Job Overview
Pickering Relicensing efforts for operation to 2024 requires considerable work for ongoing demonstration of Fuel Channel (FC) fitness for service. Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has identified numerous areas in which additional assessments will be required. Deuterium Ingress measurement/modelling is a major area of concern which will require significant support beyond core work for Major Components Engineering Department (MCED). There currently is an industry task group which has been formed to resolve the outstanding issues which the CNSC has highlighted, and the industry has been tasked with resolving by the end of 2020. The augmented staff being sought will largely be tasked with leading this task team by providing input/direction that reflects OPG's interests. The issues needing to be addressed are very complex and technical. Steering this project will require proficient project management skills as well as technical understanding of FCs.
In May 2018, Canadian Nuclear Partners was awarded a contract to provide Fuel Channel inspection and engineering support for Point Lepreau Generating Station for the next 10 years, in which the MCED FC group will be needed to provide engineering support for all outage inspections and maintaining their Life Cycle Management Plan. This will be an extensive amount of additional work to the current MCED FC group, which will require highly capable additional resources.
In Darlington NGS, in light of the fact that tight-fitting spacer detection is not possible in early life, which coincides with the time that the spacers are not "pinched" between the pressure tube (PT) and the calandria tube (CT) (and are thus possibly susceptible to movement), ensuring adequate inspection scope to properly assess/manage this risk is something that will require considerable technical support. Other DNGS FC activities that will require support include preparing an aging management strategy for atypical PT orientation, baseline inspections requirements, and optimizing the defueling strategy of Unit 3 to achieve more aggressive schedule targets.
Additionally, considerable support is needed for various Inspection and Reactor Innovation (IRI) projects or inspection tooling initiatives/improvements - e.g. D2011 SFCR move to D3 refurb, CWEST, deeper scrape project for the DAS tool, commissioning of RDM.
Individual will also be responsible for supporting development of FC Life Cycle Management Plans for OPG and NBP, providing detailed FC inspection scope of work requirements, reviewing inspection assessments, and providing Fitness for Service dispositions for Fuel Channels
1. Experience: > 10 years working with Fuel Channels, with thorough understanding of degradation mechanisms, life cycle management issues, and assessment methodologies
2. Engineering degree is required
3. P. Eng is preferable
4. Must have working knowledge of current Fuel Channel assessments - e.g. flaw assessments, blister susceptibility assessments, probabilistic core assessments, leak-before-break assessment
5. CSA N285.4 / N285.8 working knowledge
6. Proficiency in Project Management
