Seabrook Nuclear Power Plant

Seabrook, NH, USA

Description:
Seabrook is a 1,160-megawatt (net) pressurized-water nuclear reactor that provides enough electricity for about 1,000,000 homes. Located two miles inland from the New Hampshire coast, the plant uses water that is carried from the ocean to the plant via two three-mile-long underground tunnels.

Products Used:
PENETRON, PENECRETE and PENEPLUG. The underground tunnels, together with the plant foundations, underground facilities and all protective spillways were treated with the PENETRON System. In addition to the waterproofing and chemical resistance that protects the concrete, an additional benefit is a significant reduction in gamma radiation in case of an accident.
