June 1, 1983 Mr. Harold R. Denton, Director Office of Nuclear. Reactor Regulation U.'S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Washington, D. C. 20555 Attention: Ms. E. G. Adensam, Chief Licensing Branch No. 4 Re: Catawba Nuclear Station Docket Nos. 50-413 and 50-414

Dear Mr. Denton:

Section 9.5.4.2 of the Catawba Safety Evaluation Report discusses License Condition 18, Internal Corrosion Protection for the Fuel Oil Storage Tanks.

It was'the Staff's conclusion that internal corrosion protection for the Catawba fuel oil storage tanks is not being provided. Therefore, the Staff has proposed to condition the license to require that internal corrosion protection be applied to the fuel oil storage tanks by or during the first refueling period.

This license condition would require that the eight fuel oil storage tanks be drained, cleaned and coated. It is Duke Power Company's position that this requirement would not enhance safety and could'be detrimental to plant safety.

The Staff has based this License Condition on Section 7.5 of ANSI N195 which states, " Protection against internal and external corrosion shall be provided."

On March 24, 1982, Washington Public Power Supply requested an interpretation of this phrase by F. A. Dougherty, Chairman ANS 59.51. By a unanimous vote of the committee, an internal corrosion allowance was deemed to meet the require-ments of Section 7.5. Copies of this correspondence are attached.

The Catawba fuel oil storage tanks are fabricated from 3/8 inch nominal thickness carbon steel which includes a 1/32 inch corrosioy allowance. These tanks were initially filled with fuel during March 1980. Internal corrosion of the fuel oil storage tanks will be minimized by, 1) maintaining the tanks essentially full in accordance with the Technical Specifications, 2) removing accumulated water through a flush mounted connection on the bottom of each unit, and 3) draining, cleaning and inspecting the tanks at 10 year intervals. Any accumulated sediment in the tank is prevented from entering the supply lines to the day-tank

.by the outlet connection which is raised 6 inches above the bottom of the tank.

ItisthereforeconcludedjhattheinternalcorrosionprotectionforCatawba's fuel oil storage tanks is in conformance with ANSI N195'and that an internal coating applied to th'e fuel oil storage tank nou that'they have been filled with fuel oil for over three years (is not necessary', would be of questionable reliability, 8306070314 830601 PDR ADOCK 05000413 l E PDR ll1

Mr.. Harold R. Denton, Director June l',1983

-Page 2 and would pose a greater threat to the supply of fuel oil to the diesels since there is no assurance that an internal coating would not peel off in sufficiently

-large pieces that could block the outlet connection.

It is therefore requested that License Condition 18 be deleted.

\ .

[T

'=

" ~ Section 7.5 of the Se==dard states: " Protection against internal and external corrosion shall be provided." The basic question, b

'~.

is whether the working group intended .that a jinda be required for ..

the' tanks An'the . system. To respond to this cuestion, we must - ~ ~

look at our intent in establishing the requirement. The purpose of the Standerd is defined in Section 2 and is to assure that an adequate fuel oil supply to the, diesel is maintained and that sufficient fuel exists urider all conditions. This has two componen,ts:

e The fuel reserve must be large enough and"sufficiently reliable ~ '

'.j.-

' .- .: 'to meet the fuel requirements during an emergency. -

i

- E-i. . . 5:. 0 2 W ? :'~ ^ - ~-

k,.

,[]1' el 'The ' supply System anst be designed so that fuel can be delivered,] " T.*

to the engine from the stored fuel. .

The protection against internal and external corrosion is based on the above concerns. External corrosion to a buried tank could affect the integrity of the tank and thus place the fuel oil supply in

, jeopardy. Thus, the working group required protection against external corrosion.

The basis for requiring protection against the effects of . internal l, . .-

corrosion is two fold. Firstly, there must be assurance of adequate F system integrity for the same reasons as for protection against l

external corrosion.- Secondly, the corrosion products must not affect engine performance. This requirement is stated in Section 7.2 of the Standard. That is, the mterie.ls must be ' compatible. to the extent,that engine operation is not impaired by the materials used.

I Question '

~'~-

./

' Is the use of a corrosion allowance an adequate means of meeting the requirements of Section 7.5 of ANSI N195 - 1976/ANS 59.51 regarding internal corrosion protection?

Response

  • s Yes, provided that the allowance is large enough to assure integrity' of the component and conformance with applicable design criteria at the end of the plant's design life and provided that corrosion L, products do not impair diesel engine operation.
