Abstract
When a reactor is closed down the air temperature in the containment falls from about 55 °C to ambient temperature in the course of 3-4 days. Early repair and maintenance work, hence, has to be carried out in hot conditions. A common temperature during most of maintenance work is around 25-30 °C. Workers have to wear protective clothing according to the demands for each contamination zone. Heat stress on the individual worker is determined by climate, protective clothing and work intensity. Experiments with four subjects were carried out at 40 and 50 °C with the ventilated Mururoa suit (465 l/min). The suit allows light and moderate work for several hours with only limited heat strain.
