Thanks, Mike.

That’s disappointing. I had been hoping to provide the list to my principal in time to support tomorrow morning’s Commission meeting. I think my counterparts in the other offices had similar hopes. Marty Virgilio led the conference call at which this item was briefed, so you might want to check with him–I’m copying him on this message to give him a heads up that you may be checking with him.

Regards, Pat

Pat,

I understand your concern. I do not believe that you were misinformed, but there may have been some miscommunication *during the ongoing response. I should know better when I return to shift tomorrow morning.

Mike,

The information we seek was provided to USAID, not the Japanese embassy. I’m not sure what to make of this. Either the list exists, or we were misinformed about the outreach to USAID during last Monday’s 1530 conference call. I can’t think of any other possibilities.

Thanks. Pat

I don’t know whether such a list exists. I led the ET until Thursday on and off last week and do not recall seeing the list to which you and Pat are referring. The most specific and detailed proposal developed by the RST was the 4 train pump train with spray nozzles to get water back into the spent fuel pools. This is the information provided to the Japanese Embassy. If we had some other list and had it electronically, we would share it promptly.

I believe all of the Commission offices would like to have a copy of the list or at least the link to get to it, if it is not to much trouble or distraction.

Thanks, Mike. The information appears to be an equipment list for the Bechtel pumping system.

The information we had requested is something different. It was reported during the 1530 Monday conference call that the NRC staff is working with USAID to identify additional equipment that could be brought in to help with mitigation. We had provided USAID with a list that was largely developed from our B5b experience (portable pumps, generators, and so forth). That list was provided to Chuck Casto. We’re not sure of what ultimately became of it. Our interest in getting the list is to provde useful background for our principals for this Monday’s Commission meeting. Mike Franovich told me that, when he was in the ops center, he saw the list over with the RST.

Thanks. Pat

Good morning. Is this the information that the Commission Offices have been seeking regarding the “equipment” requests that we have shared with USAID? First time that I have seen it on an email.
