The Arktika, Russia’s latest nuclear-powered icebreaker, sailed from the Baltic Shipyard in St. Petersburg last week, bound for the Murmansk seaport. The voyage is scheduled to take approximately two weeks, during which time the vessel will be tested “in ice conditions,” according to Rosatom, Russia’s state-owned atomic energy corporation.

Emergency operating procedures (EOPs) are fundamental for coping with emergency and accident situations in nuclear power plants. Researchers at the Halden Reactor Project have developed a design concept including computer-based EOPs and other displays to support operators during emergency situations. The computer-based procedure system includes three displays: a symptom check display intended for monitoring EOP entrance criteria, a procedure selection and overview display, and a procedure performance display. A large-screen display provides shared information viewable for all operators in the control room. This paper describes the design, implementation, and initial testing of the displays in the Halden Man-Machine Laboratory. The original paper presented at the 10th International Topical Meeting on Nuclear Plant Instrumentation, Control and Human Machine Interface Technologies (NPIC&HMIT 2017) has been revised to include empirical results from a full-scope simulator study.
