Summary Report of the 1st Panel Meeting
“Study Panel on the Approaches toward Infrastructure Development
for Nuclear Power”

July 30 to 31, 2009
Tokyo, Japan


The first Meeting of Study Panel on the Approaches toward Infrastructure Development for Nuclear Power was held on July 30th (Thursday) 31st (Friday), 2009 at Mita Conference Hall, Tokyo, Japan., hosted by Japan Atomic Energy Commission (JAEC), Cabinet Office, Government of Japan (CAO).
 
Mr. Takahiko Ito, Commissioner of JAEC, chaired the meeting and the discussion was carried out among senior officials in charge of introduction of nuclear power and experts from electric companies of nine FNCA member countries, that are Bangladesh, China, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, The Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. An officer of Nuclear Power Engineering Section, International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), also participated in the meeting. The experienced countries, that are Japan, China and Korea, introduced the experiences of infrastructure development for nuclear power, and the discussion was carried out how to share the knowledge to the approach of the international and domestic cooperation in each member country.
As a result, the member countries shared the examples of experienced countries as lessons including success and failure in the early stage of introduction of nuclear power, which could not be obtained from textbooks and seminars in the past.
 
The panel also confirmed, 1) that those countries planning to introduce NPPs should develop necessary infrastructure for nuclear power, using existing bilateral or multilateral frameworks as much as possible, 2) that the outcome of this panel should be made best use of, after this panel meeting, in order for efficient and effective infrastructure development, 3) that the experienced countries with operating NPPs should give assistance to the planning countries for their infrastructure development, if necessary, 4) that both planning and experienced countries should recognize that it is indispensable to abide by safety, security, and safeguards in developing nuclear power, and should make best efforts to keep the functions for safety, security, and safeguards, and so on. These contents will be reported to the 10th Ministerial Level Meeting which will be scheduled in this autumn.
 
*1 In view of the recent movement toward introduction of nuclear power in the region, FNCA has been holding the study panel for the past five years on the role of nuclear energy in Asia and on the cooperation for promoting nuclear energy. The panel was held for three years as the first phase and subsequently for two years as the second phase. This present meeting is the first one of the third phase (three years) to be discussed on efficient and effective infrastructure development for introduction of nuclear power based on the member countries experience.

Opening Session

An opening remark was made by Mr. T. Ito, Commissioner of Japan Atomic Energy Commission (JAEC), and the general chairperson of this meeting. A welcome address was presented by Prof. S. Kondo, Chairman of JAEC, hoping that the exchange of experience and opinion would stimulate the interest of participants to establish and renew relationships between member countries to cooperate for improving the quality of their activities to utilize nuclear energy for a clean, secure, and prosperous energy in future.

Session 1: Keynote Speech

Dr. S. Machi, FNCA Coordinator of Japan, presented a keynote speech on the scope and TOR (terms-of-reference) of the "Study Panel on the Approaches toward Infrastructure Development for Nuclear Power". Mr. P. Vincze, an IAEA acting manager of Nuclear Power Engineering Section, presented another keynote speech on the recent activities of the IAEA in the development of a national infrastructure for nuclear power.

Session 2: Experiences of Introducing the First Nuclear Power Plant and Necessary Infrastructure Development in Japan

Mr. Suzuki
(Japan Atomic Power Company)
Dr. Matsuura
(Nuclear Safety Research Association)
Mr. Uozumi
(Hitachi-GE Nuclear Energy Ltd)

Three Japanese speakers made presentations on the experiences of introducing nuclear power plants (NPPs) in the early stage of nuclear power program in Japan. Mr. H. Suzuki, Executive Vice President of the Japan Atomic Power Company, presented the experience of JAPC (Japan Atomic Power Company) as a frontier company for nuclear power, which constructed two reactors at the early stage of nuclear power in Japan: Tokai was commercially operated in 1964, and Tsuruga was in 1969. He mentioned as lesson-learned that 1) who, where, which type of reactor, and how to proceed are the key elements for a NPP introduction, 2) those who place orders (users) must be responsible for schedule and quality controls, 3) project managers who oversight projects are definitely needed. He also mentioned that close relation among government, utility, and manufacturer is important. Dr. S. Matsuura, President of Nuclear Safety Research Association, presented the experience on JPDR (Japan Power Demonstration Reactor) in JAERI, which was successfully operated in 1963. He mentioned that a lot of useful information on nuclear reactor technology had been obtained through its construction, operation, maintenance, modification, and decommissioning processes. He also mentioned that experience of JPDR is important, but it needs to take care of conditions which the experience is based on. Lastly, Mr. H. Uozumi, Senior Vice President of Hitachi-GE Nuclear Energy Ltd. mentioned from plant manufacturer's point of view that site infrastructure preparation and human resources development at construction & installation phase are important for a successful construction at site.

