SAVANNAH NUCLEAR POWER - NS SAVANNAH POWER OPERATION TO 100 PERCENT
Following extensive operations at low and intermediate powers, the N.S. Savannah nuclear power plant achieved full power operation on April 4, 1962. The reactor plant was operated under the different conditions of load changes, partial primary loop operations, scram and quick reversals that may be encountered in normal maritime service. Under each of these conditions, the reactor was either manually controlled or uncontrolled, illustrating that control of the reactor presents no special or difficult problems in operation. Sufficient data was recorded to demonstrate that both the nuclear and non-nuclear instrumentation will adequately show the power level of the plant.
