Diablo Canyon Power Plant, in operation since 1985, uses two Westinghouse Pressurized Water Reactor units to produce 18,000 gigawatt-hours of electricity.  PG&E retained SGH to support the re-evaluation of their Long Term Seismic Program (LTSP) for Diablo Canyon, which is situated in a high-seismic hazard zone on the central coast of California.  The re-evaluation is driven by PG&E’s commitment to periodically revisit the LTSP and to address the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s industry-wide request for information in response to the 2011 Fukushima accident.
