GCR Inc. Announces the March 10-11, 2014 NuclearIQ® Users Group and Industry Update Conference in New Orleans, LA

NEW ORLEANS, Feb. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- GCR Inc. announces the 2014 NuclearIQ® Users Group and Industry Update conference, to be held at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in New Orleans from March 10 through March 11, 2014.  Representatives from over 40 nuclear power stations in the US and Canada, representing two-thirds of the entire fleet, will attend to learn about emergent technologies, share information and collaborate with peers and industry leaders.  Historically focused on chemistry departments, NuclearIQ now serves teams from Groundwater, Radiation Protection, Emergency Services and other plant groups through data management solutions.

Industry leading partners will present technologies that support the conference theme – "Information Collection, Sharing and Collaboration".  GCR's NuclearIQ team and partners will jointly address the challenges of disconnected systems, how to connect, and how to enable automated data sharing to save time and reduce errors while increasing data visibility.  Representatives from the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), www.epri.com, will discuss the future of Smart Chemworks chemistry modeling tools.

Partners such as:

  • OSIsoft will demonstrate the interface between PI server and NuclearIQ, and discuss the efficiencies realized when these two systems pass data seamlessly.
  • Canberra will announce the general availability of a new automated interface between Gamma Spectroscopy counters, the underlying Apex database and NuclearIQ.
  • Ortec, a division of Ametek, will demonstrate a portable gamma spec machine and the automated update of NuclearIQ with sample results in real time.
  • Leidos, formerly of SAIC, with partners On-Ramp Network and SCT Engineering, will demonstrate a wireless, ultra-portable, radiation monitor in a compact battery-backed sensor housing that collects data over a secure wireless network, updating NuclearIQ database, reports, maps and the Control Room in real time.  This technology delivers twenty times the battery-backed EPZ coverage at 1/20 the cost, 24/7, over previous rad monitoring technologies and is the ideal solution in this post-Fukushima era.

Additionally, stations from the largest fleets in the US will demonstrate an automated electronic transfer of lab test results into NuclearIQ from external labs. This electronic transfer is a time saving routine that advances posting and report generation within the NuclearIQ software system, and eliminate technicians waiting to key-in data from hardcopy lab reports.

The NuclearIQ® Users Group and Industry Update conference will be the first time that these leadership technologies have been demonstrated in one location.  The conference will be a forum to demonstrate industry-based practices and technologies that extend the NuclearIQ software infrastructure to provide unprecedented return on investment for nuclear power stations.  As stations replace aging 1970's technology and seek to lower maintenance and operational costs, new technologies are available.

Representatives from nuclear power stations, partners, and regulators are all invited to attend this free conference.  For more information about NuclearIQ®, visit www.nuclearIQ.com.
