Division of Nuclear Power


Mr. Jong Kyun Park

"The objective of the Division of Nuclear Power is to enlarge the benefits of the peaceful uses of nuclear science and technology by providing engineering, technological and management support to interested Member States in the field of nuclear power, with special emphasis on the needs of newcomers and developing countries."


Jong Kyun Park
Director
Division of Nuclear Power



Introduction

The Division of Nuclear Power is responsible for providing integrated support for operating nuclear facilities and expansion of nuclear power programmes; technology development for advanced reactor lines and non-electric applications; assisting Member States considering new nuclear power programmes; and coordinating the activities of the International Project on Innovative Nuclear Reactors and Fuel Cycles (INPRO).

The Division is organized in two Sections and two Groups to implement its activities.
These are:

Nuclear Power Engineering Section (NPES)

NPES

NPES aims at supporting Member States expanding their nuclear programme and Member States with operating nuclear power plants to improve performance, management systems, human resource management, and technical infrastructure, through best engineering practices and innovative approaches consistent with global objectives on non-proliferation, nuclear safety and security.


Nuclear Power Technology Development Section (NPTDS)

NPTDS

NPTDS fosters information exchange, capacity building in Member States, and collaborative research and development for nuclear reactor technologies needed to meet the increasing energy demands of the 21st century in an economic, safe and sustainable manner.



Nuclear Infrastructure Development Section (NIDS)

NIDS

NIDS provides support through technical assistance, publications, missions and workshops to Member States who are considering the introduction of nuclear power and face the challenge of building the necessary national nuclear infrastructure for the first nuclear power plant.


International Project on Innovative Nuclear Reactors and Fuel Cycles (INPRO)

INPRO

INPRO helps to ensure that nuclear energy is available to contribute to meeting the energy needs of the 21st century in a sustainable manner by bringing together nuclear technology holders and users to consider jointly international and national actions that would result in required innovations in nuclear reactors, fuel cycles or institutional approaches.
