Long term operation - Life time extension

The Preparatory Study for Long-term Operation assesses the feasibility of extending plant operating life. IAEA’s LTO feasibility requirements are the basis of Framatome's Preparatory Lifetime Study. This simplified, rapid approach helps identify plant-wide preventive measures to enhance the current technical condition of the plant and recommend time frames for implementation. The assessment can also include a preliminary evaluation of key cost elements to support investment decisions. Framatome NP's Preparatory LTO Study provides the utility with the road map to lifetime extension, license renewal or LTO.