Session 3: Experiences of Introducing the First Nuclear Power Plant and Necessary Infrastructure Development in China

Experience of nuclear power introduction in China was presented by Prof. Wu Chunxi, Vice President, China Institute of Nuclear Information and Economics. He mentioned that great attention had been paid to training of certified experienced staffs, and also mentioned that operators, commissioning and maintenance staffs, especially technical leaders of them, were sent abroad to have training in a real NPP in order to obtain the real experience. He also mentioned that measures to ensure smooth developments are 1) organizations, 2) personnel training, 3) manufacturing capability, 4) fuel cycle industry, 5) nuclear safety, and 6) cooperation between enterprises and local government, and public communication.

Session 4: Experiences of Introducing the first Nuclear Power Plant and Necessary Infrastructure Development in Korea

Experience of nuclear power introduction in Korea was presented by Mr. Chae Song-Suk, Member of Korea Nuclear International Cooperation Foundation. He introduced the experience of the first nuclear power plant, Kori unit 1, including the problems of the project structure, the difficulties of the financing, the difficulties of the project management, the difficulties of the quality assurance. And, he mentioned the following lesson-learned items; 1) turnkey contract approach would be preferable for the first NPP project in each country, 2) well-organized and experienced project management team should be selected, 3) proven technology and design should be selected, 4) training programs for local entities should be established and sufficiently implemented in advance, 5) experienced and qualified foreign advisors are essential in the pre-project phase.

Session 5: Current Status of Nuclear Power Program and Roadmap for a first Nuclear Power Plant

Bangladesh, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam presented the current status of their national nuclear power programs and roadmaps for the first NPP. Target years for commercial operation of the NPPs are various (2014 - 2025) but well defined, and each country recognizes its present position of progress with regard to the IAEA Milestone Guideline (No.NG-G-3.1). NEPIO (Nuclear Energy Program Implementation Organization) or similar organization has been established or accepted in the countries above. Pre-feasibility study and site selection are now in progress.
Major challenges that the introducing countries have captured are as follows;
- Safety, security, and safeguard (non-proliferation)
- Government Policy and Position
- Human Resources Development
- National Infrastructure
- Technology & Engineering
- Financing
- Site selection and Environmental impacts
- Fuel cycle and radioactive waste management
- Public acceptance

Session 6: Roundtable Discussion

Mr. T. Ito made a lead-off speech in which a summary of the presentations of the Sessions 1 to 5, scope of discussion, role of FNCA cooperation, and points of discussion were included.
After the lead-off, following good discussions had been taken place among the participants.

[Questions to the experienced countries by the new comers]

(1) Language
Thailand (Mr. Namwong) asked what language should be appropriate for safety evaluation documents or regulatory documents on a nuclear power project. Korea (Mr. Chae) replied that English would be appropriate when a new comer embarks a first NPP. Necessary training should be done. Mother tongue would be preferable, if possible, but some time a trouble may happen. IAEA (Mr. Vincze) told that an appropriate language would be English during construction for communication between owner and vendor, but for licensing and operation, especially for communication in the control room, mother tongue should be considered.

(2) Local capability
Thailand (Mr. Namwong) asked how local capability of NPP operators could be confident. Malaysia (Dr. Zamzam) replied other industry such as oil & gas and airline industry have demonstrated good track records in Malaysia and can therefore be emulated by NPP operators. IAEA (Mr. Vincze) mentioned that dispatched operators abroad so as to be educated and trained with simulators and actual operating NPPs should be appropriate. Philippines (Mr. Tampinco) mentioned, on the contrary, that a new comer had better develop its own training program for NPP operators in domestic with assistance of foreign experienced countries. This is based on the experience of Philippines in which in the initial stage of the national program Philippines dispatched operators overseas to be certified by foreign regulatory bodies, but the operators needs to be re-certified under the regulation of Philippine. Besides, sharing information with other countries would be effective.

