NS SAVANNAH GALVESTON OUTAGE REPORT
A summary of modifications, maintenance, and inspection work performed on the N.S. Savannah during the Galveston outage of February, March, and April, 1963 is presented. Evaluation of the operational history and equipment performance since the start of the reactor operation resulted in recommended changes in the ship and power plant. Major modifications included replacement of the reactor compartment ventilation system, replacement of the radiation monitoring system, and addition of new quarters in the no. 6 hold. Routine equipment maintenance and repair items were scheduled. An extensive inspection and preventive maintenance program was performed on a daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, semiannual, and annual basis. Inspections required by the U.S. Coast Guard and the American Bureau of Shipping were performed at this time.
