16 international experts were finding strong and weak point in the powerplant’s operation. The enterprise was being studied in 8 directions: administration, exploitation, repair, engineer support, exploitation experience, radioactive protection and personnel training.

The group of expert was headed by the engineer of the Kursk Powerplant Aleksandr Uvakin. He described the inspection as successful stressing the result was achieved mostly because of the good organization done by Ukrainian colleagues.
