ROMENEK 1/2022


In the period from June 6th to June 8th, 2022, the ELME team consisting of Tinkara Bučar, Branko Vodenik, Denis Glavič-Cindro, Sandi Gobec and Mitja Eržen participated in the exercise ROMENEK 1/2022 - maintaining preparedness for emergency monitoring of radioactivity in the Krško NPP area to provide measurements in case of general threat. The exercise was attended by members of the mobile radiology teams JSI (ELME), ZVD and Krško NPP. The purpose of these exercises is to perform and compare the results of measurements of dose rate and contamination in the environment, high-resolution gamma-ray spectrometry on selected samples and in-situ gamma-ray spectrometry. In addition, we practiced radio communication between the regional centre and the Krško NPP and the communication of measurement results by radio between members of mobile units. At the exercise, we demonstrated good comparability of results and adequate preparedness for an extraordinary event.
