The development and management of nuclear safety strategies and related technologies should primarily be the responsibility of NPP operators. This was stated by the CEO of the World Association of Nuclear Operators (WANO) Ingemar Engkvist in his video address to the attendees of the conference «Nuclear capabilities for the country’s development» held on November 22, 2021 in Kyiv on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of SE NNEGC «Energoatom».

Likewise, Mr. Engkvist reminded of the joint commitment of NPP operators to support each other so that by 2030, we will see an industry which is even more healthy than it is today. «The operators should lead the safety development. Should not be regulators, not governments, not public or media. We as an industry should lead», he assured.

According to the head of WANO, Ukraine has all the conditions and prerequisites to progress on the way to nuclear generation excellence.
