The Nuclear Regulatory Commission issued a directive in response to lessons learned from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear incident in 2011. S.T.E.P.S. is TPC Wire & Cable Corp.’s new program to support the Flex/Fukushima strategy and provide turnkey emergency power solutions with fully assembled plug and play cable assemblies and custom containers for nuclear facilities.

TPC Wire & Cable Corp. has recently developed a program to support the nuclear Industry in their Flex/Fukushima strategies. The program is called S.T.E.P.S., which is an acronym for Super-Trex® Emergency Power Solutions. Emergency power is a critical component of an emergency preparedness plan. TPC can design a custom solution for a nuclear facility that is turn key and easily deployable by most employees and meets the “beyond design” needs.

Trained TPC specialists will work with nuclear facility customers in choosing the proper cable, connectors and container for their facility’s plan. The program is very flexible to the customer’s needs and is able to meet the “plug and play” feature that nuclear facilities are looking for to make their solutions quickly deployable in a catastrophic event.

“When I heard about the Flex/Fukushima directive from the NRC, I knew TPC could offer their expertise in temporary power in helping solve this problem. We have the cable; the “plug and play” connectors and can suggest a custom container to meet specific objectives of the facility. For instance, we can outfit a container with a mounted reel rack with power cable, lighted extension cords and a generator,” commented Scott Henderly, Lead Flex/Fukushima Specialist.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s deadline for licensee plans and schedules is February 28, 2013.

TPC’s long-lasting, dependable wire and cable products solve the most difficult application problems in the harshest environments resulting in lower overall costs and increased production time. TPC outperforms and outlasts ordinary cable 10:1.
