December 11, 2015 – UESI Sponsors NACE Nuclear Power Plant Coatings SymposiumThe NACE Nuclear Power Plant Coatings Symposium brings together industry personnel and coatings professionals to discuss important topics related to protective coatings and linings for commercial nuclear power facilities. The NACE symposium is co-located with the annual meeting of the EPRI Nuclear Utility Coatings Council and the ASTM D-33 Committee on Protective Coating and Lining Work for Power Generation Facilities. UESI is a proud sponsor of the event and recognizes the importance of this venue in helping nuclear power plants to address the various safety related coatings issues unique to this industry. http://nppcoatings.nace.org/technical-program.html
October 7, 2015 – Subaqueous/Sub bottom Cable RepairUESI recently performed a first of a kind underwater cable repair. The repair was unique in that it required a custom fabricated pressurized repair clamp be welded in place insitu. The repair location was five feet below the mudline and resting on bedrock. Excavation of the mud bottom as well the adjacent bedrock was required to provide access for the diver welders. Poor water clarity added to the degree of difficulty. Read More
