Nowadays the issue of supporting European NPP construction projects on Russian technologies is becoming particularly topical. One of the success factors is the qualitative and, most importantly, timely development of key competencies for the entire supply chain. Here the Hungarian company MVM Erbe Ltd stands out, experts of which actively joined in the development of cooperation on the Paks-II NPP project.
For this purpose on May 28-30, 2018 twenty specialists from MVM ERBE Ltd. completed training on the basis of the St. Petersburg branch of Rosatom Technical Academy as a part of personnel training on the Basic Plant Course (AES-2006 technology).
This training was a continuation of the first part started in October 2017 in Budapest and took into account the experience of lessons learned and feedback analysis of trainees.
During training the participants were divided into three working groups depending on their professional background, which made the process more targeted, efficient and rich in examples of technical solutions. The groups were arranged as follows:
- NPP systems;
- construction and engineering;
- electrical part.
The experts from JSC Atomproekt, St. Petersburg (part of JSC ASE group) performed as instructors. The competence of the company, among others, includes the design and construction of large-capacity nuclear power plants on a turn-key basis, thanks to which, the cooperation was particularly fruitful and allowed the trainees to gain basic knowledge of the design of various systems, structures and components of AES-2006 at the example of the Hanhikivi -1 NPP, Leningrad NPP-2 and Paks II.
The module was completed by a visit to the site of Leningrad NPP-2.
