PAC provided technical support during the development of ASME Code Classification Drawings for the Diablo Canyon Power Plant (DCPP). The drawings were necessary to implement the ASME Section XI Inservice Inspection & Testing Program and Repair Program at DCPP.
Technical support included a detailed analysis of the SAR system descriptions and accident analyses and a systematic evaluation of all piping and instrumentation drawings (P&IDs) to verify that piping systems were properly classified as to their safety function (i.e., ASME Code Class 1, 2, & 3) and that piping system boundary interfaces had been properly established. PAC personnel also assisted in the preparation and review of unique ASME Section XI Code Classification Drawings.
PAC personnel provided technical support during the development of the “Q” list for the Prairie Island Nuclear Plant.
Technical support included a systematic analysis of the SAR system descriptions and accident analyses; review of the mechanical, electrical, & instrument equipment lists; and evaluation of the plant piping, electrical, and instrumentation drawings and schematics. Methods were developed to identify design and quality classifications and the safety-related function of each plant component so that proper work planning and procurement controls could be established.
PAC provides licensing support during revision of the 10CRF72 Safety Analysis Report (SAR) for the design and fabrication of their VSC-24TM Dry Spent Fuel Storage System and preparation of the 10CFR71 SAR for the design and fabrication of their TransStorTM Dry Spent Fuel Transportation System.

PAC personnel performed a summary review of the cost of corrosion options available to the DOE Complex for underground storage tank activities.
PAc will be performing corrosion and inspection procedures at the site to determine the extent of internal corrosion damage and failures to areas previously replaced. A condition assessment of this system will be performed to determine its reliability and to find out critical areas of piping which may need immediate attention and/ or replacing. In addition, methods will be developed to monitor/ mitigate future damage in this line to ensure future reliable operation.
Hanford, Inc PAC provided support to the physical, chemical, and radiochemical characterization of various waste matrices. PAC functioned as a liaison between customers and laboratory services, and concurrently managed samples and reported and validated analyses from multiple projects. An essential project supported by PAC was the 242-A Evaporator Campaign 99-1, which allowed for dramatic waste volume reduction of Hanford Tank Wastes.
