NWR Supports Nuclear Energy with 2008 Sponsorship Campaign

From Newman Wachs Racing:
ELKHART LAKE, Wis. - The Champ Car Atlantic series comes to a close this weekend as the Grand Prix at Road America concludes this year for the Atlantic division, at picturesque Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.

Not so for Newman Wachs Racing Team - - -

The NWR is happy to launch their 2008 Season Program aptly titled "NUCLEAR CLEAN AIR ENERGY" based on NEI's current campaign statement.

The Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI)'s objective is to ensure formation of public policy to promote the beneficial uses of nuclear energy and technologies, NEI will encourage a collection of public and private organizations united under the promotion of the technological advancement of nuclear power to aid in additional support.

Along with the promotional message to educate the public in all possible aspects of this energy resource, comes the use of the motorsports arena to transmit a positive message to aid recruiting efforts to college and university students on becoming the nuclear science engineers of tomorrow.

After the most recent statement released regarding Paul Newman's support of the Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant as an important source providing electricity to millions of New Yorkers, NWR advanced it's marketing efforts into the mainstream of the nuclear community.

This weekend, NWR's guests include an impressive representation of the following nuclear companies:

· Entergy, who this year was named to Forbes list of America's Most Trustworthy Companies, and was once named by BusinessWeek the Global Power Company of the Year.
· Exelon, who operates the largest nuclear fleet in the US, the third largest in the world.
· Southern Company, one of the fastest growing public power holding in the US.
· Excel Services, whose focus is the resolution of technical, safety, and regulatory issues in nuclear facility operations.
· Sargent & Lundy a major nuclear engineer- constructor.

The goal of the Newman Wachs Racing team, as well as its parent sponsors, The Wachs Companies, is to educate and promote the clean, safe use of nuclear power in the US and abroad. NWR, a racing organization in support of cutting edge technology and the value of further testing and research, shares the vision and dedication to success that embodies the "NUCLEAR CLEAN AIR ENERGY" collective.
Great news. We've been talking to the Newman Wachs team for some time now, and it's great to see this finally happening.

Making Clouds for a Living

Donell Banks works at Southern Nuclear’s Plant Vogtle units 3 and 4 as a shift supervisor in Operations, but is in the process of transitioning to his newly appointed role as the daily work controls manager. He has been in the nuclear energy industry for about 11 years.

I love what I do because I have the unique opportunity to help shape the direction and influence the culture for the future of nuclear power in the United States. Every single day presents a new challenge, but I wouldn't have it any other way. As a shift supervisor, I was primarily responsible for managing the development of procedures and programs to support operation of the first new nuclear units in the United States in more than 30 years. As the daily work controls manager, I will be responsible for oversight of the execution and scheduling of daily work to ensure organizational readiness to operate the new units.

I envision a nuclear energy industry that leverages the technology of today to improve efficiency…

Why America Needs the MOX Facility

If Isaiah had been a nuclear engineer, he’d have loved this project. And the Trump Administration should too, despite the proposal to eliminate it in the FY 2018 budget.

The project is a massive factory near Aiken, S.C., that will take plutonium from the government’s arsenal and turn it into fuel for civilian power reactors. The plutonium, made by the United States during the Cold War in a competition with the Soviet Union, is now surplus, and the United States and the Russian Federation jointly agreed to reduce their stocks, to reduce the chance of its use in weapons. Over two thousand construction workers, technicians and engineers are at work to enable the transformation.

Carrying Isaiah’s “swords into plowshares” vision into the nuclear field did not originate with plutonium. In 1993, the United States and Russia began a 20-year program to take weapons-grade uranium out of the Russian inventory, dilute it to levels appropriate for civilian power plants, and then use it to produce…

Nuclear: Energy for All Political Seasons

The electoral college will soon confirm a surprise election result, Donald Trump. However, in the electricity world, there are fewer surprises – physics and economics will continue to apply, and Republicans and Democrats are going to find a lot to like about nuclear energy over the next four years.

In a Trump administration, the carbon conversation is going to be less prominent. But the nuclear value proposition is still there. We bring steady jobs to rural areas, including in the Rust Belt, which put Donald Trump in office. Nuclear plants keep the surrounding communities vibrant.

We hold down electricity costs for the whole economy. We provide energy diversity, reducing the risk of disruption. We are a critical part of America’s industrial infrastructure, and the importance of infrastructure is something that President-Elect Trump has stressed.

One of our infrastructure challenges is natural gas pipelines, which have gotten more congested as extremely low gas prices have pulled m…
