Dominion Energy, Millstone Power Station, is currently seeking individuals to join the Measurement Uncertainty Recapture (MUR) and Generator Upgrade Project. The MUR project will improve the accuracy of instrumentation that will allow the unit to operate at a higher power level (power uprate). In conjunction with a power uprate there will be a Main Generator Upgrade Project. The Generator Upgrade Project will include, but is not limited to, a rotor replacement, stator rewind, exciter replacement, voltage regulator upgrade and other auxiliary improvements. The team will be developing/supporting documentation for design changes, engineering technical evaluations, License Amendment Request, and Final Safety Analysis Report updates.
This is approximately a three-year project. However, once this project is complete it is anticipated that the Engineers will be incorporated in the Engineering Department proper. The team consists of a Project Manager, Electrical Engineers, Mechanical Engineer, Civil/Structural Engineer, Instrumentation Engineer, Designer, and a Drafter. The individuals on this team will be a part of a self-sustaining, high performing, cross-functional team. This is a high visibility position that impacts the station greatly.
