Develop safe and secure systems, structures and components during NPP construction
The foundations for a safe and secure operation should be established from the onset of the nuclear power plant lifecycle. NPP construction and design must adhere to national and international safety and security standards. Plant development also involves safety concept assessment, analysis of possible hazards, and provision of defence in depth for systems, structures and components (SSC).
By consulting TÜV SÜD at the early stage of NPP construction and NPP commissioning, we support you to ensure the compliance of SSC to national and international regulations and standards. TÜV SÜD also offers comprehensive and transparent risk and safety assessments called EU stress test on the basis of ENSREG. This enables early detection of errors or weaknesses and help to facilitate timely modifications, improvements and control for increased safety, security and availability of NPPs.
