This conference continues the work done in this area so far and will focus on the concept of DID and its implementation in nuclear installations. The essential philosophy of DID is to provide multiple levels of protection so that potential failures are compensated in a way that ensures protection of the workers, public and the environment. Defence in depth is fundamental to the safety of nuclear installations and should be implemented during all stages of their life cycle, from the design phase through operation and eventual decommissioning. While the concept of DID has been implemented largely successfully in the nuclear industry, recent events such as the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident highlighted potential vulnerabilities that could be caused by extreme external events. Recent national and international actions in response to the Fukushima Daiichi accident to address "rare but credible" events with significant adverse safety consequences suggest that the implementation of the concept of ...

An artists impression of Ostrovets Nuclear Power Plant. Source: Belarus AEC.After Fukushima, you might think that nuclear power is a thing of the past. Or that our focus on climate is the only issue of public concern when it comes to the energy sector. Yet the recent Meeting of the Parties to the Espoo Convention, which deals with environmental impact assessments across borders, was hi-jacked by ongoing disputes over reactor construction and lifetime extension. In Minsk, 200 participants representing the 45 states who are members to this UN Convention held heated discussions over problematic cases, such as Hinkley Point C (UK), Ostravets (Belarus) and a number of old Ukrainian reactors going through their lifetime extensions.. This dispute has arisen largely because the rules on who has a say when decisions regarding nuclear operations are made are unclear. Which countries and their citizens should be notified and involved in decision-making on a new nuclear installation such as Hinkley Point C? ...
Investment in Hinkley Point C - the first new nuclear plant to be built in the UK in 20 years is set for final approval on Thursday 28 July 2016.

Maintaining nuclear competencies in the nuclear industry and nuclear regulatory authorities will be one of the most critical challenges in the near future. As many nuclear experts around the world are retiring, they are taking with them a substantial amount of knowledge and corporate memory. The loss of such employees who hold knowledge critical to both operations and safety poses a clear internal threat to the safe and reliable operation of nuclear facilities. This publication is intended for senior and middle level managers of nuclear industry operating organizations and provides practical information on knowledge loss risk management. The information provided in this publication is based upon actual experiences of Member State operating organizations and is intended to increase awareness of the need to develop a strategic approach and action plans to address the potential loss of critical knowledge and skills; to provide processes and, in conducting risk assessments, to determine the ...
The scattering of farms and rural homesteads that existed at this spot prior to the 19th century turned into a full-blown village with the arrival of the railway in the early 19th century. Seascale had aspirations to become a major resort, in fact it aimed to be the "Eastbourne of the north", but this ambition did not quite go according to plan, although the railway access ensured its popularity as a destination for day trippers. It was after the Second World War that the area was transformed forever, with the decision to build a nuclear power station, originally called the Windscale Reactor and Calder Hall, and now known as the Sellafield nuclear reprocessing site. The attendant influx of technicians and scientists who were brought into the area earned Seascale the nickname of "the brainiest village in Britain". Today Sellafield is the largest employer in West Cumbria, so whether you consider Sellafield to be a blot on the landscape or a necessary evil there is no denying its effect on the ...

That a lot of people died because of what happened at Three Mile Island, as the Thompsons claim, is definitely not part of the official story. In fact, the commercial nuclear power industry and the government insist that despite the meltdown of almost half of the uranium fuel at TMI, there were only minimal releases of radiation to the environment that harmed no one.. For example, the Nuclear Energy Institute, the lobbying group for the U.S. nuclear industry, declares on its Web site that there have been "no public health or safety consequences from the TMI-2 accident." The governments position is the same, reflected in a fact sheet distributed today by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the federal agency charged with overseeing the U.S. nuclear power industry: TMI, it says, "led to no deaths or injuries to plant workers or members of the nearby community." Those upbeat claims are based on the findings of the Kemeny Commission, a panel assembled by President Jimmy Carter in April 1979 to ...
Does the activity of a nuclear site increase environmental radioactivity? Yes, very weakly. In the vicinity of nuclear installations, systematic and regular environmental monitorings ensure that discharges remain below the regulatory limits determined by the control authorities. These discharges induce some radioactivity, too low to be detected, with an impact which remains below 0.1% of the natural exposure in France.