(3) Safety Review
Philippines (Dr. Dela Rosa) asked how safety was ensured even the early NPPs were constructed before a regulatory body was established, in China, Japan, and Korea. China (Prof. Wu) replied that in the case of Dayabay NPP, the project was a turn-key one so that all documents related to plant safety were created by French company, whereas a regulatory body already existed under Ministry of Nuclear Industry. So, France was responsible for the technical safety of the plant. Dr. Dela Rosa made a supplementary comment that the regulatory framework for the Bataan NPP adopted by the Philippine nuclear regulatory body was based on the standards and regulations of the US NRC.

(4) Site Selection
Philippines (Dr. Dela Rosa) also asked what were the siting criteria and how were the seismic and volcanic hazard issues addressed for site selection. Korea (Mr. Chae) replied that at the initial stage in Korea they didn't have enough knowledge on site selection so that Korea consulted with US.

[Questions to the new comers by the experienced countries]

(5) Project Management
Japan (Mr. Suzuki) asked that how each new comer is going to obtain well-trained project managers, since project management is very important in proceeding with the project. Malaysia (Dr. Zamzam) replied that outsourcing to a project management company was adopted in previous TNB thermal power plant projects e.g. JICA-funded PD1 and PD2 projects by TEPSCO. Session chair (Dr. Muhd Yunus) mentioned difference between a nuclear power project and a fossil one, and asked whether an owner should have responsibility of project management or not, even in the case of a turnkey project. Indonesia (Dr. Taryo) mentioned a BATAN's experience to collaborate with Bechtel to handle project management when the RSG-GAS Reactor and supporting laboratories were constructed in Serpong, Indonesia.

(6) Critical Issue
Japan (Mr. Murata on behalf of Mr. Uozumi) asked what would be critical issues in nuclear projects for each country. Indonesia (Dr. Taryo) mentioned that cooperation among relevant governmental ministries and agencies is important in response to the concern on its political issue by the participants.

(7) Financing condition
China (Prof. Wu) asked what would be an idea to make financing assured in nuclear projects for each country. China's experience to assure financing of the Dayabay project was to let Hongkong utility to hold 25% shares of the Joint venture, Moreover, more than half of generation of the NPP sells to HK.

(8) PA on radioactive waste management
Bangladesh (Dr. Chowdhury) asked how PA (public acceptance) would be achieved for radioactive waste. Malaysia (Dr. Zamzam) mentioned that they have some objections by anti-nuclear individuals, as reported in local newspapers and blogs. Japan (Prof. Kondo) mentioned that it would be difficult to find good way but to do their best. Japan (Dr. Machi) mentioned that it would be necessary to show benefit of nuclear power to local people, from the environmental and energy security point of view.

Session 7: CDM Case Study

Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippine, Thailand, and Vietnam presented interim reports of their case studies for a NPP construction for application of the CDM (Clean Development Mechanism). Calculation results using an Excel spread sheet were reported by Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand, in which values of Internal Rate of Return (IRR) with Certified Emission Reduction (CER) were estimated, with assumption of replacing a 1000 MWe coal fired power plant with a 1000 MWe NPP. Indonesia's case study showed that CO2 emission reduction is 6.2million ton/year, and that CER annual income is US$62million ($10/ton-CO2), and US$124million ($20/ton-CO2). IRR of 8.9% was increased to 12.05 - 15.02% with the CER. Malaysia's case study showed that IRR of 8% was increased to 11%. Thailand's case study showed IRR of 13% without CER. Calculation conditions such as CER income rate needs to unified in the next step, in order for comparison among the case studies. Possible actions after this case study were proposed by Dr. S. Machi, which were 1) to insist the inclusion of nuclear power in CDM at relevant sub-committee of COP, 2) to report the conclusion of the session to ministers relevant to energy and environment, 3) to report the conclusion of the session to FNCA Ministerial Meeting in 2009 for its endorsement.

   
 

Session 8: Status Report of Human Resources Development Database

Current status of Human Resources Development Database for nuclear power was reported by Dr. T. Yokoo, which had been in service since 2009 April. Registration of uses through focal persons of the member countries is now going on. Any comments by the users to make the database improved and any supplies of additional data or programs for personnel education and/or training will be welcome.

