Nuclear Power Plant

Protect Sites from Intrusions and Avoid Liability

Nuclear power plants are one of the most effective ways to produce electricity. The process starts with heat from fission in nuclear rods, which then creates steam that drives large turbines and generates power. The United States is home to 54 nuclear reactors, with greater than 50% of them having two or three reactors. Since the 1990s, nuclear power plants have supplied about 20% of the annual U.S electrical needs.

The threat to our nation's critical energy facilities is one of America's most urgent national security concerns. Theft, vandalism or terrorist activity could result in nuclear terrorism or cyber-espionage.

Physical Security Measures

Security measures at nuclear plants include the following. The security measures result from agreements between the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the North American Aerospace Defense Command, and help support the protection of our critical infrastructures.

  • perimeter security protection
  • security personnel and management
  • perimeter security monitoring and surveillance
  • intrusion detection facilities
  • emergency preparedness and procedures
