Belarus stress-tested its nuclear power plant using European methods in 2016. As part of the stress testing process consequences of natural phenomena were forecasted such as earthquakes, floods, extreme weather phenomena and their combinations, consequences of the loss of external power and the loss of the heat transfer agent (water). The ability of the technical solutions, which are supposed to kick in after the initial safeguards fail due to these phenomena, to protect the population and environment from radiation was evaluated.
