What's happening at the "Ol Ferry" these days?  Is there some March Madness going on down there.  I knew they cut back the outage length by cuting out some of the EPU uprate work but I've also heard of a couple recirc valve problems that might bump it out a couple weeks?  Would that put it back at about the 50 days originally scheduled?  If true.  ::)

Hey, just a quick shout out to all the guys and gals down there who worked up at WBN Lower on days.  If you get to come up to Sequoyah, remember Lower on nights is the place to be!  8)

Outage updates are slow coming in here at the retirement home.  However I did hear they had a 120 R particle in the condenser hotwell that had to be fished out - by two of Le Ferry's finest RP techs...a certain red-haired fellow and his prankster assistant (nickname of Frenchie, or Napoli, something like that).   :P

Actually I think it has been in there for a while.  We had some bad fuel leakers at BFN a few years ago, and we had some memorable hot spots under the condensers of both Units 1 and 2, and in other rooms.  There was a place in the Reactor steam vault on U3 that had 1700 R/hr contact...it was in the overhead in a drain line.  That one vanished, but it is out there someplace.  I recall one of the condenser hot spots vanished after a couple cycles - perhaps it is this 120 R one and it was hung up somewhere inside and finally got back down into the hotwell.

Edit to add this:  BFN often drains down the cavity to the condensers, so whatever nasty stuff was in the vessel area ends up in the hotwells.

MAN that's HOT. When I was at Fermi we never drained the cavity to the condenser so far as I remember. It was either back to the CST or to a Sump. We spent quite a bit of time post outage flushing the cavity drain piping.

Now that I think about it some more, I believe the last couple outages have used the CST path and cleaning the water up in the condemins.  But the price of going to the hotwells for several outages over the years is still being paid.  Of course I am retired now and living the outage vicariously through e-mails I get from my pals at Le Ferry.

Thanks Nukedog!!  I'm hoping it works out for some of the guys that thought they were going to get to go to Sequoyah for the "back leg of the trifecta".  First two legs were Watts Bar and Browns Ferry.  You know the old song and dance, "if you want to go here then you must go here first".  Then they are told it can't happen, the bus for Sequoyah is full.  So if they get to stay down there for awhile longer that will be good for them.  I hope?

Does anybody know the physical address of Browns Ferry? All I can find is a po box. I need it for my GPS.
Thanks for any help.

If you've got a Garmin here's a file that Mike Rennhack made: http://www.nukeworker.com/forum/index.php/topic,10706.msg78743.html#msg78743 that should help.  Here's the Google map for Brown's Ferry: http://maps.google.com/maps?t=h&q=34.7058,-87.1202

Thanks, but I'm still looking for the address.

I'm looking for the physical address of the Browns Ferry plant. I've seen the P.O. box on the normal web sites for finding Nuclear Plant addresses. I've searched elsewhere also, with no luck. Other than people directing me to a map with the coordinates, but no physical address. I'm sure I can ask directions when I get to Athens, Al, but would rather have the address for my GPS. Does anyone out there know this information?

I'm sure I'll still find it without the address...

Thanks for a reply.  8)

It is VERY possible that there is not a physical (street) address for Browns Ferry.  I know that is true for Callaway.  I did find this Bartlett page which gives directions to Browns Ferry from both Huntsville & Athens: http://bartlettinc.sharestreet.net/outageinfo/brownsferry/default.aspx  I'm sorry I wasn't any help by sending the coordinates.  I thought that a GPS would take either an address or coordinates. 

I've moved this topic to the correct thread.

Got an email today: "I saw your profile on job portal.  At the outset, I believe that you will fit into the role.  I need to speak with you for ten minutes to understand whether you will meet our need and whether we can work together."  It's for "Operations Training Manager" position.  Says "Should be SRO certified".  I'm not; I get out of the navy this fall.

The letter says the position is open to Browns Ferry and Sequoyah.  Anyone provide any info on this job position?

Thanks.

I've been getting solicitations as well, from a third party recruiting firm out of Mookalakala, India.

I didn't have the heart to correct her English and send it back to them.
