Senior PSA Engineer
Tractebel, part of ENGIE group has more than 150 yearsof experience and is one of the world’s largest engineering consultancycompanies.
With more than 60 years of nuclear experience, our high-levelengineering and consulting services offer added-value across the full lifecycleof nuclear installations, from design to decommissioning.
The working environme nt
The Department Nuclear Safety offersits expertise in licensing, regulatory compliance support and safetyassessment.
In thiscontext, Nuclear Safety is responsible for the development of probabilisticsafety assessment (level 1). These studies aim at modelling the behaviour of anuclear plant following different initiating events by using event trees andfault trees.
Coach engineers to performprobabilistic safety assessment in order to meet a.o. the regulatoryrequirements regarding the development of Seismic and Spent Fuel Pool PSA level1 (main references : EPRI 3002000709, the EPRI 1025294 and the EPRI 3002005289for SPSA;
EPRI 3002002691). Coordinate the activity between the differentstakeholders (fragility computations, system analyses, )
Coach engineers to update theexisting internal events models for all Belgian nuclear units (using RiskSpectrum PSA), taking into account :
Current status of the plant (experience feedback for the developmentof operating profiles, operating procedures, plant modifications, etc.).
The State of the Art.
Evaluation of the existing PSAlevel 1 models to evaluate their adequacy to perform PSAapplication
Support to the Operator in theuse of these models for various applications (assessment of plant modification,decision-making process, optimizing the training programs of operators, etc.).
