Objectives

R1.01/93

This On-Site-Assistance, in short “OSA”, project deals with the increase of the safety culture on the NPP. As in all other cases the OSA was performed by an EU utility, working with a team of Western and Russian experts.

General purpose of the OSA:

  • Definition of safety deficits;
  • Proposal for remediation with or without further financial EC support;
  • Definition of project proposals for EC to seek financial support for the selected project(s);
  • Preparation of “Technical Specifications” (TS) for equipment supply projects, when a project has been adopted by EC and Minatom;
  • Preparation of “Technical Terms of Reference” (TOR) for service projects, if considered necessary;
  • Assistance to EC and Beneficiary in the procurement process to purchase the equipment;
  • Assistance in the implementation / installation of procured equipment. The Utility contracted by EC for this OSA was KLE (NPP Emsland, Germany).

R1.01/94

According to the intention of the European Union and the Russian Ministry of Atomic Power the operational safety assistance, which started with TACIS 92, continued with TACIS 93 with the same Western and Eastern Utility and NPPs. Similar to the procedure in TACIS 92 a joint Western/Eastern working team was to be set up to continue the work started in TACIS 92. In this case KKW Emsland was the Consultant, contracted by the EC to provide operational safety assistance to Kola NPP.
