Site contamination at Khmelnitsky NPP

16 February 2002 a radioactive leak from a pipeline, connecting Unit 1 reactor department and auxiliary building, was revealed. The leak came from a weld of a plug on the dead end of the pipeline supplying a boric acid solution from the spent fuel pools to a special water purification system, located in the auxiliary building. In the future the temporary plug shall be removed and the pipeline shall be extended to connect with future NPP units. As a result of the leak, 3 m3 of liquid of 2.84 x 10-6 Ci/l (0.105 GBq/m3) specific activity was released to the soil.

On-site radioactive contamination

The unit No 1 was in planned outage from April 20, 1996. On July 24, 1996 preparations for primary circuit hydro-testing were in progress. Due to mistake of the personnel, a nitrogen supply pipeline was filled with primary coolant. This pipeline is designed to supply gaseous nitrogen from special building (located on-site) to the reactor building. It results in radioactive contamination of the pipeline, equipment and ground at the special building. Dose rate at the contaminated area was monitored to be 60 - 100 microR /hour (microroentgen per hour).

Exceeding allowed maximum primary coolant temperature during planned outage

Unit N1 was in unplanned outage from 20.04.96, the reactor in cold shutdown condition. Residual heat was removed routinely by second channel of core cooling system. The first channel of this system was taken out of service for maintenance, the third one was in standby mode of operation. At 18:17 30.04.96 running pump of second channel switched off due to pressure drop at the pump inlet. The third channel's pump started up and switched off shortly afterwards due to the same reason. Feed and bleed was arranged (i.e.
