The Review comprises three aspects of the present nuclear safety measures relating to the functioning of the Sendai nuclear power plant (NPP) when subject to high levels of tephra ash fallout from an erupting volcanic event. First, the LargeAssociates Review seeks to describe the present regulatory constraints and requirements placed upon the Sendai NPP operator to adequately forecast the nature and risk of occurrence of the general volcanic hazard; second, the effectiveness of the screening process adopted to determine which volcanoes and to what extent these represent a hazard to the Sendai NPP; and, third, if the severity of the projected volcanic event complies with the 2013 revised design-basis requirements of the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) and, in this regard, if the preparation and countermeasures at the Sendai NPP site are sufficient to protect the region from a significant radiological outcome in the event that nuclear plants are subject to a prolonged period of tephra fallout.Summary Review
In this Guide, WBC’s Plan is compared to the emergency arrangements maintained by the similar United States Pantex nuclear weapons complex at Amarillo, Texas. Further comparisons are drawn with the evacuation and other radiological counter- and mitigation measures enacted in the aftermath of the accident at the Japanese Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plants in March 2011
Now here is the opportunity to beat the bureaucrats at their own game – the fundamentals of West Berkshire’s off-site REPPIR plan for the locality of the UK’s nuclear weapons factory AWE Aldermaston by breaking through the gobbledygook to be explained in layman’s terms.Glossary
