Within the framework of the visit Mr S. Melhem participated in the 10-th International Conference “Safety Assurance of NPP with VVER” organized by ОКB “GIDROPRESS”.

Special session was implemented to study Russian computer code “KORSAR”, which was developed in FSUE “Scientific Research Institute of Technology named after A.P. Aleksandrov” and to discuss the code’s capabilities in conducting simulation of the neutronic and thermal-hydraulic processes in the elements of passive safety systems of nuclear facilities.

The implementation of this visit was an important step in establishing the mechanism of support in capacity building for nuclear infrastructure development for Jordanian nuclear power programme.
