Development of NI stakeholders map

Stakeholder is a person or organization that influences the adoption of key decisions on a nuclear facility construction project and the development of a national nuclear power program.

The stakeholders’ map is a management tool that identifies the stakeholders, their interests, potential involvement in the project and the classification categories into which the stakeholders fall. Stakeholder maps are effective tools for project analysis. By correctly mapping stakeholders, the person in charge of a project can make sure that each person is adequately involved in project communication and decision-making. 

Stakeholder mapping for the national NI development is a four-step process:
1. Identifying groups, organizations and people who are the stakeholders
2. Analyzing stakeholder’s interests and potential benefits
3. Mapping the relationship between stakeholders and National nuclear program
4. Ranking stakeholders for NI development activities

Pre-assessment and audit

Having decided to embark on a nuclear power programme the country should realize that for safe and efficient development the country should not only define a schedule of NPP construction but also develop a schedule of nuclear infrastructure establishment in its context.
For that, one need to have an understanding of the current development level.

Planning NPP project implementation, a country needs to perform due diligence in order to assess all NI areas.
To accomplish this a recipient-country requires professional support and expertise.

We developed an online self-assessment NI checklist, which is based on IAEA recommendations and our best practices of projects implementation all over the world.
On request of our partners, our highly qualified experts assess the NI current state by interviewing stakeholders and visiting organizations involved in the nuclear power programme development and implementation.
As a result, based on self–assessment report and expert audit findings, together with the country-recipient we draft the roadmap of NI development including stakeholders’ management with an eye toward successful and sustainable project execution (time, quality, and budget).

Comparison of NI status quo with target model

Target NI model depicts the efficient requirements for safe nuclear facility operation.

Having conducted pre-assessment we are able to compare the stage each area of nuclear infrastructure with its ideal state and identify the gaps to be filled in.

Risk assessment

At the earliest stages of the nuclear project implementation, it is of utmost importance to take into consideration risks of immature nuclear infrastructure.

NPP project is exposed to multiple risks, which could be systemized through risk assessment process.
Prior to the construction of a nuclear facility, we provide our partners with our methodology of risk assessment within all NI areas classifying them by the following criteria:
- a risk probability,
- a risk impact,
- a risk owner (e.g. NPP Owner, NPP Vendor, Government, etc.),
- consequences for the NPP projects characteristics systemized in four groups: project costs, quality, content/scope and terms.

The results of the risk assessment process are included in the nuclear infrastructure development roadmap, which is a visualized map of activities to be made within certain timeframes in order to efficiently and timely implement the nuclear facility project.

Roadmap

After pre-assessment, audit and risk management have been conducted, we develop a Roadmap for Nuclear Infrastructure development.

The Roadmap is a visualised map of activities to be made within specific timeframes in order to efficiently and timely implement the nuclear facility project.
Taking into consideration the best practices, Roadmaps are also based on the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) milestones approach that presents the activities necessary for nuclear power programme development within 3 phases:
Phase 1: Ready to make a knowledgeable commitment to a nuclear power programme
Phase 2: Ready to invite bids/negotiate a contract for the first nuclear facility
Phase 3: Ready to commission and operate the first nuclear facility

Support of the national NI development

We provide our partners with continuous support that allows not only develop safe and efficient national nuclear infrastructure but also maintain it on the adequate level.
