MINSK, October 3. /TASS/. A regulatory mission of the UN nuclear watchdog, the IAEA, has started working in Belarus, the country’s state nuclear regulator (Gosatomnadzor) said on Monday.
"For nearly two weeks, more than 20 experts led by Petteri Tiippana, director general of Finland's Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority, will be examining various aspects of the nuclear monitoring and interviewing representatives of state management bodies and supervising agencies," a source in Gosatomnadzor said.
The experts of the Integrated Regulatory Review Service (IRRS) mission will visit the construction site of the Belarusian nuclear power plant, the Sosny Unified Institute for Energy and Nuclear Research, the Isotope Technologies company and other sites.
IAEA Deputy Director Generals Mikhail Chudakov and Juan Carlos Lentijo intend to visit the Belarusian nuclear power plant construction site in 2017, the source added.
The Belarusian nuclear power plant is a project to build a VVER-1200 type nuclear power plant 18km away from Ostrovets, the Grodno region, with Russia’s assistance. The power plant will consist of two energy units with the total output capacity of up to 2,400MW.
