Scientific and technical support

VNIIAES is working in all areas of scientific and technical support for the operation of nuclear power plants, which were identified during the inception of the institute in 1979, successfully mastering new directions.

The Institute participates in all aspects of the activities of nuclear power plants, working in close cooperation with industry counterparts: chief designers - OKB Gidropress, OKBM Afrikantov, designers - AEPs, as well as the Kurchatov Institute, which serves as the supervisor for a number of blocks.

VNIIIAES capabilities for scientific and technical support at different stages of the NPP life cycle

In the modern world, the scientific and technical support of the operation includes the functions of engineering and technical support, ensuring the maintenance of the state of operation at the level of the set goals for safety and efficiency, plus the search for solutions (including R&D) for problematic areas of operation, which makes it possible to issue recommendations along the way of improving the safe and efficient operation of nuclear power plants. The result of this work is the prediction and resolution of problem areas even before the occurrence or manifestation of deficiencies in operation.
