U.S.-Ukraine Foundation project begins to take shape
Tom Gittins, a U.S.-Ukraine Foundation representative, visited Richland, Washington, on August 26 to meet with local community leaders and International Nuclear Safety Program (INSP) staff to discuss a joint Richland-Slavutych Community Partnership project.
Mr. Gittins noted that as most partner communities in the Community Partnership program are new to each other, Richland and Slavutych are very unique in their shared background and existing relationship. He expressed hope that Richland and Slavutych's participation in the program will bring great benefits to other communities as well.
The Richland-Slavutych project most likely will be in the area of economic development. Plans are to involve the Business LINKS program in helping Slavutych to create its own center that will provide assistance to emerging and growing businesses. The initial assessment team of several INSP staff and Richland community leaders will travel to Slavutych this fall to discuss the project with their Ukrainian counterparts. The project itself will start in early 1999.
Chornobyl Heat Plant News
Effective this month, Mikhael Bogdanov is the new manager for the Chornobyl Heat Plant project. Bogdanov is in the process of establishing organizational structure, roles and responsibilities for the Project Construction Management Group.
A Ukrainian government commission was tasked recently with exploring funding alternatives for the heat plant, spent fuel storage, and liquid radioactive waste projects at Chornobyl. Alexander Slavis, Chornobyl nuclear power plant (NPP) representative in Kyiv, will perform an analysis of the Commission's findings, which might include using revenues from electricity and/or barter to fund these projects.
