In 2006, construction of the Svalbard Global Seed Vault (SGSV) also known as the Doomsday Seed Vault began in Spitsbergen, an island in Norway.
From one perspective, SGSV appears to eliminate the three temporalities that I described in previous sections--longue duree histories, playful attunements, and lively encounters--by arresting or stopping time through freezing and storage.
According to the IAEA, the most important of these are: completion of the nuclear service water system project with a capability to endure earthquakes of high magnitude; installation of seven fast closing main steam isolation valves (MSIV); 12 steam generator safety valves (SGSV) and two safety valves of the pressuriser replaced by new equipment; installation of a leak detecting system from the primary to the secondary circuit; and the emergency condenser tubing in low-pressure cooling system has been replaced.
