Evening Lecture – The Reaction to the COVID-19 Virus in a Belgian NPP
Wim Van Rompay is Care Manager at Doel NPP and appointed as Corona-Coordinator since the beginning of the crisis. He will elaborate on the approach of the power plant on how to react to the virus: keeping it out maximally, preparing contingency-plans and how to prepare for ‘the worst case scenario’. Technical and social measures have been taken at short term, sometimes on or over the edge of the legal framework, but always in close connection with the Safety Authorities. At midterm, some major works had to be replanned, how is this done? At long term, what kind of measures are expected to last, and how is the NPP preparing on these.
