Next Workshop: September 2013, for more information contact GSAN Contact Point.
Description: IAEA Zwentendorf Plant Walk down Workshops pilot the use of the Austrian Zwentendorf Nuclear Power Plant (never commissioned), which is now available for training and demonstration purposes. The workshops provide: an introduction to the IAEA safety standards referencing plant walk downs; instructions in preparing for and performing a plant walk down; access to the Zwentendorf NPP plant to conduct the walk downs, and; instructions on post walk down activities. Prepared by instructors from USNRC, the programme contains lectures on different plant systems and actual walk down practices inside the plant.
Workshop Objective: Familiarize participants with plant walk down methods and inspection practices and provide on-site exercises on preparation and conduct of walk downs. Participants will also be familiarized with the requirements and guidance of IAEA safety standards in the area of plant walk downs in support of safety assessment for nuclear power plants.
This is an opportunity to view all the “nuts and bolts” and pipes and pumps of a plant with guided access to all areas without concern for radiation exposure. Several national teams have already attended this very interesting and informative workshop in 2012.
The June 2013 Workshop is now full but registration will open soon for the September 2013 Workshop.
