10. Recombination system
11. Steam separator - emergency coolers
The above items of joint effort must be integrated with that of
primary effort by the Architect-Engineer and incorporated on common
It is expected that instrument vendors will be consulted at an
early stage for co-operation in design of the instrumentation and control
system. Likewise, it is expected that a separate instrumentation contract
will be let by the Laboratory and administered jointly by the Laboratory
As in the case of the Primary System design, the components
for the various systems will be ordered by the Laboratory as information
Due to unknown factors in the Recombination System, this
unit will be fabricated and tested at the Laboratory under operating con-
ditions. After testing, the unit will be disassembled and shipped to Idaho
for installation in the ARBOR Facility.
It is almost impossible to define in complete detail the exact
scope of work of each of the parties involved in a project such as the
design of the ARBOR Facility. Therefore the requirements stated above
and in the AEC Idaho Operations Office Engineering Standards constitute
the most complete information available at this time. Any additional
work which develops as the design progresses shall be handled by the
Architect-Engineer at the direction of the Laboratory.
D. Schedule of Construction in Steps
As mentioned under Sect. III, DESIGN REQUIREMENTS, it
will probably be necessary to construct the ARBOR facility in two parts.
Since an accurate construction cost estimate on the facility will not be
available until completion of the Title I report, it cannot be said at this
time just how much of the plant can be built as a first part, and how much
must be left. Consequently, the plant has been divided into three steps,
each of which constitutes an operable facility providing a portion of the
flexibility intended for the entire plant.
Here’s what’s next.
