The IAEA regional training course/workshop took place over two weeks and has been completed on 03, June 2016 in ROSATOM-CICE&T under the framework of the Technical Cooperation Project (TC Project): “Building Capacity for Infrastructure Development and Safety Assessment of Water Cooled Water Moderated Power Reactor Technology with Advanced Safety Features: the Case of WWER/PWR”.
This Project is aimed at building the necessary competencies in the area of safety assessment in the countries interested in WWER/PWR technologies and will last for the period of here years with implementation of two training courses annually.
Among the trainers from Russian side are the leading experts from the following organizations: OKB “GIDROPRESS”, National Research Centre “Kurchatov Institute”, RFNC-VNIIEF (Sarov), FSUE NITI (Sosnovy Bor), IBRAE RAN (Moscow), SSC RF – IPPE (Obninsk), SSL (Obninsk) and ROSATOM-CICE&T.
The trainees were provided with the information on the basic security principles, designs and technological modes of operation of PWR and WWER. Special attention was given to the use of passive safety systems for nuclear power plants AES2006.
The code developers gave an overview of the current status and performance capabilities of the Russian codes such as the KASKAD, MCU, TDMCC, LOGOS, KORSAR, SOCRAT and NOSTRADAMUS, and conducted master classes and demonstrations of the codes application.
In the framework of the workshop the participants have visited the Museum of The-First-in-The-World NPP which was put into operation on 27, June 1954 in Obninsk.
The participants of the regional course have been awarded the course completion certificates signed by Director of Division for Europe (Department of Technical Cooperation, IAEA) Mr Martin Krause and Rector of ROSATOM-CICE&T Mr Yuriy Seleznev.
