UncaBuffalo -- those are awesome -- what a wonderful era at STP.  I will show John (we were both in Birchfield's crew at one time or another).

I have some old STP polaroids that I will scan in the next month or two and get them posted.  I'm sure the old HP's at STP will get a kick out of these -- Loved it.

Thanks man, now where's that karma button thing at :)

Anyone local that can tell me what it's like in the area?  I am a BWR-SRO and might be interested in sending a resume when they start hiring for 3&4 and I'm wondering if anyone can give me a rundown on the locale?  Schools, housing costs, etc...?  Is it possible to live on or near the water within reasonable cost?

What's the area like....... ::)

Currently STP holds the pole position for New Nuke Construction, which equates to about $10,000,000,000.00+ for construction costs over a 5 - 7 year period.   Then you can add the 5 - 7 outage budgets for the same time frame and gain the actual economic perspective for the area's future.  Besides the weather, not much will be the same when they start hiring for units 3 & 4! 

Just my humble opinion!

PS:  I never, (repeat "NEVER"), had a bad time in Texas..... 8)!

You've got that right.  I have a good friend who worked on the COL and they were first and have their ducks in a row more than most who are looking to build.  I was just looking for some info from locals on the area.  So far I have only talked to one person who actually lived and worked there in house and he hated it...... but then he was from Boston originally.

I worked at STP for about 8 years in the 1990's. Overall, I liked it there. Bay City has that small Texas town atmosphere. The big local grocery store is called H.E.B. I was told that it is named after the original owner whose last name was Butt and his first name was Harry. Like the previous post said, really good barbeque. People at the site were very good overall. Let me just say that in the nuclear worker world you could do ALOT worse.

Bay City is about an hours drive south of Houston. Houston has all the alure that a big city has bars, city scene, sports teams, etc. We used to take trips to Houston on aregular basis

Thanks!  That's the kind of info I was looking for.  I might have to take a trip down there this summer during an off week to check the area out, look at real estate, etc.....

I'm also looking to possibly relocate down that way since my father retired and moved to Lufkin.  I'm working in the Electrical Dept at a PWR now but have done many supporting trips for BWR outages.

I guess is STP a union plant?  I know Exelon is looking at building in Victoria County as well so there look to be some employment opportunities in the future.  I'd like to get in as soon as possible.

FYI, according to Wikipedia, Excelon just put the breaks on Victoria Station, due to the current economic situations... though spokesman said they were "not abondoning Victoria"...  July 2009

Let's hope we can get a turn around on this decision, and hopefully the ball will keep rollin'

With spot nat gas at $3.66/MMBtu, and on-peak NYMEX Oct 09 futures trading around 36-37 bucks per MWh for 2N-ERCOT Houston Zone electricity, Exelon may have figured it doesn't pencil out to proceed. Time will tell....

I'm not going to scald you with the usual answer, but it wouldn't really have taken much for you to find this on your own.

http://bartlettinc.sharestreet.net/outageinfo/southtexas/default.aspx

It's not as though there were a lot of choices.  Basically Entergy plants use DZ Atlantic, and everybody else uses Bartlett.  Just a thumbrule, mind you.  There are several exceptions.  Either way though, if you check with either one, you will know who has it and who doesn't.

BTW, anybody else find it a little off-putting that they consider techs "local" (and not eligible for per diem) if they live within 100 miles?  It's like they are daring people to die on the highway after work every night.

Actually, it is harder to find than it was.  Bartlett's web site is a lot more complicated than it used to be.  Atlantic's job listings are not really complete either.
There are backups at a lot of places too.  And Shaw, Westinghouse, etc. are hiring techs fro some of their projects as well.

Was kind of disappointed in STP this fall outage season. They were suppose to have a spring outage. Due to secondary side issues this outage was postponed. I was comfirmed for this outage and got stuck with one short outage for the spring. I had worked STP four other times and was happy working there. The last time I worked there in OCT 2012 they laid all contractors off 6 days before the end of the outage. WOW. It was a rough outage and I worked my rear off (literally). I comfirmed for spring and was happy to go back sore feet and all. Outage Postponed to fall. Do I have to comfirm again? Yes. Ok I will call early. I called. Sorry you won't be coming to STP this fall. Why? ............................. ........................  :( Well they are limiting the number of people they are hiring this fall.

 I will pick STP up again sometime. They pay well and I enjoy it there. However they lost a (Loyal) person. I got laid off early in the fall, ended up with only one short outage because I planned on STP also in the spring, and totally got screwed out of a fall season there. Left a bitter taste in my mouth. It wasn't anything I did I am confident in that. I worked hard and played nice. What more could they ask?
