Moscow, November 11 - Neftegaz.RU. Russia's nuclear power plant operator Rosenergoatom has strengthened operational safety by addressing the findings of a review which took place in 2018, an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) team of experts has concluded.

The team also encouraged the company to continue its efforts in improving its safety performance.
The company hosted its 1st corporate Operational Safety Review Team (OSART) mission in November 2018.

Corporate OSART missions are conducted at utilities that own or operate nuclear power plants.
The missions objectively assess safety performance using IAEA safety standards and propose recommendations and suggestions for improvement where appropriate.

An OSART team concluded the 5-day follow-up corporate OSART mission on 29 October.
The 3-member team comprised 1 expert from Slovakia and 2 IAEA officials.
The review was carried out at the request of the Russian government.

The team observed that several findings from the 2018 review were fully addressed including:
  • Rosenergoatom has improved its independent oversight function by assessing leadership and safety culture to drive safety performance
  • The company has enhanced monitoring of its maintenance performance indicators to improve its effectiveness in preventing the failure of systems, structures or components
  • Rosenergoatom has improved its operating experience feedback process, such as reporting and identifying trends in the development of low-level and minor events to prevent severe events
Fuming Jiang, head of the IAEA's operational safety section, said:
  • Rosenergoatom has made significant efforts in addressing the findings of the 2018 OSART mission
  • The follow-up team observed measurable improvements in the review areas
  • The corporation has effectively used centralised functions to implement multiple initiatives and actions to address the identified issues and improve safety at its power plants
The team submitted its draft report to Rosenergoatom, which will then respond to the IAEA.
The final report will be sent to the Russian government within 3 months.
