Over the coming decades, a large number of nuclear reactors will be decommissioned and dismantled to enable environmental mediation.  
The aim of the H2020 LD SAFE project IRSN participates in is to characterize and review the assessment of the risks associated with the laser cutting technology.

16 Dec 2020 | IRSN

Since the nuclear disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi complex in 2011, IRSN has conducted research as part of the PRIODAC program to examine procedures for administering stable iodine to people in the event of repeated or prolonged radioactive releases. The program, which aims to set forth guidelines to be used by the authorities in charge of protecting the population, has been extended for three more years.

The stress-test performed after the events of Fukushima revealed the vulnerability of the environmental protection system of Paks NPP to earthquakes and station blackout. Project has been launched to improve the resistance of the system.

16 Dec 2020 | ETSON

At the end of 2020, the operation of new VVER-440 lead test assemblies optimized for the water-uranium ratio will start at the Paks Nuclear Power Plant. With the introduction of new fuel, fewer fresh assemblies will be needed for refuelling of the reactor.

16 Dec 2020 | ETSON

Scientists of the Centre for Energy Research (EK) studied the activation susceptibility of the pebble-sand fraction of radiation-shielding concretes around nuclear reactors. During the project, a strong research network was formed with the Czech, Polish, Slovakian and Korean participants of the RADCON project.

16 Nov 2020 | SSTC NRS

While the entire world is facing the disease caused by СОVID-19 coronavirus infection, it is required to combine forces and implement urgent measures to ensure safety of the public. Following many countries, in the spring Ukraine entered a quarantine regime, continuing to day, and limited certain activities. However, the most important and most effective measure is conscious responsibility of each person.

 

16 Nov 2020 | SSTC NRS

The State Scientific and Technical Center for Nuclear and Radiation Safety (SSTC NRS) of Ukraine and the U.S. NuScale Power Company signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) providing for review of national regulatory and design documents related to the implementation of the NuScale technology for the construction of small modular reactors (SMRs) in Ukraine. The MoU was signed by SSTC NRS Director, Ihor Shevchenko, from the Ukrainian side and by NuScale Power’s Chief Operating Officer and Chief Nuclear Officer, Dale Atkinson, from the U.S. side.
