The article presents information on a Steam Generators (SG) Replacement Oversight Program undertaken by the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station (PVNGS), which is owned and operated by the Arizona Public Service (APS). PVNGS replaced the first of their steam generators in Unit 2 during the fall of 2003. As part of the replacement, a power uprate of 3% was also implemented. The design and engineering for the replacement and power uprate started sometime around late 1998. Bechtel Power Corp. was selected as the Installation Services Contractor for the program.
