Offshore Intake Screen

Nuclear Power Plant - Two Rivers, WI

At the Two Rivers, WI Nuclear Power Plant, the submerged offshore HCS intake screen provides cooling water for the power plant. The intake is 30 feet in diameter and several feet. below the surface of water. The intake screen was fabricated with HDPE blades at six-inch clear spacing.

The HCS trash racks were mounted in a pultruded FRP frame which was attached to the existing steel support structure.

The racks have now been in service for many years and are performing well. The racks have not experienced any fouling from marine growth. Ice and wave action have also not been a problem.
