EASL - Seismic Assessment Methodology for the Beyond Design Basis Post-Fukushima Requirements for Systems and Components

Following the incident at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant in 2011, EASL was engaged by the client to provide support and expertise for enhancements to several systems and components that required improved resilience to the beyond design basis seismic event at the Hinkley Point C new build nuclear plant. EASL were requested by the client to produce a deliverable to document the seismic assessment methodology for these systems and components with the aim of ensuring that Hinkley Point C would not be at similar risk.
