The operator of the Belarusian nuclear power station has demonstrated a continued commitment to safety a year after the first unit was connected to the grid, but further operational safety improvement are needed ahead of the planned commercial operation of the second unit, an International Atomic Energy Agency team said.

The IAEA’s operational safety review team (Osart) on 29 October concluded a five-day follow up mission to the plant, carried out at the request of the government of Belarus, to evaluate progress made in addressing the findings of a pre-Osart mission conducted two years ago.

The Belarusian nuclear station, about 150 km northwest of the capital Minsk, consists of two 1,109 MW pressurised water reactors of the Russian VVER technology. One of them is operational while the other is under construction and scheduled for commercial operation in 2022.

Osart missions aim to review operational safety by assessing safety performance against IAEA safety standards. Teams of experts conduct the review and propose recommendations and suggestions for improvements. Pre-Osart reviews typically take place before first fuel loading.

Prague wants to build new nuclear plants to replace polluting coal facilities The tender for new units at the Dukovany site (pictured) could include the option of new reactors at Temelín. Courtesy ČEZ. The tender for new reactors at the Dukovany plant in the Czech Republic will include a non-binding option for more units at the Temelín plant, the Czech minister of trade and industry, Karel Havlicek, said in an interview with the Právo newspaper.

Mr Havlicek said the government could issue a tender to build another reactor at the Dukovany nuclear power station after the mid-October elections.

He added that if his populist ANO party wins the election “We will also start preparing for Temelín” He said including the possibility of new units at Temelín in the tender Is “a greater motivation for suppliers, and thus we are pushing even harder on the price”.

Czech state power company ČEZ has said it is planning to build one Generation III+ reactor at the Dukovany site, with a maximum installed capacity of 1,200 MW. However, the company filed for permission to build up to two new units. In 2014, ČEZ cancelled the tender for construction of two new Temelín units after it failed to get state guarantees for the project.

Czech President Miloš Zeman on 27 September signed into law the Act on Measures for the Czech Republic's Transition to Low-Carbon Energy and on the Amendment of Act No 165/2000 Coll On Supported Energy Sources (known as Lex Dukovany). The law, allows a state-owned company to purchase electricity from new nuclear plants at a fixed rate for at least 30 years, with the possibility of extension. The power will be resold on the wholesale market and any profit or loss translated into an adjustment to power bills, although the government said it will set an upper limit on any extra cost.

Nuclear energy, as an asset class, has the potential to report well against a wide range of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) data collection and accounting metrics, according to a new report from the Generation IV International Forum (GIF). This should allow nuclear energy to be considered as an investable asset class, thereby allowing nuclear companies and projects to access climate finance.
