 SOURCE DOCUMENT: LETTER             REVIEWER: RORP, J. Dozier

 On November 18, 2002, Morning Report H-02-0094 was issued concerning
 incorrect welds found in recently fabricated battery racks.  The MR
 incorrectly stated "fuel" racks and it should have read "battery" racks.
 Below is the correction:

 C&D Technologies, a vendor of battery racks, reported that a series of
 welds joining the horizontal cross beam to the vertical member of the
 frame were not welded correctly during fabrication of two single tier
 battery racks for the Prairie Island nuclear facility. The incorrect
 welds may affect the seismic qualification of the rack. These defects
 were identified before installation, thus the racks were not installed at
 Prairie Island. The vendor is undertaking corrective action to ensure
 that future racks will not have this defect.
