Caption: Nuclear power station construction. Worker using a tape measure to check the dimensions of a circular pipe during the construction of part of a steam generator for a nuclear power plant. This is the upper end of the steam generator, which is a large structure (over 20 metres in height) used in pressurized water reactors (PWRs). The circular pipe provides water (from red-capped vents) to be boiled by the tubing bundle (not seen). The tubing bundle contains pressurized water heated by the nuclear reactor. The steam exits through the large vents, and is used to drive turbines to generate electricity. Photographed at the Framatome ANP facility at Chalon/Saint Marcel, France.
