Title: REVIEW OF TRANSAMERICA DELAVAL INC. DIESEL GENERATOR OWNERS' GROUP ENGINE REQUALIFICATION PROGRAM

Abstract

In December 1983, 13 nuclear utilities that own TDI diesel generators formally established an Owners• Group to address concerns regarding the reliability and operability of these engines. The Owners' Group program for engine requalification consisted of four major elements: 1) resolution of known problems with potentially generic implications, 2) a design review and quality revalidation (DR/QR) effort aimed at identifying and correcting potential problems with the important engine components, 3) expanded engine testing and inspection, and 4) enhanced engine maintenance and surveillance (M/S) to maintain the qualification of the diesel engines for the lifetime of the nuclear plants that they service. In providing technical support to NRC, the PNL project staff, assisted by a number of diesel engine consultants, focused on the four major elements of the Owners' Group engine requalification program, addressing both generic and plant-specific areas.
