The new German cinema: music, history, and the matter of style

Ingresses of seaweed, restricting the seawater cooling flow to the main condenser and to other key plant ancillaries, caused reactor trips and significant loss of availability in the early years. Improvements to plant in the seawater pump house only partly alleviated the problem and in 1980 it was decided that a more radical solution should be sought. Modelling trials by a hydraulics consultancy led to a decision to construct a barrier with a low-tide by-pass channel on the foreshore at the seawater inlet.

In this context, one of the three radial breeder rows of the core was replaced by steel subassemblies and the replacement of the two other rows is planned for the next few years. An extensive irradiation programme of minor actinides is being defined. Non-nuclear component behaviour. During these ten years, some problems have resulted in limited periods of operation at two third full power, operating on two secondary circuits. In May 1984, a new secondary sodium leak occurred in an IHX: sodium was detected in the annular space between cold and hot secondary sodium.

Further leaks occurred in the same evaporator and in Evaporator 3 early in 1976. Whilst the steam generator unit leaks occurring in 1974 had tentatively been ascribed to weld defects undetected by the radiographic and visual inspections and the leak testing after fabrication, the occurrence of further leaks after nearly two years of service prompted closer examination and a technique was developed to remove a sample of the failed weld for examination before the tube was plugged. This was first applied to one of the early 1976 failures.
