FAST Nuclear Emergency Tools (FASTNET)

About the project:
The FASTNET project is a four-years European project funded by the Euratom Research and Training Programme 2014-2018. This project has received funding from the Euratom research and training programme 2014-2018 under grant agreement No. 662284.

The objectives are:
– to set-up a severe accident scenarios database

– to qualify a common graduated response methodology that integrates several tools and methods to :
– evaluate the source term
– ensure both diagnosis and prognosis of severe accident progression
– make the connection between the FASTNET tools and others systems that use source term definition for further assessments (the International Radiological Information Exchange (IRIX) format will be used for data exchange between FASTNET tools and these systems used for consequence evaluations)

in order to implement in any emergency Centres the proposed solution for the management of emergency in all the operating nuclear power plant concepts (Pressurized Water Reactors (PWR) of Gen II and III; Boiling Water Reactors (BWR) of Gen II; VVER 440 and 1000; CANDU) and a concept of spent fuel pool facilities in Europe

– to propose through the project website an action of communication to the public of the emergency management approaches, measures and resources in Europe
