Plans to open BelNPP's training center by year-end 2015

MINSK, 28 September (BelTA) – The training center of the Belarusian nuclear power plant (BelNPP) is scheduled for opening by the end of 2015, deputy chief engineer for personnel training at the BelNPP Vladimir Gorin said during the online conference hosted by the BelTA website on 28 September.

BelNPP's center will be equipped with all the necessary training simulators. It will be open to both young workers and experienced specialists.

Vladimir Gorin noted that the training center will have a full-scale nuclear power plant control room simulator. Those who work at NPP control rooms are responsible for the nuclear and radiation safety of the plant and for its stable and accident-free operation. All future BelNPP control room operators will undergo training with the help of the simulator.

“It is impossible to overestimate the importance of this simulator, as the professional skills of the operators who will be working at BelNPP's control room will depend on its use. I should say that well-trained personnel represent one of the key preconditions for safe and reliable operation of the plant,” Vladimir Gorin stressed.

In his words, the necessity to use the full-scale NPP control room simulator arises from the norms of the Belarusian and international law. Vladimir Gorin explained that this simulator is used for training nuclear power engineers around the world.

In accordance with the general contract for building the BelNPP, the training will be provided by instructors from the Russian Novovoronezh training center Atomtekhenergo. “These people have vast experience in training personnel for the nuclear power plants built using Russian projects in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Iran, India, China, Bulgaria, and Finland,” Vladimir Gorin noted.
