Alarming results on geological risk at the Paks NPP site


The results of the peer reviewed report “NPP Paks II: Paleo-seismological assessment of the Siting Report and the Site License with respect to fault capability” showed that evidence for a capable fault at the site was swept under the carpet. According to the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) guidelines, the Western European Nuclear Regulator’s Association WENRA’s rules as well as the Hungarian regulations, the site license for Paks II should not have been granted in 2017.
