World's Toughest Fixes Going Nuclear

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: a steam turbine upgrade in a nuclear power plant. The job: shut down the reactor, bring in an army of people and dismantle an enormous turbine, truck in a new 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.
