Title: Environmental Qualification at Savannah River Site

Abstract

The objective of Environmental Qualification (EQ) is to demonstrate that equipment essential to the mitigation of consequences from, and monitoring of plant conditions following Design Basis Accidents (DBAs) will operate as intended under normal/abnormal and accident environmental conditions over the installed life. For example, if a component is needed to maintain the reactor in a safe shutdown condition during an accident, and if the component is subjected to a harsh environment during that accident, then documentation must be prepared addressing the ability of the equipment to work properly in the accident environment. The requirement for an EQ program at SRS was mandated by the Department of Energy (DOE) K-Reactor Safety Evaluation Report (SER) which requires SRS to: (1) provide a long term plan for an EQ program with DOE approval prior to restart and (2) prepare and submit to DOE, Justifications for Continued Operations, that justify restarting and operating the K-Reactor until a long term compliance can be achieved with DOE approval.
