Special disarmament study

Description

This study investigates the cost of shutting down and later starting up the Hanford production complex. Also included are comments on two aspects, other than cost, which are consider to be of great importance. One is the impact of a complete shutdown on the Tri-Cities community. The other is the effect on Battelle`s Pacific Northwest Laboratory. This study encompasses six special shutdown-startup cases. One set of three cases assumes a shutdown of three years; the other set assumes the reactors have been down for a period of five years (from shutdown of the last reactor to startup of the first ... continued below

Description

This study investigates the cost of shutting down and later starting up the Hanford production complex. Also included are comments on two aspects, other than cost, which are consider to be of great importance. One is the impact of a complete shutdown on the Tri-Cities community. The other is the effect on Battelle`s Pacific Northwest Laboratory. This study encompasses six special shutdown-startup cases. One set of three cases assumes a shutdown of three years; the other set assumes the reactors have been down for a period of five years (from shutdown of the last reactor to startup of the first conventional reactor in the series). within each of the above mentioned sets there are three cases assuming the return of five, six, or seven reactors to weapons production. The sixth and seventh reactors are D and DR respectively. N Reactor is assumed transferred to WPPSS instead of shutdown, and consequently is available for recapture earlier than the conventional reactors. The shutdown schedule is shown in Table IA. The dates, except for the shut down of D Reactor, were picked arbitrarily and can be moved ahead so long as the intervals are kept the same. There is one exception to this generalization. The sludge program at the B Plant will end in 1973 and then waste management will be on a current basis. Thus, the operation of B Plant depends on the shutdown timing.
