NUCLEAR MERCHANT SHIP REACTOR FINAL SAFEGUARDS REPORT. VOLUME 8: SHIP ACCIDENTS

In this volume those hazards to a shipboard reactor which stem from the operation of the vessel as a commercial ship are analysed and the effect on the nuclear safety of the N.S. Savannah assessed. Collisions, groundings, fire and explosion, heavy weather, flooding and sinking, and salvage are each considered in detail. The report is limited to those accidents which would affect the reactor plant on the assumption that the normal safety of life at sea is adequately covered by existing regulations. As a result of these studies, it is believed that operation of N.S. Savannah in any part of the world will not constitute a hazard to the population or the environment. (Author)
