The extreme hazards such as large floods, earthquakes, fires or explosion may be lead to an extensive damage or large scale incident in NPP, for instance, loss of command and control, loss of most instruments or equipment which are used for accident mitigation. The typical situations are loss of control room and alternate shutdown capabilities, or loss of AC and DC power, or all of them. Extreme Hazards Mitigation Guideline (EHMG) is developed as the coping strategy for the above extensive damage situations according to the requirements of the characteristic of CPR1000 NPP and the modifications implemented after Fukushima accident. The technical scheme and frame of EHMG includes two modules: EH-IRs (initial response) and EH-MGs (mitigation guideline). And then based on the typical accident analysis, the critical diagnostic parameters and mitigation strategies were made for the EHMG. EH-IRs contains the following contents: Rebuilding the command and control, Off-Site and On-Site Communications, Initial Operational Response Actions, Initial Damage Assessment. EH-MGs contains the following strategies: Manually operating auxiliary turbo pump, Manually depressurizing SGs and injecting into SG, Alternate makeup to RCS, Controlling containment conditions, Alternate Makeup to Spent fuel pool, Alternate Makeup to water storage tank, Containment flooding and so on. The strategies in EHMG can cover both prevention and mitigation phases of severe accident. The first EHMG in China has been validated and implemented in Hong Yan He NPP in September, 2016.
