Power...

9.5 hour planned outage on the substation.... 6 hours of diesel in the generator... Weekend of the 20th is going to be interesting.

Comments

um

well, isn't that a no-brainer for a diesel bowser or at least a scheduled delivery at T+3

Re: um

Refilling a running generator is generally discouraged due to increased risks. But I believe that is part of the plan. Along with switching off a lot of the building.

Re: um

a) that's what UPSen are for
b) I thought Generators commissioned for this purpose were designed to be re-fulled on the fly, it's not like it's an abnormal occurrence

Re: um

a) True

b) Yeah, there are tricks you can play with what amounts to having two separate tanks, but I don't think we have that.

Re: um

Shouldn't be a problem the generators are around the back and the Diesel tanks are at the front, next to the radioactive materials store, just accross from where chemistry get their liquid oxygen delivered and behind where the 5000L liquid nitrogen tank sits.
Of course you could take this an opportunity to test the DR plan for 2 South.

Lol.
DR?
Disaster Recovery. The what-if plans you make that you hope never need be activated. The recent EV1 fire at ThePlanet is a prime example.
Ah, sorry. I'm not all that good with acronyms sadly. My addled brain went down the D&D definition route and thought you meant damage reduction. *blush*
