The plan for conducting the power plant and ship tests necessary to achieve successful operation of the N.S. Savannah in a safe and efficient manner is described. The test program objectives are: (1) to prepare the ship for safe and uninterrupted operation by a series of tests leading to start-up and operation of the power plant and operation of the ship; (2) to evaluate the performance of components and the installation of systems to determine that all equipment operates as an integrated plant; (3) to provide additional training of the crew; and (4) to evaluate operating procedures for inclusion in the Ship's Operating Manual and Component Instruction Manuals. Over half of the report contain appendices which provide a description of the health physics program at the New York Shipbuilding Corporation, a list of principal reactor plant tests to be performed, a sample test specification and test memorandum, and the Maritime Administration's procedure for testing machinery.
