  • EPR Information Letter No.17
    measures to prevent any reoccurrence of the deviations observed Assembly of the main primary system The construction of the EPR reactor s nuclear steam supply system involves the successive assembly of nuclear pressure equipment items to check the correct performance of these assembly operations and assess the conformity of the nuclear pressure equipment with the requirements applicable to them ASN relies on the services of approved organisations These requirements more specifically concern giving consideration to the risks inherent in the assembly operations the checks to be performed on site by the manufacturer the organisation set up by EDF and AREVA to limit the risks associated with the activities carried out by other contractors in proximity to the areas concerned as well as the cleanness of the work areas and the assembled equipment During these inspections ASN and the approved organisations carry out and monitor the assembly operations or the operations involved in the on site manufacture of nuclear pressure equipment and also review the technical documentation Between February and July 2014 AREVA carried out an initial assembly sequence on the reactor primary system consisting in bringing several components of reactor primary system loop n 2 into the reactor building and then interconnecting them the vessel body the crossover leg the hot leg and the primary pump casing 5 After ASN analysed the results of this first assembly sequence AREVA began a second assembly sequence which consisted firstly in carrying out these operations on the other three loops 1 3 and 4 and secondly in introducing steam generator n 2 the pressuriser and its expansion line into the reactor building and welding them to the primary system The X ray inspections carried out on the welds revealed in October 2014 a defect indication on the weld between steam generator n 2 and the hot leg Welding operations were then suspended and in depth investigations were carried out by AREVA to characterise this indication and its origin After analysis of this characterisation work and the proposals for corrective measures from ASN the proposed repair for this weld was carried out and the operations continued During the month of March 2015 AREVA continued to bring the main components of the primary system into the reactor building and positioned steam generators 1 3 and 4 in their respective bunkers On 27 th March 2015 AREVA suspended welding work following a deviation that occurred during the welding of steam generator 1 A further analysis of the welding conditions was carried out by AREVA and presented to the approved organisations and ASN After examining this analysis ASN had no objection to continuation of the operations AREVA in particular provided additional data concerning the inspection methods used to guarantee the conformity of these welds During this period ASN carried out two inspections of EDF and AREVA respectively concerning the assembly of the primary system and two inspections on the monitoring of these activities by BUREAU VERITAS in its capacity as an ASN approved organisation In the light of these inspections ASN considers that the assembly operations involving the large components of the primary system and carried out between the summer of 2014 and April 2015 took place in satisfactory conditions Steel composition anomaly in certain areas of the reactor vessel head and bottom head ASN was informed by AREVA of an anomaly in the composition of the steel in certain areas of the Flamanville EPR reactor vessel head and bottom head This anomaly was detected during tests performed in accordance with the nuclear pressure equipment regulations which require that the manufacturer control the risks of heterogeneity in the materials used to manufacture those components most important for safety In order to address this technical requirement AREVA conducted chemical and mechanical tests on a vessel head similar to that of the Flamanville 3 EPR reactor At the end of 2014 the results of these tests showed the presence of an area with a high concentration of carbon giving lower than expected mechanical toughness 6 values The first measurements confirmed the presence of this anomaly in the vessel head and vessel bottom head already installed in the Flamanville 3 EPR AREVA submitted a proposal to ASN that it carry out a further detailed test campaign on a representative vessel head to precisely identify the location of the area concerned and its mechanical properties ASN will issue a ruling on the test programme check that it is correctly implemented and examine the file to be presented by AREVA in order to demonstrate the strength of the Flamanville EPR reactor vessel It will in particular call on the help of its technical support organisation IRSN and the Advisory Committees for nuclear pressure equipment and for other reactors ASN has informed its counterparts in other countries concerned by the construction of an EPR reactor On its website ASN has published a press release and a technical notice Meeting between ASN and the Finnish nuclear safety regulator The inspectors from the Finnish nuclear safety regulator STUK and ASN in the future Flamanville 3 EPR reactor control room Enlarge the visual ASN and the Finnish nuclear safety regulator STUK met in France in March 2015 Their regular exchanges enable the two authorities to share their experience of construction oversight and the technical design review for the EPR type reactors as a reactor of this type is currently under construction on the Olkiluoto site in western Finland Technical meetings were held regarding the preparation for the start up tests the problems linked to the civil engineering work reactor instrumentation and control I C and the manufacture and installation of the large mechanical components A visit to the Flamanville 3 construction site was also organised Submission of the Flamanville 3 commissioning authorisation application On 19 th March 2015 ASN received the Flamanville 3 commissioning authorisation application file This file was sent by EDF in accordance with Article 20 of Decree 2007 1557 It contains a safety analysis report general operating rules a waste management study a
