About the conference

In 2001 OKB “GIDROPRESS” resumed to organize the Conference “Safety Assurance of NPP with VVER”. The 2nd Conference was held with assistance of the RF Ministry of Atomic Energy. The task of the Conference was to consider and summarize experience in safety assurance accumulated during the last years. Representatives of more than 60 enterprises and organizations of Russia, CIS and other countries took part in its activities. 201 papers on urgent problems of safety assurance of WWER NPP, including 67 papers discussed at 9 plenary sessions, were presented at the Conference.

The results of R&D, experimental and design work presented in the conference papers make an important contribution to the choice and justification of engineering solutions, which ensure VVER safety within the frameworks of programmes for modernization and life-time extension of operating nuclear power plants and those under construction in Russia and other countries.

The purpose of the Conference is to exchange of information and discuss safety issues of VVER NPP operation.

  • Reliability and safety of NPP operation
  • Calculation-theoretical and experimental justification of VVER-type reactor plants
  • Verification of computer codes for safety justification
  • Reactor plant upgrading for the purpose of safety enhancement
  • Safety substantiation of NPP service life extension
  • Innovative reactor plants
  • Development, verification and application of CFD computer codes in nuclear engineering
