The Virtual Nuclear Tourist !!! Nuclear Power Plants Around the World

Control Board - Vertical Panels and Benchboard

Many Russian-designed plant control rooms use a benchboard that is in front of the tall vertical panels. Frequently used equipment control switches are usually mounted on the benchboard (where the operator is standing). The back panels contain indicators, recorders, and controls for less frequently operated equipment.

This design is used in a number of plants in the United States and Europe.
