Vermont Yankee expected back on line soon

first_imgAs of today, Vermont Yankee reports that the refueling and maintenance outage is in Day 24 and work activities continue to noticeably wind down. Work at the cooling towers involving the third (and final) phase of the cooling tower upgrades continue, and the safety-related section of the west tower is complete. Also complete is the replacement of service water piping to “A” Emergency Diesel Generator and the routine cleaning of the intake bays.VY completed leak testing of tubes in the main condenser through the use of specialized “dimple” plugs, designed to identify even the smallest of leaks.  The source of power for the outage was transferred to the main transformer.  This allowed the next phase of work on the new Vernon Substation to commence.Preparations for start up continue on the refuel floor. The reactor pressure vessel has been reassembled and is being pressure tested today. In conjunction with this test, control rods will be tested. Tomorrow, the Integrated Leak Rate Test of the primary containment will be started. The test involves pressurizing the primary containment and then measuring the leakage rate or pressure drop over a several hour period.The test of the Emergency Core Cooling System was successfully conducted on Sunday, and all of the Emergency Core Cooling Systems responded as expected, but an unanticipated action occurred during the test. The initiating conditions for the test set the water level higher than normal in the reactor vessel. When the test began and steam valves automatically realigned, some of the excess water (above the steam lines) drained through a steam line to the torus which contains a back up supply of cooling water and is located in the reactor building. According to VY, there were no safety consequences and the incident was not immediately reportable. Still, plant management has taken steps to ensure this is not repeated in future tests. VY has also shared the issue with other nuclear plants. The steam lines will be drained and verified free of moisture.Work on the soil remediation from the tritium leak continued through the outage and is on schedule to be completed in the coming weeks. The rerouting of steam trap piping from the Advanced Off Gas system is complete and the reachable areas of the AOG pipe tunnel have been cleaned.The final stage of the outage will be switching and valve alignment of plant systems from their maintenance mode to their normal operations mode, and conducting final tests in preparation for start up. Once the plant is phased back on the grid, it will take several days to achieve full power. The outage is not considered over until the plant reaches 100 percent power. The staff will continue to test and monitor plant systems during the power ascension.Source: Vermont Yankee. May 18, 2010last_img read more

first_imgGE to test massive (12MW) offshore turbine in Rotterdam FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享CNBC:GE Renewable Energy has signed an agreement with Future Wind to install the first Haliade-X 12 MW wind turbine prototype in Maasvlakte-Rotterdam, the Netherlands, this summer.While it has been designed for offshore environments, GE Renewable Energy said Wednesday that the prototype would be installed onshore in order to “facilitate access for testing.” The deal also includes five years of testing as well as a 15-year full service operation and maintenance agreement.Details of the Haliade-X 12 MW turbine were announced in 2018. The scale of the turbine is considerable. It will stand 260 meters tall and have a capacity of 12 megawatts (MW) as well as 107-meter-long blades. At the time, GE Renewable Energy said it would be the world’s largest and most powerful offshore turbine.“As we rapidly progress on assembling the Haliade-X prototype, this announcement is a critical step forward for GE and our customers,” John Lavelle, VP and CEO of Offshore Wind at GE Renewable Energy, said Wednesday. “The port of Rotterdam has been a real partner and provides all the necessary conditions to test the Haliade-X in the most drastic weather conditions.”GE is investing $400 million in the development of the Haliade-X turbine. Future Wind is a joint venture between SIF Holding Netherlands and Pondera Development.More: GE to install and test a ‘prototype’ of vast 12-megawatt turbine in the Netherlandslast_img read more

Venezuela Arrests Two Alleged Drug Traffickers Wanted by the U.S. and Colombia

first_img Venezuela has arrested two alleged Colombian drug traffickers sought by the United States and Colombia through Interpol, Interior Minister Tareck El Aissami said on May 31, during a Military operation to destroy illegal airstrips used for drug trafficking. “President (Hugo) Chávez has given instructions to proceed to turn these two Colombian nationals over to the Colombian authorities immediately,” the minister said during the operation in the locality of Riecito, in the state of Apure (in western Venezuela), to destroy clandestine airstrips used by drug traffickers’ aircraft. According to the official, the arrestees were identified as 42-year-old Luis Alberto Ramírez, sought by the United States and Colombia, and 32-year-old Miguel Camacho, sought by Colombian law enforcement. El Aissami also announced that as part of Operation Gap (Boquete), which took place from May 26 to 31, 36 clandestine airstrips had been destroyed, out of 50 detected in Apure, 45 kilometers from the border with Colombia, and used to transport drugs from the neighboring country. “In this operation, 36 illegal airstrips have now been made inoperable, and we’ve detected 11 aircraft in the adjoining areas that have also been destroyed,” El Aissami said at the official event in Riecito, where a 2,200-meter-long airstrip was destroyed with explosives. “This operation is not only [intended] to destroy airstrips, but (also for) foot and motorcycle patrols along the length and breadth of the border with Colombia and to detect the spaces that can serve criminal organizations for logistical purposes,” the minister added. In Apure, which shares 701.65 kilometers of border with Colombia, there are wide plains that serve drug traffickers as locations for clandestine airstrips, and so far this year, 141.53 kilos of marijuana and 646.66 kilos of cocaine have been seized. Venezuela is reported by the UN to be a country free of illicit crops, but it is considered an important transit point for drugs headed to the major consumer markets. In 2011, the Venezuelan authorities seized 42.3 tons of drugs, down 33.7 percent from the previous year, according to official figures. By Dialogo June 04, 2012last_img read more
