Southern Nuclear team, for which we are very grateful.”
These additional simulators will add flexible scheduling and increased capacity that can drive operator performance. The simulators will also offer more availability to each plant’s engineering and maintenance staff, who find the simulators useful for virtually commissioning plant changes, validating plant procedures, management certification, and a variety of other training activities. In addition, the simulators have been upgraded with some of GSE’s latest technology, including the new OpenSim 7.0 simulator operating system and enhanced containment modeling program and GSE’s PSA-HD program to train operators on beyond design basis events.
Southern Nuclear, a subsidiary of Southern Company, operates a total of six units for Alabama Power and Georgia Power.
