NSV ATOMIC SERVANT. RECEIPT, STORAGE AND PROCESSING OF BY-PRODUCT MATERIAL AT CAMDEN, NEW JERSEY AND YORKTOWN, VIRGINIA
Receipt, handling, processing, packaging, and disposal of by-product material aboard the N.S.V. Atomic Servant is reviewed, as well as decontamination procedures and minor hot machine repair work. The N.S.V. Atomic Servant, a non-self-propelled special services barge of steel construction, provides mobile, flexible, and contained servicing facilities for N.S. Savannah operations. The equipment for processing liquid wastes consists of ion exchange demineralizers with pre and post filters, and associated pumps, piping, and storage tanks. Wastes from the Savannah are first pumped through hoses to an influent-effluent station on the barge main deck, and then to either a shielded sump tank or an unshielded hold tank for storage of processing through the barge demineralizers. A schematic of equipment is provided. Detailed facilities descriptions, operations procedures, and hazards analyses are described. Diagrams are provided for outboard and inboard profiles, plan views of the main deck and the hold, resin and liquid waste transfer, crane lifting, and ventilation arrangements.
