Adelard and Energiforsk release feasibility study into Harmonised Component Level Safety Demonstration
In normal nuclear power plant development/asset management a number of components are exchanged each year. For each of these exchange projects a licensing/safety demonstration is required.
In the Nordic power plants, many of the current components and systems are the same, and when they are exchanged, similar components and systems are chosen. If a common template could be used for the safety demonstration of components, the safety demonstration for a specific component could be reused in another exchange project, both within the plant and at other Nordic plants. In the UK, a system with common templates is used, this study investigates if a system similar to that in the UK could be used in the Nordic licensing environment and list the challenges of such a harmonized template.