Session 9: Follow-up of the FNCA Project Review

Summary of FNCA projects review and future direction by coordinators was presented by Dr. S. Machi. Further strengthening the linkage with end-users of technology developed by FNCA, and current balance between nuclear power related activities and radiation/isotope application activities were also mentioned. Mr. Y. Chihara, Director of International Nuclear and Fusion Energy Affairs Division, MEXT of Japan, mentioned the following three items; (1) It is expected that the linkage between the developed-in-FNCA technologies and relevant end-users will be further strengthened. (2) It is considered by MEXT of Japan to support addressing necessary issues of infrastructure development for embarking a NPP, such as safeguards, radiation protection, and emergency plan. (3) It is also considered to strengthen the linkage of the nuclear researcher exchange program of MEXT and the FNCA projects, which leads to good synergy. Based on the presentations above, many comments and opinions were exchanged. With regard to possible balance between nuclear power related activities and radiation/isotope application activities, some countries embarking the first NPP made comments to enhance nuclear power related activities. But, some countries insisted that non-nuclear power application activities are also important and should not be reduced. In addition, further enhancement of communication and cooperation between IAEA and FNCA was commented by Mr. Vincze.

Session 10: Summary of the Study Panel, Preliminary Draft Report for the 10th Ministerial Meeting, and Plan for 2010 and 2011

Summary and major conclusions of this Study Panel were presented by Mr. T. Ito, which included a draft report to the 10th FNCA Ministerial Meeting. Plan of this Study Panel in 2010-2011 was also presented with possible agenda items for the 10th FNCA Ministerial Meeting. Several comments were made; 1) calculation conditions in the CDM case studies should be unified as much as possible, 2) safeguards should be included in the key items for peaceful use of nuclear power, 3) "Asian area" should be "Asian region" or "Asian countries", 4) "and accepted" should be added for Indonesia following to "established" in the PPT 5, the 3rd item of "Status and Roadmaps". Those comments were all accepted by the participants so that they are incorporated in the summary report.
The draft report to the 10th FNCA Ministerial Meeting is as follows;

The Panel has agreed,

(1) Establishing infrastructure for developing nuclear power is significant, based on the common understandings that nuclear energy is one of the most effective means to both ensure a steady energy supply and combat global warming, and that the importance of promoting nuclear power project abiding by safety, security, and safeguards, limiting only for peaceful purposes is reassured globally.

(2) Outcomes of the profound discussions based on the presentations 1) by those countries with operating NPPs on experiences relating to their infrastructure development, and 2) by those countries planning to embark introduce NPPs, will be very useful to the activities toward infrastructure development.

(3) Those countries planning to introduce NPPs should continue to make their best efforts to develop necessary infrastructure for nuclear power, using existing bilateral or multilateral frameworks such as IAEA-ANSN, ANENT, and so on. Experienced countries with operating NPPs should give assistance to the planning countries for their infrastructure development, if necessary.

(4) The outcome of this panel should be made best use of, after this panel meeting, in order for efficient and effective infrastructure development.

(5) To abide by safety, security, and safeguards in developing nuclear power, is indispensable. Both planning and experienced countries will make best efforts to keep the function of safety and security without falling into complacency.

(6) Nuclear power generation can play a very important role to reduce CO2 emission, based on the tentative estimation of the CO2 emission reduction effect by nuclear power made by participating countries.

(7) FNCA database for developing human resources has been in service since 2009 April. Further improvement to establish an effective use of the database would be necessary as well as to update the contents of the database.

(8) Regarding the radiation application, it is necessary to further strengthen the linkage with end-users of technology developed by FNCA, so as to make use of the technology in order for contribution to socio-economic development.

(9) Based on the conclusion of this meeting, the FNCA ministerial meeting is expected to discuss policy issues with regard to further strengthening the use of nuclear power in Asian region. Besides, Korea mentioned its welcome for the other member countries to participate in the 2nd meeting of this study panel, which would be held in Korea next year.

Closing Session

Secretariat announced three items; 1) the first draft of Chairman's Summary of this meeting would be issued no later than Aug. 7, 2009, 2) submittal due date of the final reports of CDM case studies by FNCA member countries should be Sep. 30, 2009, 3) delivery due date of further detailed agenda items for Ministerial Meeting would be Oct. 15, 2009. A closing remark was made by Mr. T. Ito, and the meeting was successfully closed.
