NuClEAR POwER INTERNATIONAl 2012

Dear Industry Colleagues,

As Program Committee Chairman, I want to personally invite you to NUCLEAR POWER International 2012

Conference and Exhibition. The conference and exhibition will take place Dec. 11-13, 2012 at the Orange

County Convention Center in Orland, Fla.

Our conference planning committee has built a dynamic set of sessions for attendees to learn about the

future of nuclear power. While the past year and a half has been “up-and-down,” the industry is moving forward

and the future of nuclear energy is optimistic.

The disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi plant in Japan has continued to make headlines over a year after the

accident. The global nuclear industry is learning, and implementing, lessons to ensure the safety of nuclear

power generation. Countries around the world have been completing safety checks and safety enhancements

at nuclear facilities. One session will provide an update on the Fukushima Daiichi plant and the outcomes for

utilities. Speakers will discuss lessons learned for utilities and new initiatives being implemented, such as the

Nuclear Energy Institute’s FLEX strategy.

In the midst of the safety enhancements and upgrades, new nuclear construction continues. Over 60 reactors

are being constructed across the globe, which will add to the 430-plus operating units that generate over 370

GW. In the U.S. alone, both Southern Co. and SCANA Corp. are building two Westinghouse AP1000 reactors at

their respective sites in Georgia and South Carolina. The Tennessee valley Authority is also completing Watts

Bar Unit 2, and has plans in place to complete Unit 1 at Bellefonte. Speakers from engineering firms, utilities

and government will update all attendees on the progress of these projects and the development of small

modular reactors.

Learn about emerging countries developing new energy programs with an emphasis on nuclear power

generation. A panel discussion will provide an overview of nuclear programs outside the U.S. with speakers

ranging from various organizations and countries, such as South Africa, United Arab Emirates, and the UK.

And if your company is not a qualified supplier for nuclear projects, NUCLEAR POWER International 2012 is

the place to be! A panel will provide you and your colleagues the steps your company needs to complete to

become a qualified supplier. Experiences from a buyer’s vantage point on the best ways to find and verify

suppliers, complete with a workshop for aspiring suppliers, will be presented.

Co-located again this year with POWER-GEN International, the largest power generation conference and

exhibition in the world, you will have the ability to network with over 20,000 individuals working in the power

generation field.

Registration includes access to all conference sessions, the exhibit floor, technical tours, pre-conference

workshops and an opening reception. Thank you for your support of NUCLEAR POWER International and our

teams looks forward to seeing you in Orlando!

Sincerely,

Brian Wheeler

Editor, Nuclear Power International magazine

POLK POWER STATION

monday, december 10, 2012

Time: 7:30 Am – 1:30 Pm (check-in at 7:00 Am at the Shuttle Bays

outside South Halls)

Fee: $75 (Approx. 1 ½-hour bus ride each way; transportation,

beverages and box lunch included)

Space is limited. Registration cut-off date: November 30, 2012

Location

Polk Power Station occupies 4,300 acres on State Road 37 in Polk County, Florida. It is about 60 miles southwest

of Orlando.

Description

A state-of-the-art integrated coal gasification combined-cycle (IGCC) power plant, Tampa Electric’s Polk Power

Station produces enough electricity to serve 75,000 homes. The 260 mW IGCC facility began commercial

operation in the fall of 1996. Construction on Polk Unit Two began in 1998 and Unit Three in 1999. These two

180 mW simple cycle combustion turbines use natural gas and distillate oil to generate electricity. Unit Two

and Unit Three started commercial operation in July 2000 and may 2002 respectively. Polk Units four and five,

two 160 mW units were completed in April 2007. The two new simple-cycle peaking units use natural gas to

generate electricity.

Technology

The 260 mW IGCC facility is a first-of-its-kind combination of two leading technologies, coal gasification and

combined-cycle. The plant combines coal with oxygen in the gasifier to produce the gaseous fuel. After processing,

the clean coal gas is used in the combustion turbine to produce electricity. Combined-cycle technology

increases efficiency because it reuses exhaust heat to produce more electricity.

Combined-cycle design consists of a combustion turbine, a heat recovery steam generator and a steam

turbine. The exhaust heat from the combustion turbine is recovered in the heat recovery steam generator to

produce steam. This steam then passes through a steam turbine to produce more electricity.

The plant is considered “zero process water discharge.” A brine concentration unit, which produces an effluent

that is reused in the process, handles all of the liquid waste. The combined-cycle technology requires much

less cooling water than conventional technology, and Tampa Electric was able to modify existing conventional

“mine cuts” to become the plant’s cooling reservoir.

With a march 2009 agreement, Tampa Electric established an innovative public-private project with the City of

Lakeland and the Southwest Florida Water management District to supply Polk Power Station with up to five

million gallons of treated reclaimed water daily that would otherwise be discharged into Tampa Bay via the

Alafia River. The 30-year agreement will benefit the environment by reducing wastewater release.

REQUIREMENTS: All attendees must bring a photo ID with them. Appropriate clothing includes: long pants,

closed-toed shoes, (sandals and sneakers not allowed); short-sleeved shirts are OK. Backpacks or bags may

be subject to search and may be left on the bus during the tour. Photography is not allowed (includes cameras,

cell phones and smart phones).

