International missions continue to monitor BelNPP after start-up

MINSK, 5 February (BelTA) - Deputy Chief Engineer for Personnel Training - Head of the Training Center of the Belarusian Nuclear Power Plant (BelNPP) Aleksandr Yerin talked about international missions after the BelNPP launch as he spoke at a roundtable hosted by BelTA.

"BelNPP has hosted all major missions of the IAEA and the World Association of Nuclear Power Operators (WANO). The missions included comprehensive assessment of nuclear power infrastructure, safety assessment of emergency preparedness and response, personnel training, accounting and control of nuclear materials," Aleksandr Yerin said.

According to him, an IAEA mission was also invited to the BelNPP prior to the commissioning of the first unit to examine operational safety. "All the recommendations and suggestions made by the experts have been included in various BelNPP action plans. We have implemented these actions within the set deadlines and fulfilled the proposals by the experts of the international missions," Aleksandr Yerin said.

In addition, in the autumn of 2022 the World Association of Nuclear Operators conducted a corporate partner audit on the BelNPP operating organization. "The expert mission highlighted a large amount of work done at the BelNPP and the potential of our plant. They also lauded the positive practices and proposals that we have already implemented. I would like to note that IAEA inspectors continue to visit us and monitor the operation of the core zone," Aleksandr Yerin added.
