Example text

The steady operation of the facility enabled the operator to acquire further knowledge of the behaviour of the plant, to complete the requalification of the work performed since 1993 to fight sodium fires, and to achieve the acquisitions as scheduled in the KAP (Knowledge Acquisition Programme) (§ 5) assigned to Superphenix. Several experiments in the framework of the KAP were performed at the end of 1996. The main scheduled outage took place during the second quarter of 1996 and was devoted to the replacement of 21 control rods and to annual maintenance operations.

2 % in 1996 instead of 3 % in 1995) and a new reduction in programmed shutdown periods (14,1 % instead of 16 % in 1995). 6 event per reactor/year. A level 1 classification was given to 84 events. A level 2 classification was given to 2 events (INES scale). In the field of Fast Reactors, the main events of 1996 were the following. At the end of February 1996, the PHENIX reactor was ready for operation. After review meetings, in February 1996, the French Safety Authority did not rule on the possibility of extending the lifetime of PHENIX, and did not want to authorize performance of the 50 th cycle.

9 TWh (14 %) by hydraulic plants. 9 TWh were used for pumping, while line losses came to 31 TWh. 8 % in comparison to the 1995 consumption. At the end of 1996, "Electricite de France" had 55 PWR units (Thirty four 900 MWe units, twenty 1300 MWe units, and one 1450 MWe unit, CHOOZ Bl) in operation. Total capacity for PWR was 59795 MWe (58 340 MWe end of 1995). 1 % for the 900 MWe units. With contributions from : P. COULON for the PHENIX paragraph, D. CLEMENT (NERSA), B. MESNAGE for the SUPERPHENIX paragraph, S.
