Nuclear Power Plant Improves Site Security with Blast Resistant Guard Booth
Date:2/1/2010

Energy Northwest, a public nuclear power provider at Washington State’s Columbia Generating Station, needed a reliable solution for securing their site's perimeter. To comply with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's mandates for enhanced security at nuclear power plants, they announced the purchase of high security permanent guard booths that include such features as bulletproof glass, comprehensive defensive armor, protective sheathing and machine-gun ports.

Faced with a number of pressing issues including operating costs, reliability, sustainability, regulation and safety, security was determined to be the most critical need confronting administrators of nuclear power plants. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) developed a number of mandates regarding enhanced security at nuclear power plants, power reactors, decommissioning reactors, independent spent fuel storage installations, research and test reactors, uranium conversion facilities, gaseous diffusion plants, fuel fabrication facilities, certain users of radioactive materials, and transporters of spent fuel and radioactive materials. The primary concern, common among them all, focused on enhancements to the secure perimeter and the screening of employees, vendors, and visitors as they accessed the site. A series of Advisories, Orders, and Regulatory Issue Summaries have been issued to further strengthen security at NRC-licensed facilities.
