White Paper: Equipment qualification for nuclear power plants

Ensuring the compliance of safety-critical nuclear equipment

Abstract:

As the world moves away from traditional fossil fuels towards clean energy alternatives, demand for nuclear power has risen. With both developed and developing countries expanding and refining their nuclear programmes, energy providers are faced with the challenge of producing plants that comply with national and international quality and safety requirements while remaining on-time and on-budget. 

Through equipment qualification, project owners can assure themselves of their nuclear power plant’s safety and resilience in any event.
