國際核能現況 : WANO invites early engagement on new nuclear build

WANO invites early engagement on new nuclear build


The World Association of Nuclear Operators (WANO) has today called on new entrants to the nuclear industry to engage with it earlier in the construction and commissioning process. In doing so, it says new entrants will "benefit from the maximum support to enable them to achieve an on-time, safe and reliable start-up of their new unit(s)".

In its new white paper, The State of New Build, WANO examines the "changing face of the world nuclear energy industry" with a focus on new-build programmes - both from the perspective of new entrants and existing nuclear power plant or utility operators.


Peter Prozesky, the London-headquartered organisation's CEO, said: "It is certainly a time of change for the global nuclear industry in terms of new build. There will continue to be a shift from the traditional commercial nuclear power generation in the West to the East over the next few decades. It is important that these new units - whether they are built in countries with existing nuclear capability or entirely new nations - ensure they transition from a construction to an operation mindset several years before initial criticality."


WANO notes that new units are being built or planned in Bangladesh, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates; China is continuing with its ambitious nuclear unit expansion project; and other countries such as Belarus, Finland, France, Russia, the UK and the USA all have new nuclear units under construction.


WANO last year completed five pre-startup reviews (PSURs) for new-build units just prior to their first fuel load. Each new unit at a site receives a PSUR, regardless of how many new units are being built. The first PSUR focuses entirely on the readiness of the plant organisation to safely and reliably start and operate the new unit. Each subsequent PSUR focuses on the early operation of the new units, as well as reviewing the readiness of the plant organisation to start operation of the next unit.


Prozesky said: "Our PSURs show that new units and entrants must engage with WANO and join us earlier than they have done previously - as soon as the contract for main works is signed. This will ensure that there is enough time to ensure their operations are ready. It will ensure their staff are fully trained and their systems and processes are ready from the day they first load fuel into the core."



New Unit Assistance




Through its New Unit Assistance (NUA) programme, WANO assists new entrants and new-build projects to ensure that they are prepared for safe and reliable operation. WANO support includes Member Support Missions (MSM), seminars, training, workshops, benchmarking and WANO leadership courses. In 2017, WANO's four regional centres - in Atlanta, Moscow, Paris and Tokyo - conducted 68 MSMs and seminars for new entrant and new build members.


The NUA programme promotes early engagement with new units and new entrants through collaboration with organisations such as the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). WANO says this early engagement enables it to start providing support before the new unit or new entrant is affiliated to a WANO Regional Centre.


The call for action comes as WANO prepares to launch its 18 NUA modules in the coming months, which were developed in response to Operating Experience and Performance Analysis data, issues identified during Pre-Startup Peer Reviews and members' requests.


A not-for-profit organisation, WANO's members operate some 460 nuclear units in over 30 countries and areas worldwide. WANO works with its membership to assess, benchmark and improve performance through mutual support, exchange of information and emulation of best practices.
