SAFETY ANALYSIS SUMMARY OF B AND W CNSG MARITIME REACTOR

A pre-application review and evaluation was made of a specific commercial application for a Consolidated Nuclear Steam Generator ( CNSG ) maritime reactor. The CNSG plant is basically a conventional pressurized water reactor utilizing a forced circulation once-through steam generator. The integral reactor incorporates the entire pressurized water coolant system within the reactor vessel, and provides consequent safety and functional advantages for shipboard application. The reactor core is rated a 270 MWt output, and its design employs the extensive operating experience and the developed technology associated with pressurized water reactors. Because of the relatively low power output requirement of the plant in comparison with the high power capabilities of current central station plants, considerable design conservatism was achieved for this marine application within the framework of currently acceptable design bases and without detracting from the plants functional capability. The ship in which the CNSG will be installed is a large, high-speed dry-cargo liner fitted as a cellular container ship. ( Author )
