Title: Development of an Out-Year Planning Document for MPC&A Work at the RMTC as a Base for Future Center Activity and Sustainability

Abstract

The Material Protection Control and Accounting (MPC&A) Program has been working for several years with the Russian Methodological and Training Center (RMTC) to implement training and methodological support programs related to Material Control and Accounting (MC&A). This cooperation will continue throughout the next few years, as courses are updated/maintained, methodological support provided, and an MC&A equipment-testing center established. As this work continues, it is important that not only are the near-term, easily identifiable activities conducted, but also the long-range vision is considered and appropriate plans are prepared to ensure that the work is being addressed in the proper priority. In addition, it is also important that the RMTC understands and identifies the necessary resources to complete the work.

  • The Ozone Transport Assessment Group (OTAG) is a national workgroup formed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and the Environmental Council of States (ECOS) to assess and resolve issues relevant to ozone transport. To successfully perform photochemical modeling required the development of high quality base and future year emission inputs. The base year emission inventory data included a 1990 average summer day emission inventory of VOC, NO, and CO covering all stationary point and area sources throughout the entire OTAG modeling domain. Mobile emission estimates were also developed for the entire domain, based upon inputs collected from the States,more » USEPA, and the Lake Michigan Air Directors Consortium (LADCO). This inventory represented the integration of all emissions data supplied by the States with USEPA`s Regional Interim Emission Inventory (the Interim Inventory). The future year emission inventory data included growth and control factors required to project emissions to 2007 under a base (Base I) and more stringent control scenarios. The Base I control scenario included the integration of State-supplied growth and control factors with default growth and control factors which model CAA mandated controls, as well as controls designated in States` 15% Plans. Special methodologies were developed to project emissions from electric utilities and on-road mobile sources.« less
  • This session will examine a method developed by Federal and Contractor personnel at the Nevada Site Office (NSO) to improve the planning and execution of work activities utilizing an Activity Level Work Control process in response to Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board (DNFSB) Recommendation 2004-1, Oversight of Complex, High-Hazard Nuclear Operations. The process was initially developed during Fiscal Year (FY) 2007, and implementation is commencing during the fourth quarter of FY 2008. This process will significantly enhance the flexibility and the appropriate rigor in the performance of work activities.
  • ALARA database encompassing job-specific duration and man-rem plant specific information over three refueling outages represents an invaluable tool for the outage work planner and ALARA engineer. This paper describes dose-management trends emerging based on analysis of three refueling outages at Clinton Power Station. Conclusions reached based on hard data available from a relational database dose-tracking system is a valuable tool for planning of future outage work. The system`s ability to identify key problem areas during a refueling outage is improving as more outage comparative data becomes available. Trends over a three outage period are identified in this paper in themore » categories of number and type of radiation work permits implemented, duration of jobs, projected vs. actual dose rates in work areas, and accuracy of outage person-rem projection. The value of the database in projecting 1 and 5 year station person-rem estimates is discussed.« less
  • To date, the Department of Energy's (DOE) Material Protection, Control, and Accountancy (MPC and A) program has assisted in the implementation of operational site-wide MPC and A systems at several nuclear facilities in Russia. Eleven sites from the civilian sector have completed the site-wide installations and two have completed sub-site installations. By the end of 1999, several additional sites will have completed site-wide and sub-site system installations through DOE assistance. the effort at the completed sites has focused primarily on the design, integration, and installation of upgraded MPC and A systems. In most cases, little work has been performed tomore » ensure that the installed systems will be sustained. Because of concerns that the installed systems would not be operated in the future, DOE established a sustainability pilot program involving the 11 sites. The purpose of DOE's MPC and A Sustainability Program is to ensure that MPC and A upgrades installed at sites in Russia are effective and will continue to operate over the long term. The program mission is to work with sites where rapid upgrades have been completed to cultivate enduring and consistent MPC and A practices. The program attempts to assist the Russian sites to develop MPC and A organizations that will operate, maintain, and continue to improve the systems and procedures. Future assistance will strive to understand and incorporate culturally sensitive approaches so that the sites take ownership for all MPC and A matters. This paper describes the efforts of the sustainability program to date.« less
