In case of a severe accident, all the staff members of a nuclear power plant (NPP), members of the Emergency Response Organization (ERO) on site as well as operators in the main control room (MCR) are required to take necessary actions to mitigate the consequential effects of the accident. Therefore, Nuclear Engineering Ltd (NEL) has been implementing education and exercise for severe accident (SA) management both at nuclear power plants and Nuclear Power Division of Kansai Electric Power Company (KANSAI) since FY 2014. For the education of commanders who take a lead at the ERO in case of an accident, table top exercise is provided by using simulators developed by NEL, including functions to respond to a SA involving core melt. Continuous implementation of this education and exercise program is expected to enhance KANSAI’s severe accident management ability and their voluntary safety improvement activities in the future.
