Big jobs: Safety, planning key to increasing production performance at SNS

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

In December 2017, the Spallation Neutron Source at Oak Ridge National Laboratory entered into an extended 5-month scheduled outage to perform a number of high-priority jobs. Most notable were the replacement of the facility’s inner reflector plug and the accelerator’s radio frequency quadrupole. The success of the long outage demonstrated the ability to plan and execute future upgrade and construction projects such as the Proton Power Upgrade and the Second Target Station.
