Abstract

NUCLEAR WASTE PARTS IMPROVEMENT INITIATIVE PROJECT (aka MRI#1 – Maintenance Readiness Initiative# 1) ? Project Purpose
The purpose of the MRI#1 project is to eliminate configuration management issues and to address parts obsolesces for approximately 350 systems installed at the Nuclear Waste Facilities within OPG. This will improve systems reliability and their capability to operate as per design intent.
Engineering services were contracted with the following mandate: - Maintain a qualified engineering project team that is self-sufficient in dispositioning component procurement and related engineering issues, dealing with the manufacturers to identify suitable component replacements.
Project Implementation Strategy
Phase 1: Retrieve design basis documentation of the installed systems to support component procurement and address configuration management issues;
Phase 2: Reconstitute design basis documentation (e.g. develop engineering changes, engineering briefs) to support parts procurement.
Project Completion Date - June 2018
