Research reactor power detectors outside OL&C

During production of medical isotopes, the reactor power measurement chains are displaced to ease this process. Due to this displacement of the power measurements detectors, the measurement range was below the limit of 90 % (which is the limit as described in the Technical Specifications of the reactor) during 28 minutes.
The event had no consequences on the functioning of the reactor and had no radiological consequences for the workers, the public and the environment.
