Title: APPR-1 SIX MONTH OPERATING CONTRACT REPORT

Abstract

The plant was operated principally for crew training and power output. Some limited research and development was also performed during the period. Two cases of loss of primary water to the vapor container sump were experienced. Both of these incidents involve safety relief valves. A total of 24 unscheduled or unexplained scrams were experienced during the six monihs operation. Of these, 13 were chargeable to instrumentation and the remaining to various other causes. A study of the operating performance does not show any indications of inability to operate these small plants with crew sizes originally projected or even smaller. (W. L. H.)
