ENERCON is a leader in the nuclear power industry with implementing Mitigation Strategies for Beyond-Design-Basis External Events (BDBEE). ENERCON's highly experienced design, safety analysis, and licensing staff, and extensive knowledge of plant operations allows ENERCON to provides unique support in addressing the complicated issues associated with addressing issues from the Fukushima accident in Japan in 2011. These capabilities include understanding of site-specific systems, processes, and procedures, and the ability to provide expertise for interpreting and applying regulatory requirements and recommendations; and determining essential ingredients for implementation of FLEX. The FLEX approach is designed to apply to a wide range of severe natural phenomena-including earthquakes and floods. FLEX allows ENERCON to realize greater safety benefits for our clients in a shorter period of time and is an appropriate strategy for industry and regulator to pursue.
ENERCON continues to augment its FLEX capabilities by participating in related industry conferences, attending U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission public meetings, monitoring international response including stress tests completed at international nuclear plants, and maintaining close relationships with industry leaders. Additionally, because of ENERCON's international, multi-utility involvement with FLEX implementation, ENERCON is able to utilize its experience to help the industry resolve some of the challenging issues presented by the requirements to cope with a BDBEE. ENERCON maintains a talented licensing, engineering and analysis staff that can provide valuable FLEX resources for its clients.
ENERCON has been providing cost-effective safety solutions to the U.S. and international nuclear fleets for 30 years and recently have led industry initiatives in the completion of Seismic Evaluations, Tsunami Hazard Assessments, External Floods Hazard Analyses, Station Blackout Studies and Severe Accident Electrical and Cooling Water Availability Analyses as a result of the Japanese Fukushima accident.
