The Pump Users Group (PUG) is a forum of nuclear utility and vendor representatives formed to develop and exchange technical information on the design, testing, and maintenance of power plant pumps to increase reliability, improve performance, and ensure safe and efficient operation.
The Pump Users Group is monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation to ensure the health and safety of our meeting participants, as well as our staff. We will also be monitoring the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) as the situation progresses.
As of this date, the event is currently scheduled to take place. If there are any changes to these plans, we will provide updates on this website. Please check back periodically.
