In future, the Swiss Federal Nuclear Safety Inspectorate, ENSI, will be able to calculate the amount of heat dissipated from transport and storage containers by means of a new independent calculation tool. This has emerged from ENSI’s 2016 Research and Experience Report.
Projects in the ENSI Research Programme seek to clarify outstanding issues, establish fundamentals and develop the tools that ENSI requires to discharge its responsibilities. The projects also foster the skills needed for regulatory activities and encourage the development of independent expertise. Finally, international projects deliver results that Switzerland could not achieve on its own and at the same time encourage international networking. These are the main objectives of ENSI’s research strategy.
