Abstract: Economic deregulation of electricity markets in many countries has placed nuclear power plants (NPPs) in a new competitive environment where capital, operating and maintenance costs must be minimized. Optimization of the maintenance strategy, enhancement of the maintenance efficiency and monitoring the performance are becoming the key attributes to ensure the survival of nuclear utilities in the energy market. The need to collect relevant experience and suggest a consolidated system of performance indicators to measure the maintenance effectiveness was recognized by the Institute for Energy EC-JRC and research conducted aimed at suggesting such a system. The paper highlights the latest improvements to the system of maintenance performance indicators and discusses further steps and issues to be addressed in the course of the research on enhancing the effectiveness of maintenance at NPPs.
