3. On the other hand, ...
Edited on Fri Feb-05-10 12:08 PM by Tesha
...compared to some of the events that Ensho
posts, I'd consider a second failure of a control
rod driver to be pretty serious, suggesting that
there may be a systemic problem with design,
wear-out, or the way they were reassembled
after the recent refueling. If I were the quality
engineer on site, *I* would certainly want to
understand the root cause(s) of this before I
signed-off on operating the reactor again.

Put this in comparison: probably, proportionly-more
control rods in this reactor have failed (2 in 57, about
4%) than Toyota gas pedals, but people are going
completely nuts about the gas pedals.
