Restoration work for obstacle and upper core structure in reactor vessel of experimental fast reactor "Joyo", 2

Takamatsu, Misao; Ashida, Takashi; Kobayashi, Tetsuhiko; Kawahara, Hirotaka; Ito, Hideaki; Nagai, Akinori

In the experimental fast reactor Joyo, it was confirmed that the top of the irradiation test Sub-Assembly (S/A) of "MARICO-2" (material testing rig with temperature control) had bent onto the in-vessel storage rack (IVS) as an obstacle and had damaged the Upper Core Structure (UCS). This incident necessitates the replacement of the UCS and the retrieval of MARICO-2 S/A for Joyo re-start. Along with four stages involving jack-up and retrieval of the existing damaged UCS (ed-UCS), retrieval of the MARICO-2 S/A, and installation of the new UCS (n-UCS) in the restoration work plan, current conditions at Joyo are being carefully investigated, and the results are applied to the designs of special handling equipment, which is being manufactured and scheduled for operation in 2014.
