EDF wanted to increase the power output of their nuclear power plants necessitating a redesign for their HP turbine. An intermediate turbine instead of a complete redesign would avoid decommissioning the entire plant and save EDF the cost of plant downtime. Renuda determined the feasibility of both new and intermediate turbines and the results showed it was possible to modify the turbine to its intermediate design to increase power output without reducing operating efficiency.
