Ignalina nuclear safety projects reviewed

At meetings in Lithuania held April 25 through 30, U.S. team members from the U.S. Department of Energy and Argonne National Laboratory met with counterparts from the U.S. Agency for International Development, Lithuanian Ministry of Economy, Lithuanian Energy Institute, Lithuanian nuclear regulatory agency VATESI, and Ignalina NPP to discuss ongoing and future projects in support of the Safety Analysis Report for Ignalina Unit 2. Participants identified new needs for safety analysis capability. Joint projects to address those needs are under current consideration.

Lithuanian nuclear expert participates in technical exchange

With U.S. support, a technical expert from the Lithuanian Energy Institute attended PHYSOR 2000, the American Nuclear Society international topical meeting, Advances in Reactor Physics and Mathematics and Computation into the Next Millennium. Following the early-May society meeting in Philadelphia, he joined U.S. team members from Argonne National Laboratory to plan pipeline-whipping analyses for Ignalina NPP. The Argonne meetings included a technical exchange with experts from the Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory on thermohydraulics and neutronics modeling of the Ignalina RBMK reactor.
