Rosatom signs training MOU with Bureau Veritas

27 June 2017

An memorandum of understanding (MOU) in the area of personnel training for nuclear power programmes was signed on 20 June  between Russian state nuclear corporation Rosatom’s Central Institute for Continuing Education and Training (Rosatom-CICE&T) and the global testing, inspection and certification services company Bureau Veritas. 

The MOU aims to foster cooperation in the field of research, education and training in nuclear science and technology. The organisations agreed to collaborate in areas such as the exchange of materials and lecturers, as well as distance learning. Rosatom CICE&T rector Iurii Seleznev said it was a milestone in the development of cooperation aimed at ensuring the conditions for timely and high-quality compliance with obligations of Russian companies for engineering, equipment supply and the construction of nuclear power plants in European Union countries, in particular Finland's Hanhikivi 1 plant.

“The Finnish customer requires quality management certificates for all participants in the NPP construction process. In this case, there is a need to train Russian contractors on a Quality Management System, accepted by the customer. Bureau Veritas conducts commercial training on programmes describing the specifics of European legislation, which can be used as a supplement to Rosatom’s, ” he noted.
