Safeguards Inspectors in Action

Producer: Louise Potterton, Video Editor: Petr Pavlicek

DATELINE: November 2012, Dukovany Nuclear Power Plant, Czech Republic

In November 2012, the IAEA conducted a ‘Physical Inventory Verification’ (PIV) at the Dukovany Nuclear Power Plant, in the Czech Republic, which is situated 170 km south east of Prague. This kind of inspection takes places after fresh fuel is loaded into a reactor core and the displaced irradiated fuel has been removed and transferred to the spent fuel pond. Dukovany is one of two nuclear power plants in the Czech Republic. It has two main production units, each of them contains two pressurized water reactors. The plant supplies around 20 percent of the total consumption of electricity in the country.
