    Abstract

    The Finnish Nuclear Power Plant Safety Research Programme The SAFIR2014 Steering Group, responsible of the strategic alignments of the programme, consisted of representatives of the Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority (STUK), Ministry of Employment and the Economy (MEE), Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd (VTT), Teollisuuden Voima Oyj (TVO), Fortum, Fennovoima Oy, Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT), Aalto University (Aalto), Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation (Tekes), Finnish Institute of Occupational Health (FIOH) and the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (SSM). The research programme was divided into nine areas: Man, organisation and society, Automation and control room, Fuel research and reactor analysis, Thermal hydraulics, Severe accidents, Structural safety of reactor circuits, Construction safety, Probabilistic risk analysis (PRA), and Development of research infrastructure. A reference group was assigned to each of these areas to respond for the scientific guidance and to supervise the projects in the area. Research projects of the programme were chosen on the basis of annual call for proposals. The annual volume of the SAFIR2014-programme in 2011-2014 was approximately 10 M and 70 person years. Main funding organisations were the Finnish State Nuclear Waste Management Fund (VYR) with over 5 M and VTT with nearly 3 M annually. In 2014 research was carried out in 45 projects. The research in the programme was carried out by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd, Lappeenranta University of Technology, Aalto University, University of Jyväskylä, Finnish Meteorological Institute, Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, and Finnish Software Measurement Association FISMA. A few subcontractors also contributed to the work in some projects. This report gives a summary of the technical results of the SAFIR2014 programme from the entire programme with emphasis on the results achieved during the years 2013-2014. The results obtained during the years 2011-2012 have been reported in detail in the Interim Seminar Report.
