APOSS is provider of consulting services in the field of safety and risk assessment located in Croatia. It was established in its initial form, as a private entrepreneurship, in 2005 and two years later, in 2007, re-registered as limited liability Company (“d.o.o.”, per Croatian registry).
APOSS was founded by and is fully owned and operated by Mr. Ivica Bašić and Mr. Ivan Vrbanić.
Mr. Ivica Bašić has an experience spanning over three decades in nuclear safety analyses, evaluations and verifications. His specialization includes deterministic analyses and simulations in support of design-basis evaluations and demonstrations as well as assessments of risk from severe accidents in nuclear power plants (NPPs). He has been a leader and participant in many projects aimed at enhancing nuclear safety in a number of countries. He was a member of the international effort in development of plant-specific symptom-oriented emergency operating procedures and severe accident management guidelines. Mr. Bašić has been a consultant to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on many occasions and received his M. Sc. degree in Technical Sciences in the field of Electrical Engineering from University of Zagreb where he is currently completing his Ph. D.
Mr. Ivan Vrbanić has more than thirty years of experience in conducting probabilistic safety assessments (PSAs) for internal and external initiating events and hazards in NPPs. He has been a leader and participant in many projects on risk and safety analyses, as well as their applications and reviews, initiated and performed to enhance nuclear safety in many countries. Dr. Vrbanić is a scientific collaborator in the field of electrical engineering to the University of Zagreb and has been a consultant to the IAEA on many occasions. He received his Ph. D. in Technical Sciences in the field of Electrical Engineering from University of Zagreb, Croatia.
APOSS provides services in the field of deterministic and probabilistic safety analyses, assessments and reviews, covering the design basis conditions, extended design conditions as well as risk from accident conditions. We are focused on, but not limited to, design and operation of nuclear power plants and associated systems, structures and processes. We also offer customized reliability assessments, risk assessments, as well as functional and deterministic safety assessments of technical facilities, systems and processes.
We offer customized training courses and workshops, either classroom-type or on-the-job, addressing different topics from these areas.
