Charlotte-based Babcock & Wilcox Nuclear Energy Inc. was awarded a contract from American Electric Power to provide steam generator services for the Donald C. Cook Nuclear Plant just north of Bridgman, Mich. The plant contains two units, one of which is outfitted with Babcock & Wilcox replacement recirculating-steam generators.

As part of this contract, Babcock & Wilcox Nuclear Energy will execute an inspection and cleaning campaign that includes eddy current testing, visual inspections and water lancing. The inspections and cleaning activities are conducted periodically to monitor and maintain the condition of the steam generators.
