  1. EDF Energy completes nuclear power plant safety enhancements

    Caption: Sizewell   EDF Energy completed a series of post-Fukushima enhancements at its nuclear power plants.   The Chief Nuclear Inspector made a number of recommendations to further enhance safety and EDF immediately started a plan to meet these recommendations at eight nuclear stations. They included additional training for key technical staff, enhancements to back up equipment for cooling systems, and emergency command and control facilities.   A major part of the enhancements included a new Emergency Response Centre near Sizewell B , the only Pressurized Water Reactor operating in the UK. The facility was a recommendation of the Office for Nuclear Regulation. EDF Energy has created three regional facilities to service its other nuclear power plants that use a different reactor technology.   To read the close out report from the Japanese Earthquake Response Programme, click here.   Subscribe to Nuclear Power International magazine
