    The objective of the OTUS project was to improve emergency preparedness at the Finnish nuclear power plants with two specific tasks. The first is studying radiation levels in rooms and in the vicinity of the power plants and accessibility of them in case of a severe accident during maintenance and refuelling outage when radioactive substances can be transported into different parts of a nuclear power plant and its environment, because the lid of a reactor pressure vessel and different material transfer gates of a reactor containment building may be open. The second task was studying the effect of sea breeze on the dispersion of atmospheric discharges of the power plants during an accident and methods to assess the dispersion during such a specific weather condition.
