The head of the IAEA, Rafael Grossi, presented a preliminary report on the results of the mission's visit to the Zaporozhye NPP. So, worst of all, he assessed the integrity of the station, which was violated as a result of hostilities.
Note that there are still IAEA mission workers at ZNPP, so the final report on the situation at the plant will be made public next week.
Grossi spoke about this at a press conference, presenting a table with measurements of a number of indicators related to the operation of nuclear power plants.
The second column is the full functionality of the security and safety systems. She is marked in yellow.. This means that most of the systems are working and in good condition.
The third is the working conditions for the staff. It is not completely marked in red, because the staff continues to work, and two power units are also functioning. Therefore, in general, the nuclear power plant continues to operate.
The fourth is the provision of electricity. She is also half red and half yellow. So, it was recorded several times when the electricity was either turned off completely or interrupted. However, when there was a complete power outage, the diesel generators were running normally. They produced energy for cooling power units.
Fifth - logistics supply chains at nuclear power plants. She's half yellow and half green. Given the military situation, the supply chains were interrupted, but there were no significant problems because of this at the station.
The sixth is the situation with the radiation background and the response to emergencies. It is half red and half green. The head of the IAEA reported serious obstacles and interruptions in work, but the systems are working.
The seventh is the reliability of communications with the regulator. She is yellow. This feature still happens with certain complexities.
Recall that on September 1, the IAEA mission visited the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant in Energodar, captured by the Russians.. IAEA Director General and Head of Mission Rafael Grossi said that he managed to see "key things" in the first hours of his visit to ZNPP.
After that, the IAEA mission left the station, leaving 5 of its experts there, who will continue their work.
