[en] The international press has recently given a great deal of attention to 'moratorium' on nuclear power said to have been enacted in Sweden. Most of the press notices, however, do not give a correct picture of the decisions actually taken. As a part of its budget debate, the Swedish Parliament discussed Sweden's energy policy and its future plans for nuclear power, which now call for about one half of the total electric energy in the country to be produced by nuclear plants by 1985. The Parliamentary Industrial Committee had reviewed the subject and given a recommendation that 'no decisions for further extension of the nuclear plant construction programme be taken until the Parliament had received new information on research results and development trends'
[en] Some countries like Italy or Kazakhstan have given up nuclear power but others (Viet-Nam, Bangladesh, Egypt, Turkey) have the willingness to enter the nuclear world to sustain their development while complying with their environmental obligations. Others like United Arab Emirates, Belarus have their first reactor being built and other countries like France, Finland, United States, Slovakia, Brazil, Pakistan, India, Taiwan, South-Korea, China, Russia, Ukraine are reinforcing their reactor fleet by building new reactors. A total of 62 reactors is being built throughout the world with 22 in China. New construction of reactors, the dismantling of decommissioned installations and the integration of nuclear power in new economic models make the future brighter for nuclear industry. (A.C.)
[en] This report discusses how to perform a coupled, seismic and flooding, multievent risk-informed analysis. Presented in the following sections are the need for multievent risk-informed analysis, the tools needed to perform the analysis, and an example of solving a demonstration problem.
[en] The author makes known his opinion on the forthcoming polls in Switzerland on energy politics. He regards the suggested energy article as an useful instrument for Switzerland's energy politics. According to his opinion the two referendums, demanding Switzerland's back-out from atomic energy, are to reject. Without nuclear energy a large gap in Switzerland's electricity-supply would appear. In his opinion, nuclear energy delivers an important contribution towards the mastering of the CO2 problem
[en] The context in which this paper is set down concerns nuclear power, and this paper complements a number of more specialist treatments of aspects of the subject. Although it is, in consequence, perhaps to be expected that the discussion given would be specifically for a nuclear power plant the principles and methods of working involved apply equally to all kinds of power station projects though the actual fields of specialisation of team members, and the topics.of major discussion may vary from one project to another.
