Summary Report of the 2nd Panel Meeting
“Study Panel on the Approaches toward Infrastructure Development
for Nuclear Power”

July 1 to 2, 2010
Grand Hilton Seoul, Republic of Korea


1. Overview
The purpose of this study panel was to serve as venue for the sharing of practical information, experiences and lessons learned (LL) among senior officials and experts from the region to build sound national nuclear infrastructure to enable efficient, safe, secure construction & operation of nuclear power in the member states of FNCA for the sake of peaceful use of nuclear energy. Following the first panel meeting in 2009, the second meeting was held on July 1 and 2, 2010 in Seoul, Republic of Korea.
In the meeting, 4 topics were discussed including 1) Project Management, 2) Local Procurement & Local Vendors, 3) Role of Nuclear Research Institute, and 4) Fuel Cycle and Waste.
 
2. Project Management
(1) Experiences and LL from three nuclear power operating countries indicated the importance of the following points for successful project management;
-   Strategic planning of nuclear power in accordance with the economy development
-   Relationship with local community and pre-project preparation at site
-   Management and control skill of the project management
-   Importance of EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) company and key principles of EPC to keep in terms of safety, quality, schedule and investment risk
-   Finishing engineering activities before the start of construction
 
(2) Current status of discussion with the member states of the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) for implementation of an IAEA proposal made to the member states including project management support was discussed.

Co-chairpersons of the Meeting: Dr. Akira OMOTO (Left), Commissioner of Japan Atomic Energy Commission (JAEC), and Mr. SHIN Jae Shik (Right), Director of Atomic Energy Cooperation Division of Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MEST) of Korea

3. Localization
Experiences and LL from three nuclear power operating countries were shared including experience of short time for completion of localization, evaluation of bids and supply chain management. It was indicated that survey of local industry capability, setting goals for localization and setting a criteria for selection of area/component from early stage, willingness of local industry would help successful localization.
 
4. Country specific status
- Presentations revealed that 6 countries (Bangladesh, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam) are considering start of operation of the first nuclear power plant within 2015-25 time frame. Only Vietnam is currently considered in the phase II of planning stage according to the definition of the IAEA Milestone document.

Phase I:    A time period of consideration before decision is made to launch nuclear power program
Phase II:   A time period for preparatory work for the construction of the first nuclear power plant
Phase III:  A time period for construction and commissioning of the first nuclear power plant
 
- Country specific status and facing challenges were shared, among which Human Resource Development (HRD), siting, public acceptance, delay of government decision to launch nuclear power program were noted.
- Key findings from the IAEA’s INIR (Integrated Nuclear Infrastructure Review) mission reports were shared by Indonesia and Vietnam and this sharing was highly commended for their openness and confidence building with the neighbors.
- In order to meet the growing energy demand in a timely manner, Malaysia is considering a fast track approach in which declaration of nuclear power program is accompanied by selection of Supplier.
- The issue of harmonization of safety standards for nuclear power in the region was raised in the light of sensitivity of safety issue and that such harmonization had started in WENRA (Western European Nuclear Regulators' Association)*. This issue needs to be discussed further. The IAEA may assist in coordination of this activity.
WENRA is a network of Chief Regulators of EU countries with nuclear power plants and Switzerland as well as of other interested European countries.
 
5. The role of Research Institute in nuclear power program
The roles played by BATAN (Indonesia), JAERI (Japan) and KAERI (RoK) were discussed. It was recognized that Research Institute plays important role in helping NP program through development of innovative technologies, such as establishing broad technical basis of nuclear energy and transfer of technologies to specific industry, support to NEPIO (Nuclear Energy Program Implementation Organization), the functions of TSO in support of siting and licensing review etc, radiation protection services, dissemination of objective information, waste management and HRD.
Importance of research institute in supporting NEPIO was emphasized.
 
6. Fuel cycle and waste
- Presentation given by an official from the IAEA discussed a) importance of considering fuel cycle and waste policy from the beginning of nuclear power program, b) key policy issues to be included (such as role of responsibility of each relevant organizations, goal of safety/security, export/import of waste, resources allocation were identified), and c) recommendation of collocation of nuclear power plants with facilities for waste management and spent fuel storage from the very beginning of siting. Also, options for spent fuel management and issue of multilateral / regional sharing of fuel cycle were discussed in the presentation.
- Regarding the regional cooperation in ASEAN+3 countries on nuclear fuel cycle and waste, recently held Malaysia and Todai (University of Tokyo) workshop (2010 May) was introduced.
- Potential of multilateral approach in spent fuel management was discussed.
 
7. The meeting recognized that newcomers could benefit significantly from the various IAEA support for nuclear infrastructure building including INIR mission.
 
8. The candidate topics of the 3rd study panel were discussed and the following candidates were raised; Licensing, Stakeholder Involvement, Potential Unique Added Value by FNCA to help establish sound infrastructure.
