Nuclear safety assessment tools are reaching their limits in demonstrating the safe long-term operation (LTO) of nuclear power plants around the world.

APAL (Advanced PTS Analysis for LTO)

European and international partners join forces with the aim of enhancing nuclear power plant safety by identifying possible improvements in the power plants’ hardware, software and procedures which have an impact on pressurised thermal shock (PTS) in reactor pressure vessels.

“The guidance to be developed in APAL will be generally applicable to the entire EU operating fleet. In the long run, our expected results will also benefit other industries faced with harsh environments.”

Dr Vladislav Pištora, APAL Coordinator
