Nuclear power requires experienced professionals who generate thorough, innovative solutions to meet your nuclear requirements — solutions that address day-to-day challenges and achieve safety, cost and production goals. To achieve these outcomes, you must have experience on your team. That's what we bring to you.
The nuclear experience of our professionals means we bring industry best practices to guide our recommendations. We are an extension of your team, resolving difficult tasks, maintaining schedules, and providing reliable, cost-effective and innovative results.
We’re ready to engineer solutions for you.
Experienced Project Delivery Team
Complex nuclear projects require a team of experienced professionals with in-plant experience on large nuclear projects as well as other large engineering, procurement and construction efforts — within the nuclear industry as well as megaprojects in nuclear and other industries. Our engineers, project managers, project controls, construction and consulting professionals deliver solutions that fit your project.
Our team has domestic and international experience providing these services for large nuclear plant completions and refurbishments, as well as experience investigating and providing solutions for a range of challenging projects. We work with your team under the contracting model you require, whether it be design-build/engineer-procure-construct (EPC), design-bid-build, owner’s engineer, program management, or other method.
Nuclear projects around the globe require the ability to understand and meet specific needs and expectations of the countries involved. Our nuclear professionals have experience at the largest nuclear projects underway in the U.S. and Canada, including the Ontario Power Generation Darlington and Pickering nuclear plants and the Bruce Power Nuclear Refurbishments. Our team also has international consulting experience in projects in Canada and Korea.
Partnerships & Quality Assurance
Burns & McDonnell is an engineering services provider for the STARS Alliance. This relationship was established in 2013 and continues today.
We have a fully implemented nuclear quality assurance (QA) program, meeting the requirements of:
- 10CFR Part 50, Appendix B
- 10CFR Part 21
- ANSI N45.2
- 10 CFR 72, Subpart G
Under our program, we have performed both safety-related and nonsafety-related designs. Our nuclear QA program is Nuclear Procurement Issues Committee (NUPIC) listed and has been audited. Audit reports are available on the NUPIC website.
Advanced Reactor Fleet Deployment
What’s New in Nuclear? Advancing Safety and Affordability
There is a broad menu of options available to begin bringing down carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions on a global scale. While many agree nuclear energy will (or should) be part of the solution, just how it is developed and deployed elicits a wide range of opinions. From cost and safety considerations to waste disposal, the issues that have dogged the nuclear industry for decades are still very much in play.
Three Innovative Reactor and Fuel Design Pathways Can Restart Nuclear Power
Burns & McDonnell
Advanced reactor technologies offer the potential to transform the nuclear power industry, providing safe, carbon-free electricity that addresses the plethora of challenges arising from decarbonization of power grids worldwide and energy security. Three quickly advancing options deserve careful consideration.
