SUMMARY
  +
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) continued monitoring the licensees
  +
performance by conducting an integrated inspection at Duane Arnold Energy Center, in
  +
accordance with the Reactor Oversight Process. The Reactor Oversight Process is the NRCs
  +
program for overseeing the safe operation of commercial nuclear power reactors. Refer to
  +
https://www.nrc.gov/reactors/operating/oversight.html for more information.
  +
List of Findings and Violations
  +
No findings or violations of more than minor significance were identified.
  +
Additional Tracking Items
  +
None.

  +
  +
PLANT STATUS
  +
The Unit began the inspection period at rated thermal power. On February 15, 2020, the unit
  +
was down powered to 60 percent power for a control rod sequence exchange. The unit was
  +
returned to full power on February 16, 2020, and remained at or near rated thermal power for
  +
the remainder of the inspection period.
  +
INSPECTION SCOPES
  +
Inspections were conducted using the appropriate portions of the inspection procedures (IPs) in
  +
effect at the beginning of the inspection unless otherwise noted. Currently approved IPs with
  +
their attached revision histories are located on the public website at
  +
http://www.nrc.gov/readingrm/doc-collections/insp-manual/inspection-procedure/index.html.
  +
Samples were declared complete when the IP requirements most appropriate to the inspection
  +
activity were met consistent with Inspection Manual Chapter (IMC) 2515, Light-Water Reactor
  +
Inspection Program - Operations Phase. From January 1 - March 19, 2020, the inspectors
  +
performed plant status activities described in IMC 2515, Appendix D, Plant Status, and
  +
conducted routine reviews using IP 71152, Problem Identification and Resolution. The
  +
inspectors reviewed selected procedures and records, observed activities, and interviewed
  +
personnel to assess licensee performance and compliance with Commission rules and
  +
regulations, license conditions, site procedures, and standards.
  +
Starting on March 20, 2020, in response to the National Emergency declared by the President
  +
of the United States on the public health risks of the coronavirus (COVID-19), resident
  +
inspectors were directed to begin telework and to remotely access licensee information using
  +
available technology. During this time the resident inspectors performed periodic site visits
  +
each week and during that time conducted plant status activities as described in IMC 2515,
  +
Appendix D; and observed risk significant activities when warranted. In addition, resident and
  +
regional baseline inspections were evaluated to determine if all or portion of the objectives and
  +
requirements stated in the IP could be performed remotely. If the inspections could be
  +
performed remotely, they were conducted per the applicable IP. In the cases where it was
  +
determined the objectives and requirements could not be performed remotely, management
  +
elected to postpone and reschedule the inspection to a later date.

INSPECTION RESULTS
  +
Observation: Licensee Documentation Observation 71152
  +
During the 2019 fourth quarter, while performing reviews associated with baseline inspection
  +
activities, the inspectors identified several documentation issues. These issues included
  +
operational logging errors, missing signatures in surveillance test procedures and work
  +
orders, and inaccurate date and time notations. Although individual performance deficiencies
  +
associated with these documentation issues were minor, they were numerous, demonstrated
  +
a lack of attention-to-detail, and made it difficult to track the work performed. During the 2019
  +
fourth quarter exit, the inspectors informed the licensee that the inspectors would conduct a
  +
Problem Identification and Resolution (PIR), inspection during the first quarter of 2020 and
  +
assess Duane Arnold's corrective actions to improve the quality of documentation.
  +
During the week of January 19, 2020, the inspectors conducted a PIR inspection of the
  +
documentation associated with the maintenance window on the B control building chiller.
  +
This work activity was chosen because it was complex and included coordination among
  +
multiple work groups. The inspectors noted a profound improvement in documentation
  +
quality over the 2019 fourth quarter that included:
  +
1. reduced logging errors,
  +
2. appropriate work and review signatures, and
  +
7
  +
  +
3. improved time and date notations when work was repeated or handed off between
  +
workers.
  +
The inspectors concluded the licensee changed behaviors to sustain document quality
  +
improvements that includes:
  +
1. call outs at plan-of-the-day meetings,
  +
2. emphasis on documentation quality during shop briefings, and
  +
3. nuclear assurance review of documentation quality.
  +
EXIT MEETINGS AND DEBRIEFS
  +
The inspectors confirmed that proprietary information was controlled to protect from public
  +
disclosure.
  +
* On April 16, 2020, the inspectors presented the integrated inspection results to
  +
Mr. M. Davis, Licensing Manager, and other members of the licensee staff.
  +
* On March 19, 2020, the inspectors presented the radiation protection program
  +
inspection results to Mr. D. Curtland, Director of Site Operations, and other members of
  +
the licensee staff.

