Title: HAZARDS EVALUATION OF PROPOSED SITE FOR ETR II (NOW DESIGNATED ATR)

Abstract

An analysis is presented of the suitability, from the point of view of mutual interactions with existing reactors, of the proposed site of the ETR II on the National Reactor Testing Station at the northwest corner of the present MTR- ETR complex. The various modes of interaction between the three reactors were analyzed in terms of the experience that was gained in the operation of the MTR and ETR in close proximity over the last three years. Extensive measurements were made of the radioactive material distributed in the vicinity of the MTR and ETR reactors and their stacks during normal operation and upon occurrences of unexpected incidents. These measurements cover a continuous period of three years and cover the types of meteorological conditions which prevail at this particular location. It is concluded that ETR II can be located and operated in the propesed location with negligible interference with the present reactors, or loss of ETR II operating time due to events occurring in the MTR and ETR.
