Optimization of radiation protection at nuclear power plants
Olli Vilkamo (edt.)
Doses to workers at the nuclear power plants in Sweden and
Finland are generally low. The main causes of this situation
include appropriate design and lay-out as well as successful
operation of and radiation protection at the Nordic plants.
It was investigated whether the optimization principle
recommended by the International Commission on Radiological
Protection is being applied at the Nordic nuclear power
plants or can its use be extended. The report summarizes
the main results of the study.
