Foreign bodies in the circuit of a reactor.

THE CONTEXT

Nuclear fuel was replaced during a maintenance period at a power plant.
While the tank was open, after temporary radiation protection measures had been put in place, foreign bodies accidentally entered the tank. The maintenance period was interrupted for investigations to be carried out and for the foreign bodies to be recovered, before the plant could become operational again.

GM CONSULTANT INTERVENTION
