Rancho Seco was a single unit, 913-MW electrical, Babcock & Wilcox design, nuclear power plant owned by the Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD). The plant is 25 miles southeast of Sacramento, California on 2,480 acres of ralling terrain. Commercial operation of this PWR began in 1975 and ceased in 1989, The NSSS, housed within a hardened containment building, consisted of two independent primary coolant loops (each containing two reactor coolant pumps and a steam generator), an electrically heated pressurizer, and connecting piping. Major structures included two cooling towers, reactor building, administration building, auxiliary building, training and records building, nuclear service electrical building, interim onsite (waste) storage building, and support buildings (security, warehouses, and an unfinished technical center). An ISFSI was added in 1995.
