NTS Nuclear Center of Excellence

Huntsville is home to NTS' Nuclear Center of Excellence, including newly merged services from the Acton, Massachusetts facility. NTS offers nuclear utilities and suppliers worldwide superior customer service in the provision of a full range of engineered services. Testing, equipment qualification, commercial grade dedication, engineering solutions, component supply and field services are provided under our NUPIC and NIAC audited 10CFR50 Appendix B quality program.

As part of our core competency, NTS focuses on the selection of new nuclear grade components, their qualification, and, if needed, their dedication for safety related applications. We currently offer qualified replacements for many electrical and mechanical safety-related components that are no longer available from the OEM.

NTS certifies equipment for Class 1E installation for mild or harsh environments to IEEE 323 and IEEE 344. These systems include instrumentation, digital recorders, batteries, gauges, motors, panels and chillers from manufacturers such as Bussman, Siemens, Yokogawa and GE. NTS can also provide engineering evaluations to determine the best potential replacement from over 200 manufacturers of nuclear grade equipment. With a focus on solving plant needs, NTS leads the industry in digital upgrades, MCC bucket replacements, motor rewinds, governor rebuilds, modifications to or design of replacement safety-related systems, and instrumentation panel and component design. All programs are conducted in accordance with 10CFR50 App. B and 10CFR21.
