GSE Systems will design and build Westinghouse AP1000TM nuclear power plant simulator models for SCANA Corporation's VC Summer Plant site in South Carolina, US.

Last year, GSE signed a contract to build simulation models to assist Westinghouse with the AP1000 design finalisation.

The work formed the basis for the domestic AP1000 plant simulator designs.

With the new award, the firm will develop simulator models specific to the unique characteristics of the V.C. Summer plant site.

Apart from SCANA and Southern Company, 11 other US firms have selected the AP1000 as the basis for their planned new nuclear plant construction.
