Exelon Limerick Station Update

Bernie’s Team (BT) members, Alex Hay (Project Manager) andDave Kern(Installation Lead), are currently providing project management and oversight for the transportation and installation of 19 HSM-Hs at Limerick Generating Station (LGS), scheduled to complete on December 14, 2012.


Limerick’s HSM project is responsible for erecting a single array of 19 HSM-Hs and corresponding temperature monitoring system (TMS).  BTs project team developed and awarded the installation contract to Hake Rigging Company with the assistance of Exelon’s Corporate Supply Category Management team.


To date, the project has successfully set 16 bases, 12 roofs, 10 back walls, and 8 roof vents. Installation activities are currently on schedule, on budget and injury free. The HSM project team has received numerous accolades from site and corporate leadership teams for human performance excellence and safe work practices.  Additional scope of work includes the receipt and inspection of 8 new 61BTH DSCs in preparation for LGSs 2013 Spent Fuel Loading Campaign (SFLC).


Limerick’s HSM installation project is Dave Kern’s fourth in a management or oversight role. Prior HSM installation projects include St. Lucie, Ginna, and Nine Mile Point. Nine Mile Point HSM project included onsite HSM fabrication, atypical for this technology. Dave’s knowledge and experience has been instrumental to the overall success of Limerick’s HSM Installation project.
