On 10-11 September the delegation of the Finnish Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority (STUK) visited the Hungarian Atomic Energy Authority. Hungarian and Finnish experts have met for the sixth time to share their licensing and supervisory experiences.
On the first day of the
meeting, Paks II. Zrt. have presented the rock samples taken during the
site investigation, the GIS database, and the site of the new NPP.
On Tuesday the regulatory
bodies continued the bilateral discussions at the HAEA. The parties informed
each other about the current state of their new nuclear power plant projects,
tasks of the near future and experiences related to the oversight activities
of the nuclear authorities.
In addition to nuclear
safety, co-operation continued in safeguards and security areas as well.
In Finland, Fennovoima
Oy intends to build the same type of nuclear power plant as the proposed
new units in Hungary, so the Finnish and Hungarian authorities hold expert
level meetings multiple times a year to exchange oversight experiences.
