RADIOACTIVE CONTAMINATION OF THE UNIT ROOMS DUE TO REACTOR COOLANT LEAK IN THE AUXILIARY SYSTEM

The unit with the fast breeder reactor was operating at rated power (600 MWe). At 11:19 a.m. local time personnel scrammed the reactor manually due to activity increase in the air duct of the exhaust ventilation system from the compartment (unattended while operation). The cause of activity increase was a leak in the auxiliary system - primary coolant (Na) cleanup system. Personnel isolated components of this system after identification of the leak indications.
