  8. 8. Open Questions . . . . in determining operating model and support requirements: How much knowledge must the owner have and how much can the plant designer be relied on? What information does the public need and when? How much work can be done locally? What is the best contracting and finance model?

  9. 9. Supporting the NNB project through 3 core skill-sets • IAEA Status Assessment • • • • • • • • Licensing & Regulatory Support • • • • • • Nuclear Safety Management Human Resource Development Stakeholder involvement Site & supporting facilities Security & physical protection Safeguards National position Project feasibility, risk Funding and financing reduction, integrated Legislative framework support: pre-licence, licensing, permits &, Regulatory framework Regulatory relationships Radiation protection Electrical grid Emergency planning Programme Management Engineering & Industrial Office Safety Case involvement • Procurement Project / Nuclear and nonProcurement/ nuclear engineering, Construction technical and subject Management & matter experts Controls 99 • Environmental protection • Nuclear fuel cycle • Radioactive waste

The product / service includes  Nuclear Power Plant  Fuel and fuel cycle  Waste management  Decommissioning provisions  Independent technical support and services  Through-life support from the original supply chain  Operation and Maintenance arrangements  Grid Connection  Associated Development  Security arrangements  Environmental studies and analysis
  11. 11. 3 core skill-sets through lifecycle Flexibility to service each step of the project lifecycle EPC / implementation resources Thick IC NNB support resources Thin IC 1111
  12. 12. Summary • NNB projects internationally have many different configurations of client, suppliers and (therefore) differing support requirements • All NNB stakeholders must have a basic capability and capacity across the three critical core skill-sets • NNB Support service organisations must be adaptable; to project procurement strategy, phases of the project, client thick/thin ‘IC’ role • IC role needs support to varying degrees during the transients in the project lifecycle; interface management is a critical focus area • Flexibility is needed within the NNB support service provider and the commercial arrangements to optimise delivery of the service • Its important that local suppliers are embedded into the NNB support Presentation title - edit in Header and Footer infrastructure; lasting legacy in operations 12 12
