This paper describes ageing management activities for Long Term Operation (LTO) of components of Kozloduy NPP EAD. The stages of LTO Project are: Stage 1 - implementing a comprehensive assessment of the actual condition of the equipment; Stage 2 - providing of a Complex Analysis; Stage 3 – licensing of Plant Life Extension (PLEX) for long-term operation (LTO). The main activities are assessment of actual condition of the equipment and building; review of methods for control (non-destructive), examination and monitoring; assessment of effectiveness of methods; necessity of additional control/ examination/ service. The paper describes some mechanisms of degradation of mechanical properties, methods for control and criterions for their effectiveness.
