Risk analysis related to hazardous matter transportation by seaway near nuclear power plants

Development of a methodology
Context & Issues

EDF entrusted Artelia with the production of a methodology to assess the risks relating to hazardous matter transportation by seaway, common to all the nuclear power plant in France.

This methodology will be included in the next safety reassessments for the four nuclear power plants beside the English Channel, i.e. Gravelines, Flamanville, Paluel and Penly. The methodology takes into account the comments made by the IRSN on the previous versions.

For this study, Artelia was led to combine its skills in industrial risks acquired thanks to a long experience in offshore oil and gas industry, and its expertise in marine engineering, thanks to a transversal multidisciplinary approach.
