Ensreg Atomic Stress Tests – Ukraine Agrees

June 29, 2011

I am sure the hardcore readers of this blog will remember the entry regarding the Ensreg nuclear stress tests that the EU is applying internally to its atomic civilian power producing facilities.

For those of you who have forgotten, to save you searching the archives, it is here.

As I stated at the conclusion of that post, I fully anticipated Ukraine volunteering to take part in the Ensreg stress tests.

Ukrainian participation has now been confirmed together with several other neighbouring states surrounding the EU.

Ukraine has agreed to conduct a comprehensive assessment of risk and safety (stress tests) of its nuclear power plants (NPPs) based on criteria developed by the European Union.

According to the press service of the Ministry of Energy and Coal Industry, Deputy Minister Volodymyr Makukha signed a relevant statement during a meeting dedicated to the re-assessment of the safety of nuclear power plants in Brussels on June 23.

Apart from Ukraine, Armenia, Croatia, Russia, Sweden, Turkey, and Belarus agreed to perform stress tests for their nuclear power plants.

It was reported that the EU starts stress tests at their NPPs on June 1. – Interfax
