AREVA and the Michael Baker Corporation have together been chosen as a finalist for the ‘Engineering Project of the Year’ in the Platts Global Energy Awards, an annual program recognizing exemplary industry leadership. The 2010 finalists, selected from well over 200 nominations, were announced by program host Platts, the leading global provider of energy information.
Established in 1999 and widely recognized as the “Oscars” of the energy industry, Platts Global Energy Awards highlight corporate and individual innovation, leadership, and superior performance in 17 categories spanning the entire energy complex.
In September 2009, AREVA delivered two 510-ton steam generators to Exelon’s Three Mile Island Nuclear Generating Plant from AREVA’s heavy component factory in Chalon-St. Marcel, France. The historic transport progressed along a one-of-a-kind, 75-mile course through parts of Maryland and Pennsylvania and required extensive engineering solutions, public communications and mounting crowd control.
“This was the most challenging large-component delivery in AREVA’s history and the largest ‘Superload’ ever transported in Maryland and Pennsylvania,” said George Beam, AREVA’s Sr. VP, Installed Base Business America. “We are extremely proud of the AREVA and Baker teams.”
The project has been recognized for excellence in engineering and community relations by the American Council of Engineering Companies and the Nuclear Energy Institute respectively. AREVA Principal Project Manager Sue Coleman was recently recognized for her work and awarded the American Nuclear Society’s Mary Jane Oestmann Professional Women’s Achievement Award.
“We congratulate our finalists and look forward to spotlighting their accomplishments and all others when we unveil the Global Energy Awards winners in December,” said Larry Neal, president of Platts.
