Environmental Information Regulations 2004 Request Reference No: 2012060149
Thank you for your new EIR request in which you are now requesting copies of information referenced in the reports sent under the earlier request i.e. EIR 2012050102.
Your request was received on 1 June 2012 and I am dealing with it under the terms of the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (the Regs).
You are now asking us for the following information referenced in document entitled "Classification of Berkeley Boilers as SC0-1"
I can confirm that ONR holds this information, most of which can be disclosed. Some information in these documents is being withheld as it falls under the exception in Regulation 13 (Personal Data) of the Regs.
In Appendix A Survey Sheets of NSG Environmental Ltd report NS2200/500/001 "Survey of Berkeley Boiler No 9 Issue 1", survey sheet Ref no NDG/BEARD/011 records the survey of "Boiler No 9 ENDS" and lists location identifiers of survey points by alphabetical lettering.
Question 5: Please provide a map/chart/plan/diagram indication the actual position of the various alphabetically labelled survey points reported in survey sheet ref no NDG/BEARD/011
Answer 5:Please find attached a pdf file of a diagram which is within scope of your question.
The Berkeley boilers had gas flow ducts at top and bottom. It is reported that, when disconnected from the reactors and lowered to the ground, these "ducts" were closed/sealed.
Question 6: Please provide the following information regarding the above
Answer 6: Please note that compliance with the transport regulations was based on the classification of the boilers as SCO-1 in which case they could be transported unpackaged and safety was not dependent on the integrity of the boiler structure. Consequently no documents were received by ONR in relation to the recent shipments that might answer your questions. HSE archives have been searched for earlier information but no relevant documents are still extant
