Leningrad : | Operating History | Scope of DOE Activities | Accomplishments |


Management and Operational Safety

  • Operator exchanges that trained plant personnel to develop improved operating safety procedures and practices were completed.

  • First drafts of all emergency operating instructions that promote safety through improved accident mitigation strategies for the plant were completed.

  • Valve-seat resurfacing equipment, a pipe lathe/weld-preparation machine, and a vibration monitoring and shaft alignment system for improving safety maintenance activities at the plant were provided.

  • Basic equipment was provided for the development and support of training at the plant. This equipment included computers, printers, a scanner, photocopiers, overhead projectors, projector screens, video equipment, and various consumables and office supplies.

  • The first phase to transfer the Systematic Approach to Training methodology and training materials developed at the Balakovo Training Center to the Leningrad plant was completed. A pilot course for shift supervisors was developed and implemented.

  • Instructors from the plant have been trained in the Systematic Approach to Training methodology and in instructor skills.

Engineering and Technology Upgrades

  • Fire detection equipment was installed in Unit 1. Additional fire detection equipment for Unit 1 and the complete system for Unit 2 have been manufactured and delivered to the plant. Installation is scheduled to be completed by the end of 1998.

  • A safety parameter display system for Unit 4 was assembled and tested. Installation and testing at the plant are scheduled for February 1999.

Plant Safety Evaluations

  • The plant has staffed a safety analysis group to support the probabilistic safety assessment and full-scope in-depth safety assessment (ISA). The plant is taking the lead in identifying the scope and content of the ISA.

  • Project planning to expand the plant's Unit 2 safety assessment to a full-scope in-depth safety assessment necessary to meet Russian regulatory requirements was completed. An in-depth safety assessment for Unit 2 was initiated. In support of the assessment, system descriptions and a safety analysis have been completed. Plant-specific reliability and operational data are being collected and risk quantification is near completion.
