ORIENTATION AND PROCESS

 

RIGOROUS AND ROBUST SAFETY CASES FOR NEW NUCLEAR FACILITIES 

 

Last Energy acts as a trusted resource to help companies build out the processes and personnel needed for regulatory compliance. We'll set expectations around what is needed along with creating a project plan to manage all timelines and milestones in the licensing application process.

 

Built upon proven nuclear regulatory frameworks, we provide guidance on all facets of licensing to ensure rigorous and robust safety cases for new nuclear facilities. We'll help document process, roles and responsibilities for the construction, commissioning and operation of nuclear plants to facilitate a swift licensing process.

EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS

 

MINIMIZE THE LIKELIHOOD AND IMPACT OF EMERGENCY EVENTS


Last Energy leverages its expertise in the space to help new nuclear companies develop robust emergency preparedness plans. We'll define emergency response goals in addition to decision-making criteria used to assess situations. We conduct fault analysis including design-basis analysis, probabilistic safety assessment (PSA), severe accident and assurance analysis which serve the basis of emergency preparedness plans.

 

Our team of experts will also help develop emergency response protocols including notifications for unusual events and site area or general emergency alerts. We take emergency preparedness one step further and help develop the protocols for maintenance, inspection and testing of components within nuclear facilities to minimize the likelihood of problems occurring.

TECHNICAL SUPPORT

 

THOROUGH TECHNICAL REVIEW

 

Last Energy provides robust support to review and secure engineering analysis of all aspects of a nuclear facility's life cycle. We focus on technical studies and modeling to design structures, components, and processes for reliability and include aging and degradation protocols to minimize risk. Our team will also assess the layout and access of power plants along with analyzing the impact of human factors and control systems.

 

Additionally, we'll provide a thorough technical review of accident management and emergency preparedness protocols as well as conduct a design-based fault analysis and PSA. Our team of experts can help design critical processes that maintain radiation protection and allow for the safe control of nuclear matter and waste management.

APPLICATION CONSTRUCTION

 

MINIMIZING DELAYS IN THE APPLICATION PROCESS 

 

Constructing appropriate responses for a licensing application can be a complex process. At Last Energy, we provide guidance on all aspects of application construction, including response development and reviews, to create a comprehensive application. We leverage our knowledge of operational best practices, emergency preparedness strategies and more to craft the responses and documentation necessary for each section of a nuclear license application.

 

We also assess responses and offer recommendations across different facets of the application. Our team of experts can provide technical reviews on reactor design, security requirements, decommissioning strategies and more. We'll help make sure your application is complete and thoroughly addresses all of the questions to minimize delays in the licensing process.

WASTE MANAGEMENT & DECOMMISSIONING

 

MANAGE THE FULL LIFE CYCLE OF NUCLEAR PROJECTS 


Last Energy will assess and help develop waste management and transport protocols for radioactive material. Our protocols are based on well-established regulatory frameworks and operate within the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) regulations for the safe transport of radioactive material.

 

We also develop decommissioning strategies, plans and programs to remove radioactive material from the site in an efficient and responsible manner. We rely on international decommissioning standards and proven technical approaches to reduce residual radioactivity to levels that permit the release of the nuclear operating license.
