As nuclear power plants mature and are revitalized, it is essential that utilities work with a partner that has experience in trustworthy engineering modifications. This contract will be executed by the GSE Engineering, Design & Analysis team based out of Fort Worth, Texas. The select group is extremely well-disciplined in electrical/instrumentation and control (I&C) engineering safety and efficacy, with years of experience and a history of working with the utility.
