Kontroll och provning vid byggnation av nya kärntekniska anläggningar: Analys av SSM-utredningar och jämförelse med amerikanska och finska krav

In the beginning of 2011 the Swedish government changed the law of nuclear power. That means it is now possible to replace current reactors with new ones in any of the nuclear power plants in Sweden. Due to this change, the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority has decided to update its regulatory guides as the guides used today only comprise the existing reactors and not new ones. To meet new requirements and rules companies involved in the nuclear industry have to prepare for the change so they have the knowledge needed when the expansion process is starting. To find out what is new within the area of the regulatory system and testing a study has been conducted of Finland and the USA. These two countries are currently a few years ahead of Sweden in this field as Finland is currently building a new reactor and the American Radiation Safety Authority has recently provided two licenses for construction and operation of four reactors. Two areas that are not currently addressed in the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority’s regulatory guides are hoisting equipment and concrete constructions. Because both of these areas are important for the safety in nuclear power plants, Finnish and American requirements haven been studied. The high safety requirements for nuclear power plants lead to slow changes in pace with scientific research and development. It is thus of interest to see what the research dealing with concrete and hoisting equipment in nuclear power plants have concluded. This study has found that Sweden is far ahead in regards to inspection and testing. Requirements for hoisting equipment and concrete are under development in Sweden and the inspection body will continue to play an important role in projects planned in Sweden.
