Wednesday, March 13, 2019
Kinectrics was recently awarded two contracts from Societatea Nationala “Nuclearelectrica” S.A. (SNN), the owner of Cernavoda NPP in Romania.
The first is for the preparation of the second Periodic Safety Review (PSR) for Cernavoda Unit 1 and the first PSR for Cernavoda Unit 2. Work will involve the preparation of two PSR Basis Documents, one per Unit. A total of twenty two Safety Factor reports will be produced, eight for each Unit and six, which are common to both. Finally, for each Unit, a Global Assessment Report and a related database will be prepared. The contract value is more than $7m EUR with completion required by April 2022. This project is the latest in a series of PSR related contracts completed by Kinectrics over many years for OPG, Bruce Power, SNN and AECL/Canadian Nuclear Laboratories.
The second contract concerns the update of the Fire Hazard Analysis (FHA) for Cernavoda Units 1 and 2. This involves the update of the existing FHA to account for all addenda and implemented modifications since the last FHA was completed and to assess and propose solutions to all findings within the Control Verification Reports recorded by the Emergency Inspectorate (ISU) and regulatory body (CNCAN). Kinectrics will lead this project with technical assistance provided by the Sigura Group, a specialist Romanian fire protection company. The project duration is 7 months and the contract value is 390,000 RON (approximately CAD 130,000).
