Bethesda, MD – Platts 6th Nuclear Energy Conference – February 17, 2010. Coreworx Inc., a subsidiary of Acorn Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACFN), announced today the Coreworx Project Information Control Solution for the Nuclear Power industry. Coreworx is globally recognized as the leading provider of project execution and information control software used by industry leaders to manage major capital project execution risk.
Drawing on its years of expertise in providing software for complex capital projects, the Coreworx Nuclear Industry Solution delivers best-in-class document, design and configuration control work processes for the engineering, construction and commissioning of nuclear-regulated facilities, and the refurbishing of existing nuclear power plants.

The specific demands of nuclear mega projects have been incorporated in a version of our industry leading Project Information Control solution that is purpose-built for the unique needs and rigorous regulatory environment in the Nuclear Power industry.
The Nuclear power industry is in a resurgence, evidenced by the U.S. Government’s pledge of up to $48 Billion in loan guarantees for nuclear power projects, as well as Asia and Europe announcing a significant number of new nuclear plant construction projects. Project Information Control will be a critical success factor with every nuclear mega project, where uncompromised safety, time to first power and cost control are critical risk factors to manage.

“Building a nuclear solution is a natural and exciting progression of our Project Information Control platform” said Ray Simonson, Coreworx CEO “The close partnership with our industry leading customers, has given us unique insight into the challenges, risks and regulatory obligations in the nuclear power industry. It is very gratifying to me as CEO when our customers and prospects tell us that we really understand their daily challenges in managing the millions of pieces of project information generated for a single nuclear power generating site”.
