Mexico's Laguna Verde nuclear power plant integrated its various systems, making fun use of the existing universe of signals and engineering. This article describes the plant's integrated information system. The development of this system enabled Laguna Verde to fully use the already existing universe of signals and its related engineering during all plant conditions, namely, start up, normal operation, transient analysis, and emergency operation. Integrated systems offer many advantages over segregated systems, and this experience should benefit similar development efforts in other electric power utilities, not only for nuclear but also for other types of generating plants.<>
