Tuesday ı May 5 th 2015

Coordinator: Dr. Erwin Fischer, E.ON Kernkraft

GmbH, Germany

Every operator of a nuclear power plant

worldwide strives for safety, efficiency and

adding value. But what are the key factors to

achieve these goals? For sure, the technological

standards and herewith continuous investments

in maintenance and technological

development are essential. Of course, a strict

and sound regulation with an independent

authority of highest expertise is crucial, too.

In this context this session provides an overview

over best practices and state of the art

scientific findings on the relevant topics in

the field of efficient organization and responsible

human performance. Questions of

management systems, organizational setup

are being presented and discussed as well as

aspects of incorporating lessons learned and

Radiation Protection

Tuesday ı May 5 th 2015

Coordinator: Erik Baumann, AREVA GmbH,


Radiation Protection – a century of safety

benefit for jobholders, public and environment.

The development of protection principles

is a long lasting process. It started with

the increasing industrial application of X-rays

more than 100 years ago. Today, there is a

large number of national and international

organization and governmental institutions

dealing with the protection of occupationally

exposed workers, of members of the public

and of the general environment. This session

presents the most recent status of discussions

and developments in the fields of radiation

protection during decommissioning,

development of codes, standards and regulations.

Fuel Management During the

Last Cycles and Beyond

Wednesday ı May 6 th 2015

Coordinators: Ulf Benjaminsson,

Carina Önneby, Westinghouse Electric

Sweden AB, Sweden

Many utilities are currently facing a situation

where the fuel and core components are to be

effectively managed during the last cycles of

operation and beyond. A key aspect is the experiences

and strategies for core and fuel optimization

with regard to flexibility and fuel

cycle costs. With the completion of the operation,

utilities must consider whether to reuse or

dispose any residual fresh fuel assemblies. Disposal

of other core components, such as control

rods and BWR fuel channels is also to be

performed. Moreover, damaged fuel rods remaining

at the plant are to be prepared for safe

transportation and disposal. Finally, fuel suppliers

and utilities jointly have to ensure that the

depleted fuel assemblies can be safely stored in

dry storage facilities before final disposal.
