Nuclear Power Plant

Nuclear Power Plant Operation & Maintenance

Nuclear power is crucial in Pakistan’s power sector for providing clean and reliable electricity to millions. According to the report on Pakistan’s energy resources, nuclear power accounts for almost 8.8–9.5% of the total production. As only six nuclear power plants in Pakistan have been installed in Karachi and Chashma, maintenance is essential for meeting production needs.

Maintaining and operating these complex facilities requires specialized expertise and unwavering commitment. For safe operation, the National Corporation offers a proven track record of delivering exceptional services for nuclear plants. Additionally, it ensures smooth operation and optimal performance with its top-notch maintenance and refurbishment services.

Understanding the Powerhouse: Parts of a Nuclear Power Plant

Since maintenance requires critical knowledge about the parts of a nuclear power plant, we know the intricacies of the structure, system, and components. Maintaining the quality of service and safety, it knows every bit of the nuclear plants.

Here is the National Corporation approach for the parts of a nuclear plant and their function in energy production:

  • Reactor Core: It is the heart of the plant, where atomic fission generates heat.
  • Cooling System: The cooling system carries away heat from the reactor core to produce steam.
  • Turbine Generator: It converts steam energy into electricity.
  • Safety Systems: Multiple layers of protection are needed to ensure plant safety and environmental responsibility.

These four parts are the core of a nuclear plant. However, other minor components are also significant for smooth performance and energy production. At the National Corporation, our team of experts and top-notch service toolkits fully ensure each part’s maintenance.

Our Services

Since optimal performance of nuclear plants ensures the safety of the staff while generating electricity, the National Corporation knows the art of achieving it. From maintaining mechanical and electrical systems to automating the components and equipment, we focus on the plants to perform as planned. We keenly look at repairing, refurbishing, cleaning, and maintaining the parts of a nuclear power plant.

Moreover, we offer a comprehensive suite of services covering the entire lifecycle of nuclear plants. From maintenance and refurbishment to operations and technical support, here is a closer look at our services. 


For the constant and uninterrupted operation of nuclear plants, timely maintenance is most important. At the National Corporation, our expert team provides complete nuclear power plant maintenance services. Here are some of the types of maintenance services we offer:

  • Preventive maintenance includes regular inspections, testing, and calibration of nuclear plants to identify and address potential issues before they become problems.
  • Corrective maintenance: In case of any disruption or breakdown, we assist in repairing or resolving the issues. In the process, we minimize the downtown while ensuring the plant’s seamless operation.
  • Predictive maintenance: We use cutting-edge technologies like vibration analysis and thermography to anticipate maintenance needs and optimize scheduling.


To reduce the risks of mechanical failure, replacing and refurbishing the parts of nuclear plants is essential. Nuclear plants are susceptible and more liable to potential losses, so we provide effective refurbishing services for better performance. Here is what we do!

  • Equipment upgrades: We implement the most advanced technologies to improve plant efficiency, safety, and regulatory compliance. It also includes replacing the worn-out parts with new ones.
  • Life extension: If the parts require life extension instead of replacement, we use tools and strategies to expand the life of aging components and systems most cost-effectively. We ensure the reliability and performance of the system.
  • Modernization: With our advanced toolkit and control system, we enhance the plant’s performance and operator effectiveness. There is more efficiency and fewer chances of disruptions in energy production.
