Description: The ORR operated at an average power level of 29.5 MW for 23.4% of the time during July, August, and September of 1977. Three fuel elements were declared spent (60.7% burnup) during the quarter, while five new elements were placed in service. The reactor was shut down on seven occasions, none of which were unscheduled. Reactor downtime needed for refueling, maintenance and checks was quite low, with the reactor remaining available for operation 86.5% of the time. Maintenance activities, both mechanical and instrument were essentially routine in nature. In-service inspections completed during the quarter included inspection of the ORR primary heat exchanger No. 2.
