theenergynet on 2010-01-18"The Shaw Power Group has won a contract to study the feasibility of upgrading a 2,155-megwatt nuclear plant in Michigan to a capacity of more than 2,450 megawatts.
Such nuclear upgrades are called “uprates” in the industry. Last week, executives of the power group’s parent, The Shaw Group, told analysts that they were aggressively pursuing uprate business.
CEO Jim Bernhard Jr. said about 37 of the 104 commercial nuclear reactors in the United States have been uprated. Shaw performd about half of those, and he said the remaining 67 units represented a potential market of $25 billion in contracts."
