3 Responsible energy Teollisuuden Voima Oy World Association of Nuclear Operators

4 Responsible energy Teollisuuden Voima Oy Why did WANO begin? After the accident at the Chernobyl NPP in 1986, nuclear operators world-wide realised that international cooperation was needed to ensure that such an accident can never happen again. WANO was formed in 1989 by nuclear operators world-wide.

5 Responsible energy Teollisuuden Voima Oy The WANO Mission To maximise the safety and reliability of the operation of nuclear power plants by exchanging information and encouraging communication, comparison and emulation amongst its members.
