3D Printing Keeps Nuclear Power Plant Running - DesignNews

While additive manufacturing is often lauded for its ability to create rapid prototypes to speed up the design process, or produce small batches of end user products, it has another compelling application: the manufacture of obsolete parts that would be too difficult or costly to create using traditional fabrication methods. Still, it’s one thing to print a replica of a knob or other non-critical part, it’s another to create parts that meet the most stringent industrial safety regulations. The Krško nuclear power plant in Slovenia became operational in 1981 and began producing commercial power in January of 1983. The plant, a two-loop pressurized light water reactor developed in cooperation with Westinghouse, has a capacity of 696 MW and provides electricity for 25 percent of Slovenia and 15 percent of Croatia (the countries share responsibility for waste disposal).
