Risk

  • Term is all inclusive, many components
      • Biological
      • Radiological
      • Financial
      • Corporate Liability
      • Others

Nuclear Liability Insurance Risk
  • $300 Million US Provided to Each US NPP Site
  • Protection Covers Operators & Suppliers Against Bodily Injury or Property Damage Caused by Nuclear Hazard
  • Losses Can Be Catastrophic or Non-Catastrophic
  • Claims Defense Costs Can Be Major Portion of Claim

Nuclear Liability Insurance Risk (Effluent Releases)
  • Increased Public Awareness of NPP Effluent Releases & Perception of Personal Risk
  • Public does not differentiate between Isotope of Cobalt and Tritium
  • 1 atom Co-60 ~ 1 atom of Tritium (perception)
  • NPP Releases Cause Harm ! (Perception)

Nuclear Liability Insurance Risk
  • Recent Global Risk Management Experience – Compliance with Applicable Jurisdictional Regulations does not always offer protection from future environmental liabilities
  • Facilities Can Mitigate Excessive Claims Defense Costs Through Evidence of Due Care and Proper Operation

Environmental Management
  • Groundwater Monitoring (pp 24-25)
    • Experience
      • underground piping breaches
      • pond liner leaks
      • above ground tank & SFP leaks
    • On and Off-Site GW Contaminations

Environmental Monitoring - Experience
  • Many sites installed wells to monitor for leaks to groundwater at ANI request.
    • ANI Recommendations Underwriting Adjustments
  • Wells provided indication of piping, pond, tank or SFP integrity breaches
