Given the increasing demand for electricity world wide, Insight Technical Solutions has for many years provided individuals to help and support the control systems found in these operations. While many other firms might consider power plant operations to be some manner of cookie cutter operations with copycat control solutions, we maintain that each client’s site offers specific challenges which can best be addressed by specific skills and those trained to “work the problem”. Further, in providing someone face to face, any changes made are made expeditiously without a lag and potential loss of time going back and forth to the vendor’s home office. And since Insight personnel are focused on getting the job done right, there’s no scramble to leave the client as many turnkey operations will do.


U.S. Approves New Nuclear Reactors in

South Carolina



Federal regulators approved power company Scana Corp.’s proposal to build two nuclear reactors with a partner in South Carolina at a cost of some $11 billion, the second such approval in two months after a drought that lasted more than 30 years.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission voted 4-1 Friday to green-light construction over a dissent from Chairman Gregory Jaczko, who said the commission should have required compliance with any changes the agency adopts in light of Japan’s 2011 nuclear accident.

The two reactors are to be built by Scana unit South Carolina Electric & Gas and state-owned utility Santee Cooper.
