World Nuclear Plant Controllers' Association Leader Visits Russia To Discuss Safety Efforts

Alexander Rumyantsev, Russia's Minister of Nuclear Power Industry, met at the negotiation table in Moscow with Zuck Pate, managerial council president of the world nuclear plant controllers' association, who is currently on visit to Russia. The conferees discussed a Russian programme to promote nuclear power plant safety, a personnel training programme for industrial projects subordinate to the ministry, and an international partnership programme for nuclear power stations with similar reactors, based in Russia and other countries, report Rosenergoatom concern PR. The world nuclear plant controllers' association brings together more than a hundred organisations which exploit nuclear power plants. Some countries have one such organisation each, as Russia with its Rosenergoatom, others more--for instance, Japan with five. The association disseminates nuclear plant knowhow, arranges partnerly mutual inspections, and organises symposiums to increase nuclear safety. Mr. Pate visited the Kola nuclear power plant yesterday to see its three units in action, the engine room and the training centre. He approved its technology, which keeps radiation within natural background limits.