In an indirect cycle nuclear reactor, a size of the reactor containment vessel is decreased by removing decay heat inside the reactor pressure vessel without using any active component to improve the economic feasibility. A main steam pipe communicating with a heat exchanger of the indirect cycle nuclear reactor is branched in a position upstream of a main steam isolation valve to connect the branched pipe to a heat exchanger in a pressure suppression pool through an isolation valve. A feed water pipe is also branched in a position upstream of an isolation valve to connect the branched pipe to the heat exchanger through the isolation valve. Decay heat is dissipated from the heat exchanger into the pressure suppression pool, and condensed water condensed by heat dissipation is returned to the heat exchanger to cool the inside of the pressure vessel. Heat in the pressure suppression pool is transferred from a condensing type heat exchanger to a heat

Unlike Jimmy Carters disastrous Synfuels Corp., this project looks fairly successful. By the year 2000, the full-scale demonstration units achieved 60% energy-conversion efficiency, which is quite good for a heat engine. By way of contrast Fuel Cells convert hydrogen to electricity with approximately 70% efficiency. Similar to a giant aircraft jet engine, this relatively compact yet power dense electricity supply technology can easily be turned on and off, so it is well suited today for Peaking Power applications in order to augment much larger coal-fired or nuclear installations. Time from ordering to installation is vastly shorter than nuclear and coal plants. And in the long ranger range, with wider-spread use, the economics of gas-turbine generated electricity might improve to the point where it is able to supplant both nuclear and coal in larger installations. ...

Nuclear reactor - Liquid-metal reactors: Sodium-cooled fast-neutron-spectrum liquid-metal reactors (LMRs) received much attention during the 1960s and 70s when it appeared that their breeding capabilities would soon be needed to supply fissile material to a rapidly expanding nuclear industry. When it became clear in the 1980s that this was not a realistic expectation, enthusiasm waned. The developmental work of the previous decades, however, resulted in the construction of a number of LMRs around the world-in the United States, Russia, France, Britain, Japan, and Germany. Most LMRs are fueled with uranium dioxide or mixed uranium-plutonium dioxides. In the United States, however, the greatest success has been
Swedens parliament voided a 30-year-old ban on building new nuclear reactors on Thursday after a debate pitting the countrys need for low-carbon energy sources against environmental concerns over atomic energy.The new legislation will allow construction of new reactors at existing plants from Jan. 1 next year to replace the 10 ageing reactors that still produce roughly 40 percent of the Nordic countrys electricity.The vote was passed with a majority of two with 174 voting for the bill and 172 against. Three legislators were absent.Opinion polls now suggest most Swedes favour keeping nuclear plants, but Thursdays vote does not necessarily secure a future for the countrys reactors.The centre-left opposition, currently running neck and neck with the ruling centre-right in polls before a September election, will rescind the new law if they win the vote, said Tomas Eneroth, Social Democratic spokesman on energy issues.Of course we will tear it up, he said, speaking before Thursdays ...

In February, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) approved licenses to build two new nuclear reactors on the Vogtle Electric Generating Plant site in Burke County, Ga. They are the first new licenses the NRC has approved in more than three decades.. A consortium of utilities, led by Southern Co., will build and operate the new reactors. The five-member NRC panel voted 4-1, with the majority ruling in favor of the application for two combined licenses (COLs). The COLs authorize Southern Co. to build and operate two AP1000 reactors at the Vogtle site, adjacent to the existing reactors. The reactors are a new Westinghouse design. And they will cost $14 billion and generate 1,100 megawatts each. The AP1000 is an electric pressurized-water reactor that includes passive safety features that would cool down the reactor after an accident without the need for electricity or human intervention.. The NRC imposed a condition on the COLs requiring inspection and testing of squib valves, important ...

By MATTHEW L. WALD. WASHINGTON - The discovery of water flowing across the floor of a building at the Indian Point 2 nuclear plant in Buchanan, N.Y., traced to a leak in a buried pipe, is stirring concern about the plants underground pipes and those of other aging reactors across the country.. A one-and-a-half-inch hole caused by corrosion allowed about 100,000 gallons of water to escape from the main system that keeps the reactor cool immediately after any shutdown, according to nuclear experts. The leak was discovered on Feb. 16, according to the plants owner, Entergy Nuclear Northeast, a subsidiary of the Entergy Corporation.. Entergy and the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission emphasized that the Indian Point reactor could still have been shut down safely with either of two other backup systems, although operators generally avoid using both.. They also stressed that the supply pipe was quickly repaired after the leak was found and that the water itself, which is cleaner than tap water, ...

With predictions that more power blackouts could be on the way, the Japanese Prime Minister is moving to re-start several nuclear reactors. But the PMs plans are proving unpopular with some residents, whove taken to the streets outside his offices to protest.
In a nuclear reactor of the BWR type having finger control rods mounted in guide tubes and having a member movable upwardly to push the control rods into the guide tubes, the control rods are connected to this member by a joint such as a bayonet joint releasable by turning of the control rods about their longitudinal axis. On the upper ends of each control rod is slidably mounted a sleeve which is spring-pressed downwardly. This sleeve is non-rotatable with respect to the control rod. The sleeve has either a square lower end slidable within a square tube or has projections at its lower end in a round tube having ribs running longitudinally thereof. The arrangement is such that when the support is in its uppermost position the control rods project above the fuel assembly and the sleeve can be raised against the spring action out of the upper ends of the tubes so as to permit turning of the rods to release them for removal.
