NRC Event Reports for Operations – 5/26/15

PILGRIM: MANUAL REACTOR SCRAM DUE TO LOSS OF CONDENSER VACUUM

On Friday, May 22, 2015 at 1002 EDT, with the Reactor Mode Select Switch in the Start-Up position and the reactor at approximately 3 percent core thermal power, while returning to power from Refueling Outage Number 20, a manual reactor scram was inserted due to degrading main condenser vacuum. The cause of the degraded vacuum is currently under investigation.

"Following the reactor scram, all rods were verified to be fully inserted and no Emergency Operating Procedure entry conditions existed.

All plant systems responded as designed.

Currently reactor pressure is being maintained at 400 psig with the Mechanical Hydraulic Control System (turbine by-pass valves). Reactor water level is being maintained in normal bands with the Condensate and Feedwater System. Off-site power is being supplied to the station by the Startup Transformer (normal power supply for shutdown operations).

This event had no impact on the health and/or safety of the public. The NRC Resident Inspector is on-site and has been notified.

China warned over 'insane' plans for new nuclear power plants

Three sites suggested for new nuclear reactor in Vietnam

Three sites suggested for new nuclear reactor in Vietnam, Da lat nuclear reactor

VietNamNet Bridge – The Da Lat Nuclear Research Institute has identified three sites to build a new nuclear research center, which will be submitted to the Ministry of Science and Technology for approval, said the institute’s head, Dr. Nguyen Nhi Dien.

The nuclear reactor in Da Lat City has existed for over 50 years. It will stop operating in the next 10 years. As an alternative, the Center for Science and Nuclear Technology will be established; the focus is a new nuclear reactor. The new reactor will have a capacity of 15MW, thirty times more than the old one.

The construction of the new nuclear center would have started last year but it was delayed because of a disagreement between local authorities and the Ministry of Science and Technology on the site of construction.

IAEA Helps Nuclear Newcomers with Workforce Planning Tool

In developing the necessary workforce for new nuclear power programmes, the IAEA is making increased use of a new modelling tool to help newcomer countries understand their human resources requirements.

IAEA Assists Member States with Knowledge Management in Nuclear Safety

In most countries the nuclear safety infrastructure is diverse and complex, because nuclear technologies are used in various sectors — such  as health, food production and distribution, water management, construction, shipping, electricity and the environment — and each sector has its own methods of sharing nuclear safety knowledge and its own repository of information. This could make it difficult for states to obtain consolidated information and to share it with international counterparts when necessary.

To facilitate the centralization and selective sharing of national nuclear safety information, the IAEA is helping countries create knowledge repositories under the internet-based Global Nuclear Safety and Security Network (GNSSN).

Water Use and Electricity Generation

Water Use and Electricity Generation

Palo Verde in Arizona, the first nuclear energy facility in the world to use recycled municipal wastewater for cooling.

The nuclear energy industry is committed to conserving water and protecting aquatic life. Nuclear plants are designed to use the minimum amount of water necessary for cooling. In fact, in comparison with other uses of water, a nuclear power plant consumes a moderate amount of water.

By comparison, in the energy sector, biomass uses little water, but biomass emits carbon dioxide. Wind and solar photovoltaics have low water consumption, while hydro, geothermal, and solar-thermal have high water consumption.

Water from Diablo Canyon desal plant could be piped to South County

In an effort to provide county residents some measure of drought anxiety relief, San Luis Obispo County and Pacific Gas and Electric Co. will spend the next four months exploring ways that millions of gallons of excess freshwater from Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant’s desalination plant might be put to beneficial use.

Utilities Accuse MISO of ‘Massive’ Overcharges on Entergy System

miso

Southern Co. and three Missouri utilities say that MISO has billed them more than $21 million in excessive transmission rates since Entergy joined the RTO in December 2013.

In a complaint filed Wednesday with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the companies accuse MISO of imposing a “massive and unlawful increase” for power moved over the Entergy system (EL15-66).

,

have a black MC cl??s and have experienced no problems with chipping, etc - but I don't use it on a daily basis. I would think that for a daily wallet that's going to get a lot of use, one of the other canvases might be a better choice in the long run. I don't think Vernis would be affected by use in a warm climate, though - as someone else said, when they say it shouldn't be left in the heat they mean i louis vuitton purse
