Data analysis on worker dose in dismantling of Japan Power Demonstration Reactor (JPDR) (Contract research)

Shiraishi, Kunio; Sukegawa, Takenori; Yanagihara, Satoshi

The data on worker dose in dismantling of the Japan Power Demonstration Reactor (JPDR) was analyzed to characterize its features. It was appeared from the study that the collective dose to the workers was 306 man-mSv, in which maximum individual dose was 8.5 mSv, almost all doses were received in the activities for dismantling of reactor internals, the reactor pressure vessel and the biological shield, and that the worker dose distribution was similar to that in the maintenanee of the facilities which was characterized by the hybrid log normal distribution model. Farthermore, it was found that the dismantling activities were categorized into three groups depending on dose rates in workplaces, then contribution factors for radiation exposure in terms of dose rates in different groups were derived based on the analysis. The study would be useful for estimation of worker dose in future decommissioning of commercial nuclear power plants in Japan.
