----------- [ Current event for MI_Fermi_2 ]

20190530 | MI_Fermi_2 | SECONDARY CONTAINMENT DECLARED INOPERABLE |
https://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-colle...ml#en54094

"On May 29, 2019, at 2210 EDT,
plant personnel notified the Main Control Room that both doors in the Secondary Containment Airlock
on the Reactor Building First Floor were opened simultaneously for a period of approximately two seconds.

This resulted in Technical Specification (TS) Surveillance Requirement (SR) 3.6.4.1.3 not being met.

Secondary Containment pressure observed during that time remained unchanged and within TS limits.

There were no radiological releases associated with this event.

"Declaring Secondary Containment inoperable as a result of not meeting TS SR 3.6.4.1.3 is reportable under
10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(v)© as an event or condition that could have prevented the fulfillment
of a safety function needed to control the release of radioactive material.

"The licensee has notified the NRC Resident Inspector."
