The current status of the N.S. Savannah nuclear power plant is reviewed and recommendations are offered for spare parts and components that would provide added security. Components and parts are tabulated and identified in sufficient detail to enable rapid comparison with the spare parts for the procurement program, or to enable independent procurement of the components. The method of tabulation is explained before each section of the report. System tabulation sheets and recommended vital spares are given for: the non-nuclear instrumentation system; nuclear instrumentation and safety system; reactor control system; primary, auxiliary, and associated reactor systems; electrical system; refueling equipment; and control rod drive system. No attempt was made to tabulate the specific failures to which a component might be subject or the consequences of a failure on the reactor system.
