Objectives

The main objective of the project was the transfer of Western Probabilistic Safety Analysis (PSA) and External Events methodology and experience to the Russian Beneficiary. It concerned the level I of PSA. It enabled the Russian specialists to identify weak areas where improvements are needed, to assign priorities in a modification schedule and to verify the validity of the proposed modifications.
