Since the search for a repository site was restarted, crystalline rock, such as that found in Bavaria or Saxony, has also been considered as a host rock for a repository for high-level radioactive waste. Currently, experts from the GRS Repository Research Centre are working on several research projects to deepen the understanding of fundamental properties of the host rock and to develop concepts for assessing the safety of a repository in crystalline rock – in their own laboratory tests, in cooperation with foreign research partners, and as part of experiments carried out in the Swiss underground laboratory at Grimsel.

On the occasion of the 65th General Conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), representatives of the IAEA and the European Technical Safety Organisations Network (ETSON) agreed to continue their close cooperation. In line with the Practical Arrangements signed on September 21, ETSON commits itself to further develop a tool allowing for the self-assessment of Technical and Scientific Support Organisations (TSO) and to support the organization of the upcoming IAEA International TSO Conference.

Ukraine took another step towards ensuring nuclear and radiation safety and overcoming consequences of the Chornobyl accident. At the end of August, the Chornobyl NPP received a license to process and store the radioactive waste that has accumulated and is being generated in Shelter transformation into an environmentally safe system (operation of the Confinement and Shelter system).

From 1 to 19 September this year, joint international radiation monitoring exercises were held in the Chornobyl Exclusion Zone (CEZ) under a project of the German Federal Office for Radiation Protection and State Specialized Enterprise “Ecocenter” with the assistance of the German Embassy in Ukraine. The objective was to prepare an up-to-date map showing the distribution of Cs-137 radiation contamination and predict the nature of its changes.

Tucked away on a quiet industrial estate near Manchester Airport, a key test facility has helped to keep the UK’s nuclear power stations running for more than 40 years.
The Wythenshawe Boiler Rig, owned by EDF and operated by Jacobs, has provided an in-depth understanding of what was happening and what might happen inside advanced gas-cooled reactor (AGR) boilers.

Aerial inspections of electric overhead lines are a suitable tool to increase their reliability and thus also have an impact on increasing the reliability of the operation of nuclear power plants.
