Conference paper


Level 2 full power and shutdown PSA has been performed for the post-reconstruction status of the plant. The paper describes the main steps of the analyses and the results. The overall conclusion of the study is that the reconstruction significantly improved the plant safety. The most important benefits are, firstly, the confinement failure probability is reduced and secondly, the source terms are reduced in case of severe accidents.
