Abstract

PSA is used extensively in the safety management and control by the Finnish power utilities and by the regulatory authority. Full scope level 1 and 2 PSAs have been carried out for the Finnish NPPs, including risk analysis of harsh weather conditions and seismic events. For a new NPP unit, PSA will be used to support decision making starting at the design phase.
