Home

Since 1981 ILD has provided engineering services to the nuclear and fossil power industries, petrochemical plants, paper mills, and other process industries. We have experienced personnel available for Technical Support/Systems Engineering and Design Engineering duties. We hold international patents on turbine testing equipment that has become the de facto standard for US nuclear power Terry Turbine testing without steam.  Our core Principal Engineering Staff has a combined commercial nuclear power experience in excess of 175 man-years.

ILD’s home office is located in Baton Rouge, LA.

Experience

Our project experience includes both pressurized (PWR) and boiling water (BWR) type reactors, and we have performed services for plants which were designed and built by nearly all possible combinations of reactor designer and architect / engineer in the United States. Our familiarity with operating nuclear power plants and the idiosyncrasies of specific plant designs is unmatched in the US. ILD has often been retained to independently verify technical product, as well as to integrate the many disparate evaluations required for a large project into a cohesive, technically accurate deliverable for the customer. Our recent experience includes eight such power uprate projects, including five BWR and three PWR plants.

We can provide experienced personnel for project management services, including scope, scheduling, and budget control for major outage scope including Reactor Recirculation Motor replacement, Reactor System Chemical Decontamination and Generator Rewind projects.

ILD is very familiar will all aspects of major turbine rotor replacement projects.  Bid spec preparation and reviews have been performed for several utilities.   We have the capability to develop the design change package, lead the turbine warranty testing efforts, and provide general oversight for the project.  Additionally, ILD often serves as the interface between the utility and the turbine supplier to ensure that all contract related testing matters are resolved.

We perform engineering and technical reviews for BOP, NSSS, and I&C design, including uprate feasibility studies. We have provided services for Appendix K Uprates, Extended Power Uprates (EPU), and online uprates.
