b. Auxiliary Equipment Area
The Auxiliary Equipment Area (Figs. 5 and 6) is located
adjacent to the Primary System Water Service Area. It is enclosed by a rigid
frame-type structure, 40 ft wide by 125 ft long, having a minimum clearance
height of 13 ft. A cargo door is provided at one end. The floor is at the same
level as that of the Primary System Water Service Area. This area will house
the following items of equipment:
1. 1500-gpm Water Treatment Unit with Chemical
2. Chemical Shutdown System (partly in High Bay
3. Core Spray System
4. Emergency Power Diesel Generator
5. 1000-gal Treated Water Storage Tank
6. 1000-gal Cooling Water System Receiver
7. 1000-gpm Cooling Water Circulating Pump
8. Miscellaneous Non-Radioactive Auxiliaries
9. Secondary Feed-water Pumps
10. Auxiliary Steam Generator.
c. Active Storage Area -
The Active Storage Area (Fig. 5) is located at the end
of the building opposite the fuel storage pit. This area is a ground level
room which houses the discharge storage tanks, waste retention tanks,
transfer pumps, and auxiliaries. Access to this room is gained through a
door in the primary system water service area in the Main Building. It will
be covered with earth to provide necessary shielding.
2. Control Building
The control building (Fig. 5) is located as a wing adjacent
to the Auxiliary Equipment Area of the Main Building. It consists of a rein-
forced concrete arch, windowless building with basement. The first floor
level is approximately 9 in. above grade line, and the walls are approximately
24 in. thick. An approximate floor space of 20 ft by 50 ft is required for the -
control panels, and additional space is provided for a combination conference
room - lunch room and for personnel lockers and sanitary facilities. The
building is so designed that operating personnel may remain safely within
it for 48 hr in the event of an incident which prohibits access to the other
plant areas or to the outside surroundings. -
The basement floor level is about 12 ft below grade and is
connected to the Primary System Water Service Area in the Main Building
by a service tunnel. The instrumentation and control cable ducts are hung
on the walls of the tunnel for convenient access. A blast-resistant door A
closes off the control building basement from this tunnel.
