International Safeguards in the Design of Reprocessing Plants

International Safeguards in the Design of Reprocessing Plants

Author: IAEA Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/09/2020

This publication is part of a series that aims to inform nuclear facility designers, vendors, operators and State governments about IAEA safeguards, and demonstrates how associated requirements can be considered early in the design phase of a new nuclear facility. This particular publication is applicable to the design of spent nuclear fuel reprocessing plants. Safeguards by design dialogue undertaken early in the design and construction of reprocessing plants, facilitates the implementation of safeguards throughout all the lifecycle stages of the facility. The potential to reduce costs, avoid retrofits and achieve efficiencies both for the operator and for IAEA Member States are important drivers for the early consideration of safeguards in a nuclear facility design project.

International Safeguards in the Design of Enrichment Plants

International Safeguards in the Design of Enrichment Plants

Author: IAEA Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/09/2020

This publication is part of a series that aims to inform nuclear facility designers, vendors, operators and State governments about IAEA safeguards, and demonstrates how associated requirements can be considered early in the design phase of a new nuclear facility. This particular publication is applicable to the design and construction of commercial uranium enrichment plants. Safeguards by design dialogue undertaken early in the design and construction of enrichments plants facilitates the implementation of safeguards throughout all the lifecycle stages of the facility. The potential to reduce costs, avoid retrofits and achieve efficiencies both for the operator and for IAEA Member States are important drivers for the early consideration of safeguards in a nuclear facility design project.

Computer Security Incident Response Planning at Nuclear Facilities (Spanish Edition)

Computer Security Incident Response Planning at Nuclear Facilities (Spanish Edition)

Author: IAEA Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 21/09/2020

This publication provides an overview, based on practical experience and lessons learned, for establishing nuclear security systems and measures for major public events. It covers technical and administrative nuclear security measures for developing the necessary organizational structure, developing plans, strategies and concepts of operations, and making arrangements for implementing the developed plans, strategies and concepts.

Evaluation of the Status of National Nuclear Infrastructure Development

Evaluation of the Status of National Nuclear Infrastructure Development

Author: IAEA Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 21/09/2020

This publication provides a holistic approach to evaluate progress in the development of the nuclear power infrastructure based on the guidance contained in the IAEA Nuclear Energy Series No. NG-G-3.1, Milestones in the Development of a National Infrastructure for Nuclear Power. It can be used by a Member State itself, wishing to evaluate its progress (self-evaluation), or as a basis for an integrated nuclear infrastructure review (INIR) mission. This revised version combines in one publication an explanation of the methodology and the evaluation tables, takes into account all new material and lessons learned from the Fukushima Daiichi accident, and presents the results of the INIR missions implemented between 2009 and 2014.

Managing the Financial Risk Associated with the Financing of New Nuclear Power Plant Projects

Managing the Financial Risk Associated with the Financing of New Nuclear Power Plant Projects

Author: IAEA Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 20/09/2020

Mitigation of the financial risks attendant on a nuclear power plant new build project is a key to ensuring project viability. This publication emphasizes how various risks - including those typically considered to be `engineering risks' - will give rise to such financial risks. It then introduces the linkage between efficient financial risk allocation/mitigation and the cost of capital, and sets out a range of mechanisms which can be used to manage and allocate risks efficiently, thereby minimizing the cost of capital and enhancing project economics. At a practical level the publication provides an insight into the concerns, modes of thinking, and language which a nuclear new-build proponent may expect to encounter within the financing community as they seek to develop their project.

The Safety of Nuclear Power

The Safety of Nuclear Power

Author: IAEA Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 20/09/2020

This report gives an account of the history of nuclear power plant safety, covering the important elements from safety in the earliest days to lessons learned from accidents and current reactor safety principles. The report concentrates on light and heavy water moderated reactors, by far the most prevalent types. It concludes that for these types of reactors, levels of safety are in reasonable agreement with the present INSAG quantitative targets for probabilities of core melt and radioactive releases. The report is directed at an educated general public.
