What types of protection are available for nuclear power plants against the effects of external hazards?

There are four main protection methods, which are as follows:

  • Design of essential equipment and structures to withstand hazards;
  • Physical protection of the plant against the effects of a hazard, for example, by ensuring that it is suitably housed;
  • Redundancy, diversity, segregation, and separation of essential systems;
  • Systems to mitigate the effects of hazards, such as fire-fighting equipment.
