4 .

a. Control Rod Drive Mechanisms (CRDMs)

Test-RP-5, " Control Rod Drive Checkout," has been completed for all

of the rods that have been refurbished and are currently installed in

the core. RP-5 meets the requirements set forth in the existing

Technical Specifications. The licensee has committed to interim

Technical Specifications for control rods in their letter P-85180,

~

dated June 7, 1985. The licensee committed to operate the facility

in accordance with procedures based on those interim Technical

.

Specifications prior to plant restart. The licensee also stated that

'

all appropriate tests on their CRDMs will be performed meeting the

requirements of the interim Technical Specifications prior to

restart. The new procedures are in preparation. Review of these

surveillance procedures and results remains an open item (8519-01).

b. Existing Technical Specification Surveillances

A survey of licensee records indicates:

'

. Licensee is utilizing approved procedures to perform technical

specification surveillances.

f

. Licensee activity performing technical specification surveil-

lances has continued throughout the current. extended outage.

.

.,

'.

,

.- Surveillances required and possible are maintained current. It

g is not possible to do all surveillances when the reactor is not

, at power. Additionally, it is not possible to perform surveil-

' lances'on equipment which is dismantled / removed for overhaul.

The licensee is currently proving systems operable and restoring

'

s

plant configuration in preparation for restart. Interviews with

plant and nuclear power production division management indicate the -

licensee's intent and understanding of the requirement to have all

surveillances current at restart.

-

Verification that surveillances are current is considered an open

item (8519-02).

' Surveillance records reviewed included:

. Reserve Shutdown System

.

Prestressed Concrete Reactor Vessel (PCRV) & PCRV Penetration

Overpressure Protection

. Helium Circulator Water Turbine Drives

. Bearing Water Makeup Pump

. Firewater System / Fire Suppression Water System

. PCRV Closure Leakage

. Alternate Cooling Method (ACM) Diesel Driven Generator

. ACM Hard Valve and Transfer Switch

. Fire Water Booster Pump

. Circulating Water Makeup System

. Safe Shutdown Cooling Valves

. Hydraulic Power System

. Reactor Building Exhaust Filter

. Standby Diesel Generators

. Station Batteries

No violations or deviations were identified in this area.

3. IE Bulletin and Generic Letter Followup

All the open Bulletins and Generic Letters at Fort St. Vrain have been

. answered by the licensee with those currently under review by the NRC

staff.

. Bulletin 79-01/-01A/-01B " Environmental Qualification of Class 1E

Equipment"

. Bulletin 80-11 " Masonry Wall Design"

. Generic Letter 82-33 - Supplement 1 to NUREG-0737 " Requirements For

Emergency Response Capability"

No violations or deviations were identified in this area.

Inspectors familiar'with the plant for more than 1 year noted consider-

able improvement in plant appearance and housekeeping practices.

The plant has been shutdown with major modifications in progress for over

a year. Consequently, all equipment tag status and system configurations

should be verified prior to restart. Plant management has advised the SRI

that this is being done by the plant staff.

No violations or deviations were identified in this area.

6. Exit Interview

Exit interviews were conducted on June a' '1985, and July 3, 1985, at

.which time the inspectors reviewed the scope and findings of the

inspection.
