At United Controls International (UCI), our aim is to provide an innovative solution for every nuclear generation need that a customer presents. UCI supports this goal as we provide an array of services, including design, fabrication, and integration, to both domestic and international clientele. Over the years, we have completed various projects, each scaled to the customer’s specific requirements, that have ranged from small component modifications to the incorporation of hundreds of control panels. Each project is completed in accordance with our detailed quality assurance program and all equipment can be properly dedicated and qualified to meet industry standards. Equipment can also be provided as Commercial Grade while still utilizing our standard practices and processes to ensure a quality product is delivered.
UCI’s process for design, fabrication, and integration of projects combine efficiency with quality. Whether starting from a list of application requirements or preliminary drawings,
we work with our customers through every step of the process to ensure the process runs smoothly and the final product meets their needs. Our team’s schedule remains flexible which enables us to provide quick turnaround times for equipment.
UCI has experience certifying to UL, ETL, CSA, and CE standards.
Below are a few examples of past projects completed by UCI. Please reach out and contact us today to see how our team can help fulfill your nuclear needs.
Turbine Driven Pump Control CabinetThe Turbine Driven Pump Control Cabinets pictured below were designed, fabricated, and integrated by UCI with three different control lay-outs. They were seismically qualified to IEEE-344-75/87(R93)/2003 and environmentally qualified to IEEE323-74/83(R96)/2004. The table below details the seismic and environmental qualification conditions.

Power Distribution Carts
Based on a customer’s specification, the Power Distribution Carts below were designed, fabricated, and integrated by UCI in seven different variations. These non-safety related panels are rated for 600VAC, 600A three phase power distribution and are CSA Certified.
Wall Mounted Terminal Box, NEMA 4X
The Wall Mounted Terminal Boxes below were designed, fabricated, and integrated by UCI. These wall mounted panels were designed to isolate different circuits within a Safety Related Class 1E environment. They were seismically qualified to IEEE 344-75/87(R93)/2003 and environmentally qualified to IEEE 323-74/83(R96)/2004. Additionally, they meet the requirements of NEMA 4X and are CE certified. The table below details the seismic and environmental qualification conditions.
