Summary

This documentation also includes the 345-kilovolt transformers and the Terry Turbine Building (HAER CT-185-E).
Significance: The Haddam Neck Nuclear Power Plant was one of the earliest commercial scale nuclear power stations in the United States, and was eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. Its function was to generate electricity using steam generated in the reactor. Equipment design was typical of contemporary choices in nuclear-fueled turbines and generators, and had turbine and condenser problems common to plants of this vintage.
