Medical Technologies, Inc. (SHINE), a Wisconsin-based company dedicated to being the world leader in the safe, clean, affordable production of medical isotopes, announced today that it has chosen Rock Creek Innovations, LLC to lead design and implementation of the instrumentation and control (I&C) protection systems for its medical isotope production facility in Janesville, Wisconsin.
With over 160 years of combined experience in architecting, designing, and implementing nuclear protection systems, Rock Creek Innovations is the inventor of the groundbreaking I&C protection system platform known as the Highly Integrated Protection System, or HIPS. The HIPS takes advantage of the best of both analog and digital control systems by combining the long-proven analog safety channel approach used by nuclear protection systems today with the comprehensive diagnostic and self-testing capabilities of digital logic. The HIPS platform has been approved by the U.S. NRC for use in safety-related applications in U.S. nuclear power plants.
“Rock Creek’s creative thinking and passion for partnership are what differentiates them from the traditional nuclear industry contractor,” said Greg Piefer, founder and CEO of SHINE. “The entrepreneurial, problem-solving culture that Gregg Clarkson brings to his organization is well-aligned with our needs.”
