ENS 524127 December 2016 13:12:00VogtleNRC Region 2W-AP1000In accordance with 10 CFR 52.99(c)(2), Vogtle Units 3 and 4 Construction is making this notification to NRC for determining that Inspection, Test, Analysis, and Acceptance Criteria (ITAAC) 2.6.01.02.ii (ECS System Seismic Category I Equipment Design Basis Loads) for both units requires additional actions to restore its completed status. The Closure Notification for this ITAAC (NRC Index No. 580) was originally submitted on May 17, 2016 (reference ML 16138A080 and ML 16166A030). On November 1, 2016, it was determined by the Vogtle 3&4 Contractor that modifications to the Reactor Coolant Pump (RCP) breaker (i.e., switchgear) cabinet design were required to ensure compliance with the applicable portions of IEEE 384, 'Standard Criteria for Independence of Class 1E Equipment and Circuits.' The modification involves an engineering change which adds different equipment to the RCP Breaker cabinet that function to trip the RCP. The new components were not previously qualified for use in the RCP breaker cabinet assembly. Additional seismic qualification type testing and analysis of components are being performed for the added components in the RCP breaker. Update of the Equipment Qualification Data Package and Equipment Qualification Summary Report for the RCP breaker to confirm the breaker withstands seismic design basis loads and Licensee's acceptance is in progress. The revised ITAAC Completion Notice will be submitted to the NRC once all related ITAAC activities have been completed. The licensee has notified the NRC Resident Inspector.
ENS 523548 November 2016 11:44:00SummerNRC Region 2W-AP1000In accordance with 10CFR52.99(c)(2), V.C.

The Closure Notification for this ITAAC (NRC Index No. 580) was originally submitted on February 29, 2016 (reference ML16060A344 and ML16060A345). On November 2, 2016, it was determined that modifications to the RCP switchgear cabinet design were required to ensure compliance with the applicable portions of IEEE 384, Standard Criteria for Independence of Class 1E Equipment and Circuits. The modification involved an engineering change which adds different equipment to the RCP Switchgear cabinet which function to trip the RCP. The new components were not previously seismically qualified for use in the RCP switchgear cabinet assembly. The additional components have now undergone seismic qualification testing for use in the RCP switchgear. The Equipment Qualification Data Package and Equipment Qualification Summary Report for the RCP switchgear will be revised based on the results of the testing to confirm the switchgear withstands seismic design basis loads. The revised testing report has been completed on November 8 2016. The licensee notified the NRC Resident Inspector.

ENS 495157 November 2013 16:05:00SummerNRC Region 2W-AP1000On November 7, 2013, at 0826 EST, an investigation determined that a Fitness for Duty (FFD) policy violation as defined in 10 CFR 26.417(b)(1) had occurred in the Chicago Bridge & Iron (CB&I) FFD Program at the South Carolina Electric & Gas (SCE&G) V.C. Summer Units 2 and 3 construction site. On November 5, 2013, a CB&I contractor vending machine service employee, in the presence of a CB&I contract security officer, used another contractor vending machine service employee's badge to gain access to the construction site after his badge did not allow access due to being inactivated in an effort to facilitate a random FFD test. The contractor vending machine service employee was escorted out of the construction site. Subsequent investigation uncovered that it was a practice within the contractor vending machine service company to maintain an employee's badge in the vehicle and periodically use it to ensure the badge was not deactivated. The contractor vending machine service company employee badges have been deactivated pending further investigation. The individuals involved in this event are under 10 CFR 26, Subpart K, and do not perform safety or security related work. This event has been entered in the CB&I and SCE&G Corrective Action Programs for resolution and development of appropriate corrective actions. SCE&G is providing this notification in accordance with 10 CFR 26.417(b)(1). The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified.

This 50.55(e) initial notification addresses a failure to comply by CB&I, an agent of South Carolina Electric & Gas (SCE&G) for Virgil C. Summer 2 & 3, to meet the requirements of Appendix B, Criterion VII. It is concluded that the QA programmatic issues, as identified by the root cause analysis associated with NRC violation 05200025/2012-004-02, could have produced a defect and this condition is reportable in accordance with 10 CFR 50.55(e)(3)(iii)(C). The root cause of the programmatic procurement problems was that the existing Shaw Nuclear procurement and quality oversight and inspection program did not include a sufficiently strategic, integrated, and graded approach to assure the required quality of material, equipment, and services. This notification closes the interim report submitted on February 4, 2013 by SCE&G. This 50.55(e) initial notification is being submitted pursuant to the requirements of 10 CFR 50.55(e)(3)(iii)(C).

On March 9, 2012, Shaw's Vogtle 3&4 Construction Contractor FFD program manager notified SNC (Southern Nuclear Operating Company) FFD program manager of his discovery of anomalies in their random pool while preparing to perform the weekly random pool generation. At that time, approximately 20 people were identified as not being in the pool that had active badges. Corrective actions were implemented to update the pool and provide additional verification of any changes made to the pool. Subsequently discussions with licensing resulted in the conclusion that there was not an indication that there was a programmatic issue and thus was reportable under a 30 day report to the NRC. The NRC was informed of this decision and has been at Vogtle collecting data regarding this event. Since that time, Shaw has been checking past months to determine the extent of condition. On March 22, at 21:01, Shaw notified SNC that the October - December results of personnel who had active badges but was not in the pool was significantly higher than the January through March results, developed earlier. On the basis of this information, SNC has determined that this now rises to the level of a programmatic vulnerability and is subject to a 24-hour report to the NRC. SNC is providing this notification under the provisions of 10 CFR 26.719(b)(4) and 26.417(b)(1) as a discovered vulnerability of the FFD program. The licensee informed the NRC Resident Inspectors.
