About NuScale Power
NuScale Power, LLC develops small modular reactors (SMRs) that reinvent nuclear energy to create safer, more economical, carbon-free power to support global demand. A NuScale plant is built on NuScale Power Modules, each producing 50 megawatts of electricity (gross) with its own factory-built combined containment vessel and reactor vessel, and its own packaged turbine-generator set.
A power plant with 12 NuScale Power Modules can produce up to 600 MWe gross. The reactor coolant is driven by natural circulation and can be shut down safely with no operator action, no AC or DC power and no external water supply.
Content Manager allows NuScale to utilize a requirements-based implementation methodology as cited in NIMRA guides TG11/15/16/21-1998 to meet all retention, retrieval, destruction, revision control and other document and records management objectives. Productivity gains help reduce the time required to build SMRs and accelerate delivery of entire projects.
Micro Focus software services assisted with solution design and implementation, ensuring NuScale could deploy the NRC-compliant implementation methodology within an aggressive six-month schedule. NuScale estimates that without these services, the project could have taken up to 12 months longer. NuScale employed Micro Focus education services to maximize effective knowledge transfer and provide the strategic training required for user acceptance testing.
Dasher Technologies provided server installation services. Certifications that Dasher engineers are Micro Focus-trained for each type of hardware installation ensure all services meet stringent NuScale quality requirements.
Micro Focus solutions have enabled NuScale to successfully comply with NRC Regulatory Issues Summaries NIS 2000-18 for managing electronic records in licensed commercial nuclear plants. In addition to meeting these stringent guidelines, the company was able to complete its transition to the new solution in less than six months to ensure readiness for NRC on-site review.
Implementation of Content Manager moved NuScale away from a paper-based repository to an electronic records management system with dual storage (15TB at each of two locations) and sub-4-hour disaster recovery. The solution has also streamlined migration of legacy records from Microsoft SharePoint database, migrating more than 9TB and enabling rapid integration of new records including test files of up to 500GB.
Through NuScale’s use of Content Manger, enterprise data is now an asset, not a liability. The solution enables compliance with stringent regulatory requirements, introduction of new revenue streams and accelerated delivery of a long-term green energy source for the next generation.
