    This is coincidental with the NRC program on seismic issues related to NPPs.

    With regard to design basis scenarios and spent fuel pool cooling/instrumentation, is the NRC looking at permanent installation or leaning more towards portable equipment? During the Fukushima accident, Westinghouse created a portable spent fuel pool cooling system. I don't know any technical details of it, however I was able to find this article.
