REPORT ON NUCLEAR SAFETY ASSOCIATED WITH DRYDOCKING NS SAVANNAH

Supplemental drydocking procedures and operations for the N.S. Savannah are provided from the aspect of radiological safety as a result of nuclear propulsion plant installation in the vessel. This document serves as a shipyard guide for both drydocking, and the radiological problems with regard to responsibility, monitoring, decontamination, temporary shielding, personnel, and temporary reactor cooling connections. The drydocking facility is responsible for radiological safety during shipyard operations, and requires increased strength and buoyancy to support the unusual load in the area of the reactor containment.
