4 Perspective Investment Projects Construction of the Central spent nuclear fuel storage facility of the Ukrainian NPP reactors of the VVER type Cost, investment sources and coverage: Contract between Holtec Int. and SE NNEGC Energoatom signed in The feasibility study was developed. In 2009 the Cabinet of Ministers Ukraine passed a Decree ontheonadoptionofthefs In 2009 it is planned to develop a design of the main container equipment and to prepare the main samples. Implementation Period: years of the date of the adoption by Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine of the resolution on changes into the Law of Ukraine On Decision Making Procedure for Siting, Design, Construction of Nuclear Installations and Facilities of State Value Intended for Radioactive Waste Management. 7 4

5 Perspective Investment Projects Construction of the Central Spent Nuclear Fuel Storage Facility of the Ukrainian NPP reactors of the VVER type Storage facility operation will allow to ensure the long-term maintenance of the spent nuclear fuel (SNF) of the Ukrainian NPP reactors of VVER type on the territory of Ukraine and to waive the removal of SNF to Russian Federation till the solution of the issue of the SNF reprocessing ( for the purpose of the reuse of the valued nuclear materials) or SNF disposal in the deep geological formations The storage design capacity must provide the containment of not more than fuel assemblies of the VVER reactors during a periodofnotlessthan100years 7 5

19 Phase 1 conditions General survey of potential sites, conducted View on self assessment 12. Site and supporting facilities Reportissuedandapprovedidentifying: (a) Requirements for nuclear power plant site evaluation; (b) Regional analysis and identification of potential sites; (c) Screening of potential sites and selection of candidate sites; (d) Comparison of candidate sites. The requirements and screening criteria ensure adequate protection of the public and the environment from the effects of ionizing radiation and other factors arising from nuclear installations and are consistent with the requirements IAEA Safety Standards Series No. NS-R-3[8]. Evidence that the NEPIO consultants used for nuclear power plant site selection are competent and have experience in this area 19

20 View on self assessment 12. Site and supporting facilities National requirements for nuclear power plant site: NP «General Provisions of NPP s Safety» (highest level document within the hierarchy of documents on NPP safety); NP Safety Requirements of Site Selection for Siting Nuclear Power Plant 20

21 View on self assessment 12. Site and supporting facilities Phase 1 condition Selected site(s) justified Nuclear power plant site selection report approved by the NEPIO, clearly demonstrating: (a) All of the candidate sites identified during the site survey have been evaluated in order to select the site(s) for the nuclear power plant; (b) The selected site(s) are acceptable from all aspects and, in particular, from the nuclear safety point of view; (c) To the noise and visual effects during the construction and operation of the future plant have been considered; (d) The selected site(s) do not disturb or limit the access to important archaeological objectives and do not modify the landscape unacceptably; (e) The selected site(s) do not affect individuals or communities, the government and local or regional organizations; The nuclear power site selection report contains plans for additional studies and site investigations that will need to be performed during phase 2 in order to complete and refine the assessment of plant site characteristics 21

22 View on self assessment 12. Site and supporting facilities The Ministry of Fuel and Energy of Ukraine has developed an NPP Site Cadastre with support of NNEGC Energoatom The cadastre is expected to be approved by the government in 2012, THEN The Energoatom governed by specific sites features will select a reactor installation type that can be deployed 22

23 Key issues need to be advanced for new site 12. Site and supporting facilities Phase 2 condition Detailed site characterization completed. Evidence that the site(s) identified in the BIS are owned/available for use to the organization issuing the BIS. Report demonstrating ranking of possible sitesandbasisofthechosensiteorsites. Evidence that the site(s) meets all siting requirements and the necessary characterization studies have been completed. 23

24 Key issues need to be advanced for new site 24

25 Selection of a NPP Design for new sites Construction of power units on new NPP sites requires that a most suitable unit design shell be selected Multiplication of that unit in future allows maximum cost effectiveness due to: Unification of the construction projects and their implementation procedures Equipment and construction cost reduction Increase of domestic suppliers involvement 25

26 Selection of a NPP Design for new sites Technical characteristics of a NPP are defined in IAEA Standards, EUR requirements and the state regulatory and legal documents. Activities underway on selection of a reactor installation design: Evaluation of design information offered by the leading NPP vendors Analysis of domestic suppliers capabilities to support the project implementation Investigation into the power grid demands and specificity of prospective NPP sites 26
