NS SAVANNAH SITE EVALUATIONS
Exposure of persons in port areas as a result of certain N.S. Savannah accidents has been determined. The Savannah is evaluated by criteria established for stationary nuclear power plants. Determination of exposures includes consideration of the previous operating history of the vessel and the capability of removing it from port in the event of an accident. Ship removal capability from harbors and the lower powers associated with vessel operation in harbor waters combines to permit the exposures to be reduced to relatively small values. Resulting exposures following a maximum credible accident are below the allowable limits set by the Site Criteria Guide, even if no preventive action is taken.
