  • The Prairie Island Nuclear Generating Plant completed the development of its Configuration Management Program Plan in late 1988. The purpose of the plan was to establish the philosophies and perspectives of configuration management (CM) that will be used to guide the formal implementation of the CM program. In addition, a series of specific activities was defined to build on currently successful programs at Prairie Island and further the implementation of CM. This paper discusses the role that plant operations, training, and maintenance play in CM at Prairie Island.
  • The Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982, Pub. L. 97-425, was signed by the President on January 7, 1983. Section 301 of this Act requires the Secretary of Energy to prepare a comprehensive report known as the Mission Plan. The purpose of this report is to "provide an informational basis sufficient to permit informed decisions to be made in carrying out the repository program and the research, development, and demonstration programs required under the Act." Section 301 of the Act further requires the Secretary to submit a draft Mission Plan to the states, the affected Indian Tribes, the Nuclear Regulatorymore » Commission, and other Government agencies as the Secretary deems appropriate for their comments. The draft Mission Plan was completed in April 1984. About 3000 copies were distributed for review and comment. The Department of Energy received sets of comments from over 100 organizations and individuals totalling nearly 2500 individual comments. Many differing positions and viewpoints have been strongly expressed. The major topics covered in the comments include: the consultation and cooperation process with the states; plans for disposing of defense waste; the repository schedule; the preliminary determination that sites are suitable for development as repositories; the need for a second exploratory shaft; DOE taking title to spent fuel by 1998; the need for strong, centralized management; transportation concerns; monitored retrievable storage criteria; integration of the first and second repository schedules; need for strong quality assurance; the need and timing for a second repository; socioeconomic and institutional concerns; and the repository site recommendation methodology. The Department is expanding and adding discussions of various topics in the Mission Plan as requested. In addition, the Department is addressing all areas of concern in the comments in a separate Comment Response Document to be published as a companion to the Mission Plan.« less
  • The US DOE has committed to respond to comments on the SCP throughout the site characterization process. As of January 1990 DOE has received 4,574 comments on both the SCP/Consultation Draft and the statutory SCP. Of these, 2,662 responses have been completed and returned to the originators. Many comments are programmatic in nature and express diverse concerns beyond the scope of the SCP. DOE uses a three-tiered process in responding to comments that integrated technical and management responsibilities. The process defines specific roles in developing, reviewing, and concurring on responses. Commitments or open-items can be generated in DOE responses tomore » comments, which are tracked on a relational database. Major changes reflected in the Secretary of Energy`s 1989 reassessment of the high-level waste program were advocated in comments on the SCP. Most DOE commitments, however, deal with consideration of recommendations contained in SCP comments relevant to low-levels of technical planning detail (SCP Study Plans). Commitments are discharged when referred to the appropriate quality-affecting or management process whereupon their merits can be evaluated.« less
  • Thermionic energy conversion (TEC) deserves consideration for topping any conversion or process system that receives heat from an energy source at much higher temperatures: in recent TEC-topping analyses, overall plant efficiency (OPE) and cost of electricity (COE) improve slightly with current capabilities and substantially with fully matured technologies. And enhanced credibility derives from proven hot-corrosion protection for TEC by silicon-carbide clads in fossil-fuel combustion products. Combustion augmentation with TEC (CATEC) affords minimal cost and plant perturbation, but with smaller OPE and COE improvements than more conventional topping applications. However risk minimization as well as comparative simplicity and convenience favor CATECmore » for early market penetration. Therefore a program-management plan is apropos. That plan, its inputs, characteristics, outputs and capabilities are reported.« less
  • The paper presents the progress of the Decontamination Plan and Radioactive Waste Management Plan which accompanies the Decommissioning Plan for research reactor VVR-S located in Magurele, Ilfov, near Bucharest, Romania. The new variant of the Decommissioning Plan was elaborated taking into account the IAEA recommendation concerning radioactive waste management. A new feasibility study for VVR-S decommissioning was also elaborated. The preferred safe management strategy for radioactive wastes produced by reactor decommissioning is outlined. The strategy must account for reactor decommissioning, as well as rehabilitation of the existing Radioactive Waste Treatment Plant and the upgrade of the Radioactive Waste Disposal Facilitymore » at Baita-Bihor. Furthermore, the final rehabilitation of the laboratories and reusing of cleaned reactor building is envisaged. An inventory of each type of radioactive waste is presented. The proposed waste management strategy is selected in accordance with the IAEA assistance. Environmental concerns are a part of the radioactive waste management strategy. In conclusion: The current version 8 of the Draft Decommissioning Plan which include the Integrated concept of Decontamination and Decommissioning and Radwaste Management, reflects the substantial work that has been incorporated by IFIN-HH in collaboration with SITON, which has resulted in substantial improvement in document The decommissioning strategy must take into account costs for VVR-S Reactor decommissioning, as well as costs for much needed refurbishments to the radioactive waste treatment plant and the Baita-Bihor waste disposal repository. Several improvements to the Baita-Bihor repository and IFIN-HH waste treatment facility were proposed. The quantities and composition of the radioactive waste generated by VVR-S Reactor dismantling were again estimated by streams and the best demonstrated practicable processing solution was proposed. The estimated quantities of materials to be managed in the near future raise some issues that need to be solved swiftly, such as treatment of aluminum and lead and graphite management. It is envisaged that these materials to be treated to Subsidiary for Nuclear Research (SCN) Pitesti. (authors)« less
