Ginna Steam Generator Tube Rupture
At 9:25 a. m. on January 25, 1982, a single steam generator tube ruptured in the “B” steam generator at the R. E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant. Prior to the incident, the plant, a two-loop Westinghouse design, had been operating at full power with no indications of primary to secondary leakage. The incident resulted in activation of on-site and off-site emergency plans. Established plant emergency response procedures were used to bring the plant to a cold shutdown condition. Unexpected operational occurrences will be discussed along with procedure, training, and hardware changes which have occurred as a result of post-incident reviews.
