Hazard Verification for Nuclear Power Plant

Background

The Thyspunt site, South Aftrica, was a candidate for the construction of a new nuclear power plant. A site- specific PSHA was carried out within the framework of a SSHAC Level 3 process for this location. Using the OpenQuake-engine, the GEM hazard team implemented the hazard model created by the staff of experts involved in the project and performed independent analyses to demonstrate the correct implementation of the hazard model.
