Plant Life Extension (PLEX) and Plant Life Management (PLIM): A New lease of Life for the Nuclear Industry

Summary

Nuclear industry plays a vital role in global power generation. While the demand for nuclear power generation has been growing worldwide, addressing concerns about the aging nuclear plants are critical for the nuclear industry. The nuclear energy report from GlobalData, 'Plant Life Extension (PLEX) and Plant Life Management (PLIM): A New lease of Life for the Nuclear Industry' provides in-depth analysis of the nuclear power plants that are undergoing an extension of life. As the reemergence of nuclear industry in the global energy arena indicates a significant growth of nuclear power, understanding of the importance of PLEX and its role in sustaining the competitiveness of nuclear plants is vital. Life extension of nuclear plants provides several opportunities to the nuclear equipment and service providing companies to supply the necessary equipment and components for the successful implementation of PLEX.
