Every minute, hour, or day that a generating asset comes offline, whether planned or unplanned, power companies can lose millions in operating revenue. To keep plants performing and profitable, outages must become shorter and less frequent, equipment cannot fail, and operations must become safer, smarter, and more streamlined.
At Tri Tool, we understand urgency and excel in the unexpected. For over 45 years, we have partnered with the country’s largest power producers to provide specialty power plant maintenance, power generation machining tools and industrial outage services under increasingly shorter timelines, tighter tolerances, and harsher operating conditions.
As an Original Equipment Manufacturer, we offer ready-access to a wide range of tools and can quickly develop custom engineered solutions to meet your precise project requirements for machining, fabrication, and pipe and tube welding at oil and gas facilities, nuclear power plants, hydroelectric power plants, pulp and paper mills and pipeline applications. With top-quality equipment and a national network of highly skilled technicians, we are always available to help you get the job done faster, saving you time and money.
Faced with an emergent need to replace a reactor coolant system primary check valve at the Sequoyah Nuclear Plant, the Tennessee Valley Authority turns to Tri Tool to deliver quality on an expedited time frame.
During a routine outage at the Sequoyah Nuclear Plant—a nuclear power plant owned by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) that generates enough power for 1.3 million homes each day—plant personnel unexpectedly found that a Reactor Coolant System (RCS) primary check valve needed to be replaced. However, the valve was located in a very congested area that required special considerations due to various radiological conditions.
Find out how Tri Tool mobilized a crew of pipefitters, machinists, and welders within 24 hours to execute a “like-for-like” replacement of the valve with zero safety or performance issues.
