Palo Verde Nuclear Plant New Engines

3 posts in this topic

I saw 2 new Rosenbauer engines yesterday in Goodyear for the Palo Verde Nuclear Plant. They were marked as E353 and E354. I didn't know they had more than 1 engine there. I knew of the Rosenbauer engine, ladder, and ARFF truck. Nice fleet they have out there.

All their apparatus are Rosenbauers, after a failure in some pumps few years ago, plant bought all those rigs at once.  3 engines, ladder, and foam unit.  The units serve as a third or fourth back up system to keep rods cool if needed.  Pretty amazing place to see it work.

That's is correct after Fukushima during the japan tsunami pangs received 3 engines, raffle, and ladder truck along with additional equipment to keep things cooled should they become isolated during a disaster.
