Another IAEA Mission invited to Mochovce NPP Unit 3
At the request of Slovenské elektrárne the Slovak Nuclear Regulator invited the IAEA Pre-OSART Follow-up Mission to Mochovce 3.

Based on the request of Slovenské elektrárne, a.s. on the first working day of 2021, the Nuclear Regulatory Authority of the Slovak Republic (NRA) invited International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) experts to perform the Pre-operational safety assessment team Follow-up Mission (Pre-OSART Follow-up) at the Mochovce Nuclear Power Plant Unit 3. It should take place in May or June 2021.

OSART missions aim to improve operational safety by assessing safety performance objectively in accordance with IAEA safety standards and providing recommendations and suggestions for improvement where appropriate.

The new nuclear unit at Mochovce, which is shortly before its commissioning, was visited by the 18-day Pre-OSART team mission at the turn of November and December 2019. The conclusions of the Pre-OSART mission are summarized in NSNI/OSART/209/2019.

Attached is a copy of the letter by which NRA invited the IAEA Pre-OSART Follow-up Mission:
