3.1.2. Interface With Partners (main 2016 agreements)

As part of the 3rd international "Nuclear Knowledge Management. Challenges and Approaches” conference, JSC ASE EC and Dassault Systèmes signed a cooperation agreement that would allow the Division to expand the use of the 3DEXPERIENCE information platform to create solutions within the PMC business based on Multi- D technologies for the needs of design, construction and operation of major capital objects.

As part of the XXth St-Petersburg International Economic Forum, the Engineering Division and IBM signed a partnership agreement to generate a comprehensive solution for NPP operation management based on the Multi-D and IBM Maximo information platforms. The agreement will complement the “IBM Maximo for Nuclear Power” process platform with the NPP information model generated at the design and construction stage. The main goal is to ensure the digital collection and transfer of data from the design and construction stage to the operation phase.

As part of the ATOMEXPO-2016 International Forum, JSC ASE and SAP CIS, (the Russian division of SAP SE, Germany), signed a Memorandum of Understanding on establishing the expanded cooperation. It focuses on exploring the possibility of working together to generate a prototype of the industry solution for NPP engineering and construction management taking into account the Division’s best practices on the SAP HANA platform.

As part of the 3rd "Integrated Knowledge Management Solutions” International Knowledge Management Forum, JSC ASE EC, the International Project Management Association (IPMA) and the SOVNET National Project Management Association signed a trilateral cooperation agreement.

3.1.3. Information and Communication

Interaction with stakeholders is carried out in all the Division’s regions of operation. The active work with customers, partners, local media, public and environmental organizations, authorities and other stakeholders is carried out in the format of regular meetings, forums, conferences, exhibitions, round tables and press tours to the Division’s NPPs.

The results of interaction with foreign stakeholders can be assessed as positive ones (the estimate is based on AtomSMI.ru data). The Division presents media statistical surveys on Russian and foreign media, Internet resources in which the Company's information field is reviewed on the weekly basis. Year 2016 resulted in the radical decrease of anti-nuclear articles in the media. The public declarations in respect of Russian nuclear technologies in general and the Engineering Division in particular became much more loyal.

Information Activities Management Plans for 2017:

  • building up of information activity, especially in terms the Division’s contribution to expansion of the portfolio of foreign orders, development of PMS services, implementation of Multi-D-based projects;
  • enlarging of the channels for information the target groups (through Internet, social networks), improving of the quality of the divisional content and the amount of information messages;
  • clarification work with opinion leaders, media representatives and other interested parties in order to prevent adverse interpretations of divisional events.

Meeting With Utilities Representatives

In July, the Novovoronezh NPP was attended by CEOs of Slovenske Electrarne Company (the main producer of electricity in Slovakia). The Slovak power engineers were interested in the advanced experience in construction and commissioning of the next-gen power units. The guests visited the Novovoronezh NPP training center and met with representatives of JSC Novovoronezhatomtekhenergo at the site of the NVNPP-2 state-of-the-art power unit.

In May, representatives of the French energy company EDF visited the Novovoronezh nuclear power plants. The EDF representatives were told about the history of the oldest in Russia commercial NPP, experience of upgrading the existing power units, distinctive features of the first Gen III+ Novovoronezh NPP-2 power unit, which is preparing for power start-up, as well as the current design and construction technologies.
