Insufficient organisational readiness to operate and maintain the plant
For a newcomer country or for a new design such as SMRs, achieving readiness to operate and maintain the plant needs long-term commitment and support from stakeholders. Failure to build up this capability has, in some cases, led to unnecessary delays in the commissioning of new units. It may also lead to a prolonged dependency on the plant vendor and external service providers, limiting the Owner-Operator’s latitude, and may have an impact on the safety, security, or performance of the plant.
