Summary
In this episode of World's Toughest Fixes, master rigger Sean Riley takes on a major challenge. Before entering the radiological control zone and the next tough fix, Riley puts on a full suit of protective clothing and gets his daily "rad check." He's going to need to keep a close eye on the Geiger counter for this radioactive gig: an impressive steam turbine upgrade in a nuclear power plant. The job will require this technological wizard to fully shut down the reactor, bring in a determined team of technicians, and then dismantle an enormous turbine. Then, they'll have to truck in a newer and more technologically advanced turbine with greater efficiency, put it all back together again, and voila: create even more electricity for the grid and our growing energy demand. But can they do it all without getting irradiated? A National Geographic Production
