Monticello Nuclear Generating Plant

Project Location: Monticello, MN Office

Owner: Xcel Energy

Contractor: Xcel Energy

During the initial construction of this single-unit nuclear plant, API was the chosen contractor to install the insulation, lagging, and pipe jacketing on all piping, vessels, and the steam generator from 1968 to 1971. Since the single-unit boiling water reactor came on-line in June 1971, API has performed 24 Refueling Outages and the maintenance at this plant for Xcel Energy.

Currently, API is working with Xcel Energy and the Monticello team to assist in the design of a 100-megawatt upgrade planned for the reactor in the coming years.
