Transneft’s delegates led by Vice President Pavel Revel-Muroz visited the Kola nuclear power plant and conducted a meeting with the plant’s management. The meeting participants discussed the experience of introducing lean production principles as part of Rosatom Production System (RPS) as well as the evolution of safety culture and visited a liquid radioactive waste treatment facility.
The nuclear power plant in the Arctic has implemented a pilot project titled Developing the Culture of Communication and Trust in Safety Matters, which is being replicated at other Rosenergoatom's enterprises. The employees of the Kola NPP reaffirm year after year their leadership positions within the RPS - a system relying on the lean production principles that has already saved RUB 721 million for the NPP.
Mr Revel-Muroz thanked the representatives of the Kola NPP for the opportunity to visit their production site: “We keep improving our Company’s operations by introducing best sustainable development practices. At present, the main objective is to intensify the motivation and involvement of the staff in continuous production improvement processes, so learning about the fundamental principles and tools of RPS and exchange of views on developing a safety culture has been very useful. I appreciate your openness: you shared your vision of these projects’ development as well as your huge experience.”
