  • The relationship with the reactor vendor will be for the life of the NPP​
  • The turbine / generator vendor may also be for the life of the NPP, but not necessarily​
  • The operating organization will have a variety other vendors to support both steady-state operations as well as outages​

  • Longer-term contracts will typically save costs for the operating organization​
