    Abstract

    The paper summarises the main outcomes of the project carried out in the period 2011-2014. It is a continuation of the material published in the Interim Report of the SAFIR 2014 program (L. Fülöp et al., 2013), with a general shift from hazard prediction towards focus on qualification of systems, structures and components (SSC's). This shift resulted from the progress of the project. Still, some seismology related conclusions are refined compared to the previously published data, and this paper should be considered the definitive conclusion of the project. The paper briefly presents topic areas studied in the project: (1) preliminary description of high quality near-field data recorded in 2012 from the Kouvola earthquake swarm, (2) a ground motion prediction equation (GMPE) proposal for mid magnitude earthquakes and recommendation of GMPE's to be used for high magnitude events, (3) results of a deaggregation study focused to north of Finland, (4) results of sensitivity modelling for a generic reactor building subjected to earthquake loads expected in Finland and (5) challenges concerning equipment qualification. Conclusions are given briefly after each topic, but the reader is directed to the project reports for in-depth understanding.
