Plant Operating Standard

CC-CI-49 Containment Cooling and Containment Isolation

Normal Operations

[The original plan was for the containment vessel to remain inerted, and for personnel to wear self contained breathing apparatus, "gas diving", when entering it. There was an accident, described in "One Upon A Nuclear Ship", and someone nearly died. After that the procedure was changed to purge the containment vessel before entering, and then re-inert it after words. This involved having a truck of nitrogen in one of the cargo holds, and running an additional pipe to it.]