CPC 104 Safe Bolting: Principles and Practices – Lessons in Tower Erection

and Turbine Assembly

Date: Sunday, December 9, 2012 Time: 8:00 Am – 5:00 Pm

Room: S320H Cost: $500.00

Instructor

Jon Gans, Ph.D. Training and Safety manager, Hytorc Bolting Institute

Who Should Attend

This course is targeted to first-line mechanical operators and those who supervise their work, including on site safety managers and

contractor executives who are responsible for the quality of construction and maintenance. There are over 500 high strength bolts in

the typical wind tower, each of which plays a critical role in the function and efficiency of the assembled unit. Any failure or premature

loosening of any one of these fasteners could cascade into a failure of the entire system. This is the only OSHA approved and certificated

bolting course in the wind industry and it addresses the safety, quality and efficiency impacts of the assembly of towers and turbines. A

trained assembly and maintenance workforce is fundamental to achieving project quality and project longevity goals, not to mention the

all-important safety priorities of the industry.

Course Overview and Objective

The course teaches both the theory and the practical skills of industrial bolting with special emphasis on the structural and machine

connects found in wind towers and turbines. Its purpose is to not only instruct, but to set a standard for the basic level of competency

for the bolting craft as practiced in the wind energy industry. Upon the successful completion of this course, participants will be able to

understand the technology of bolted joints and the safety principles associated with tool selection and operation, workplace environment

and conditions, and bolting methods and procedures. The success of the efforts will be directly reflected in an improvement in 3 key areas:

I. Safety: Everyone’s primary concern must be with creating and maintaining an accident-free, environmentally-friendly workplace. Bolting

operations especially those in the wind industry are inherently dangerous, but by following established procedures the risks can be

managed, even if they may not be entirely eliminated. Nothing is as important as worker safety.

2. Quality: Quality refers to machinery and processes being optimized and working as designed. This most often means extending the

time between planned maintenance outages and extending the serviceable life of the unit.

3. Schedule (efficiency): This refers to the ability to quickly get into and out of the bolting work, whether it be initial assembly, repairs or

periodic maintenance. It means converting maintenance hours into productive generating hours by understanding how to solve the

problems and employing the proper tools to do it.

Course Highlights

Instruction modules include:

• Orientation and course goals

• Overview

• Principles of bolted joints

• The nuts and bolts of nuts and bolts

• Tightening with torque

• Tightening with tension

• Bolting patterns

• Keeping bolts tight

Room: S330A Cost: $500.00

Instructor

Kenneth A. Hart, Senior Consultant, AP Services, LLC

Who Should Attend

This course is focused at maintenance, Training, Outage managers, Component/System Engineers to provide insights into fundamentals

of Fluid Sealing and critical areas which are being overlooked or improperly applied.

Course Overview and Objective

Fluid seal leaks are continuing to have a major impact on nuclear power generation. During 2011, 4 stations shutdown as a direct result

of valve packing failures and a major nuclear fleet identified that over 75% of reworks from outages were a result of fluid sealing leaks.

The course covers fundamentals of good fluid sealing programs, provide insights into the most common causes and highlight key simple

steps to bring your station to “leak-free” operation.

After the laying the foundational fundamentals for achieving “leak-free” operation, the course will take attendees to the next level

Simple “In power plants, if you work on a valve or flange and you do not determine why it is leaking it will probably leak again!” The

impact of failing to uncover simple leak causes is costly. For major incidents we apply detailed, in-depth root cause evaluation processes.

Could we apply similar concepts in a simple, focused approach to leaks?

The second focus will provide the tools and concepts, (ie a cook book) to engage your organization with an awareness, to drive for “leakfree”

operation. An often overlooked part on the road to “leak-free” operation is “leak cause determination”. With recent “operating

experience” as a focus we explore the reasons behind crucial industry leaks and determine common threads. This review will lead us to

standard techniques/approaches which can be simply implemented at your station.

Course Highlights

• Evolution of Valve Packing from 70’s to the Future

• Components of a good packing system, more than just valve packing

• Increasing your margin to “leak-free” service

• Impact of valve packing on LLRT’s, AOV and MOV performance

• Procedure/program enhancements typically missing

• Basic of Gaskets, Stress and Sealing

• Steps to take for long term “leak-free” service

• Major Causes of Fluid Sealing Leaks What is your culture? Are leaks expected?

• Simple Questions to ask about Fluid Sealing Leaks

• Why bother with “leak cause determination”?

• Before you touch a leak, what do you see?

• Putting leak cause determination together - a simple process

Who Should Attend

Power generation owners and developers, project managers and anyone who has procurement and construction responsibilities in

connection with the development of power generation facilities for electric power companies.

Course Overview and Objective

Gas turbine orders are surging as utilities and developers increasing select gas instead of coal or other sources for baseload generation,

as well as the need for quick-start generation to level out variable renewable resources. This course will comprise an overview, from the

developer’s perspective, of two fundamental contracts for building a gas-fired or CCGT power plant: the Turbine Procurement Agreement

(TPA) and the balance of plant (BOP) Engineering, Procurement and Construction Agreement (EPC).

The course’s first half will focus on the typical TPA, outlining the key issues and risks inherent in these documents and focusing on how

to protect the developer’s interests, including in such areas as payment, security, late equipment delivery, performance guarantees, cure

periods and warranties. The second half will focus on the typical BOP EPC Agreement, examining how the three fundamentals of scope,

time and money are each addressed throughout the document’s inter-woven provisions, and how various key risks can impact these

fundamentals. In both cases, the presenters will delve into “best practices” and “critical nuances” in these agreements.

Finally, the presenters will explore strategic techniques for “weaving” the TPA and BOP EPC Agreement together so as to minimize gap

risks between the documents. Such an approach can help decrease a project’s construction risk, and help it to secure more favorable

terms in connection with project financing.
