From drones to virtual reality, workers are finding creative ways to operate our nuclear fleet even more efficiently. Here are a few examples of how technology is transforming the way we work.
We use technology daily to make life easier and more efficient. We use it to order food or coffee, ask questions and get directions. And, at our nuclear plants, we are using indoor drones in a similar way.
Just as a homeowner might replace an old air conditioner or update a kitchen, our workers continuously install new equipment and implement new technology at our nuclear plants.
