Safety-related Analyses – Engineering Solutions for Improvement of Nuclear Safety

Main description

New safety and regulatory requirements as well as power plant upgrades and long-term operation (LTO) of NPPs present challenges to NPP operators as they trigger the need for various safety analyses and assessments. Framatome as original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of worldwide operating NPPs has a large experience developing safety concepts and implementing safety improvements, covering also the lessons learned in connection with core melt accidents.
