Loss of reactor annulus integrity

On 1999/01/28 the licensee noticed that several penetrations of the Reactor Building (RB) were not properly sealed, so that there was some communication between the annulus (space between metallic spherical containment - housing the reactor coolant system - and the reactor building) and the environment.
The licensee had been opening up some RB penetrations since August 1998 in order to lay some cables in the framework of a design modification aimed to upgrade the electrical system.

DETECTION OF A DESIGN ERROR INTHE LEVEL INSTRUMENTATION IN THE ANNULUS OUTSIDE THE CONTAINMENT SPHERE (BETWEEN THE SPHERE AND THE CONTAINMENT BUILDING)

On 31 January during the investigation of a minor event the staff of Trillo NPP detected a design error in the level instrumentation in the annulus outside the containment sphere (between the sphere and the containment building, 3 out of 4 sumps). This error would have affected the actuation of Residual Heat Removal System (RHR) during a small LOCA, in the recirculation phase. Because of the particular design of Trillo (KWU) this deficiency in 3 sumps would have resulted in inadequate safety function of RHR during a small LOCA.