SUMMARY

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) continued monitoring the licensees

performance by conducting an integrated inspection at Duane Arnold Energy Center, in

accordance with the Reactor Oversight Process. The Reactor Oversight Process is the NRCs

program for overseeing the safe operation of commercial nuclear power reactors. Refer to

https://www.nrc.gov/reactors/operating/oversight.html for more information.

List of Findings and Violations

No findings or violations of more than minor significance were identified.

Additional Tracking Items

None.

PLANT STATUS

The Unit began the inspection period at rated thermal power. On February 15, 2020, the unit

was down powered to 60 percent power for a control rod sequence exchange. The unit was

returned to full power on February 16, 2020, and remained at or near rated thermal power for

the remainder of the inspection period.

INSPECTION SCOPES

Inspections were conducted using the appropriate portions of the inspection procedures (IPs) in

effect at the beginning of the inspection unless otherwise noted. Currently approved IPs with

their attached revision histories are located on the public website at

http://www.nrc.gov/readingrm/doc-collections/insp-manual/inspection-procedure/index.html.

Samples were declared complete when the IP requirements most appropriate to the inspection

activity were met consistent with Inspection Manual Chapter (IMC) 2515, Light-Water Reactor

Inspection Program - Operations Phase. From January 1 - March 19, 2020, the inspectors

performed plant status activities described in IMC 2515, Appendix D, Plant Status, and

conducted routine reviews using IP 71152, Problem Identification and Resolution. The

inspectors reviewed selected procedures and records, observed activities, and interviewed

personnel to assess licensee performance and compliance with Commission rules and

regulations, license conditions, site procedures, and standards.

Starting on March 20, 2020, in response to the National Emergency declared by the President

of the United States on the public health risks of the coronavirus (COVID-19), resident

inspectors were directed to begin telework and to remotely access licensee information using

available technology. During this time the resident inspectors performed periodic site visits

each week and during that time conducted plant status activities as described in IMC 2515,

Appendix DProperty "Inspection Manual Chapter" (as page type) with input value "NRC Inspection Manual 2515,</br></br>Appendix D" contains invalid characters or is incomplete and therefore can cause unexpected results during a query or annotation process.; and observed risk significant activities when warranted. In addition, resident and

regional baseline inspections were evaluated to determine if all or portion of the objectives and

requirements stated in the IP could be performed remotely. If the inspections could be

performed remotely, they were conducted per the applicable IP. In the cases where it was

determined the objectives and requirements could not be performed remotely, management

elected to postpone and reschedule the inspection to a later date.

INSPECTION RESULTS

Observation: Licensee Documentation Observation 71152

During the 2019 fourth quarter, while performing reviews associated with baseline inspection

activities, the inspectors identified several documentation issues. These issues included

operational logging errors, missing signatures in surveillance test procedures and work

orders, and inaccurate date and time notations. Although individual performance deficiencies

associated with these documentation issues were minor, they were numerous, demonstrated

a lack of attention-to-detail, and made it difficult to track the work performed. During the 2019

fourth quarter exit, the inspectors informed the licensee that the inspectors would conduct a

Problem Identification and Resolution (PIR), inspection during the first quarter of 2020 and

assess Duane Arnold's corrective actions to improve the quality of documentation.

During the week of January 19, 2020, the inspectors conducted a PIR inspection of the

documentation associated with the maintenance window on the B control building chiller.

This work activity was chosen because it was complex and included coordination among

multiple work groups. The inspectors noted a profound improvement in documentation

quality over the 2019 fourth quarter that included:

1. reduced logging errors,

2. appropriate work and review signatures, and

7

3. improved time and date notations when work was repeated or handed off between

workers.

The inspectors concluded the licensee changed behaviors to sustain document quality

improvements that includes:

1. call outs at plan-of-the-day meetings,

2. emphasis on documentation quality during shop briefings, and

3. nuclear assurance review of documentation quality.

EXIT MEETINGS AND DEBRIEFS

The inspectors confirmed that proprietary information was controlled to protect from public

disclosure.

  • On April 16, 2020, the inspectors presented the integrated inspection results to

Mr. M. Davis, Licensing Manager, and other members of the licensee staff.

  • On March 19, 2020, the inspectors presented the radiation protection program

inspection results to Mr. D. Curtland, Director of Site Operations, and other members of

the licensee staff.
