Preliminary criteria for in-port operations were established for the N.S. Savannah. These port operation safety criteria are double containment, specified evaluation, visitor control, and ship mobility procedures. Double containment integrity assurance is provided by limiting containment vessel leak rate, maintaining the reactor compartment at negative pressure, and exhausting compartment air through filters. The compartment exhaust filters have a removal efficiency for particulates equal to or greater than the limits set in hazard analysis. Arrangements for visitor control and emergency ship evaluation include ship evacuation from the port, radiation monitoring, medical services, guard services, traffic control, use of emergency equipment, communications, and training programs. Movement of the ship within 30 minutes from port berths is guaranteed by establishing the availability of two tugs, slip situation of the ship, pilot availability, and maintaining plant auxiliary propulsion systems in a standby ready status.
