SAFEGUARDS REPORT; SERVICING OF THE NS SAVANNAH
This report details the necessary safeguards in servicing the N.S. Savannah at its proposed home port at Brooklyn Shipyards, New York. The first section of the report describes the site, Todd Shipyards Corporation organization, and summarizes the maximum credible accidents (MCA). Section two through six each discuss a type of servicing: barge operation, waste transfer, drydocking, maintenance, and refueling. Each describes the equipment and process used and then postulates the serious credible accidents. The seventh section, on Health Physics, covers radiation safety as it applies to all types of servicing. The effects of the MCA, arrived at in sections two through six, on the Brooklyn Shipyard and surrounding area are discussed in section eight.
