Shippingport station decommissioning project start of physical decommissioning
Shippingport station decommissioning project start of physical decommissioning The Shippingport Atomic Power Station (SAPS) consists of the nuclear steam supply system and associated radioactive waste processing systems, which are owned by the United States Department of Energy (DOE), and the turbine-generator and balance of plant, which is owned by the Duquesne Light Company. The station is located at Shippingport, Pennsylvania on seven acres of land leased by DOE from Duquesne Light Company. The Shippingport Station Decommissioning Project (SSDP) is being performed under contract to the DOE by the General Electric Company and its integrated subcontractor, Morrison-Knudsen Company, as the Decommissioning Operations Contractor (DOC). This paper describes the current status of the physical decommissioning work, which started September 1985. The preparations required to start a major decommissioning work effort in a safe and cost effective manner are discussed including the development of integrated detailed schedules, manpower and cost estimates, and implementation of a cost/schedule control system. The detailed plan required to ensure that people, property, and procedures are ready in sufficient time to support the start of physical decommissioning is also discussed. The total estimated cost of the Shippingport Station Decommissioning Project should be $98.3 M, with the Project scheduled for completion in April 1990. As the decommissioning of more »
