ABSTRACT
Changes of the frequency and intensity of storms, tornadoes, river floods, flash floods, extreme temperatures and droughts affect the operability and efficiency as well as the safety the nuclear power plants. Response to extreme hydroclimatic events depends on the features of particular hazards, e.g., predictability, possibility and time available for the protective actions, potential for causing cliff-edge effects and the possible combinations of events. Effective protection against the adverse effects of the hydroclimatic extremes can be ensured by proper definition of the design basis that compensate the potential changes of the extreme values and their frequencies due to climate change. In the paper the vulnerability of the nuclear power plants with respect of hydroclimatic extremes is analysed. The considerations in the paper are illustrated by the case of the Paks Nuclear Power Plant, Hungary.

Keywords: nuclear power plant, vulnerability, safety, hydro-meteorological extremes, climate change
