Probabilistic Safety Analysis (PSA) methodology is a significant supplement to the deterministic safety analysis in the nuclear power plant. PSA can be used to evaluate the NPP device change, equipment maintenance, in service inspection. The practicability of modifying sea water pump maintenance programme is evaluated in this paper by determining the initial event probability in fault-tree and modifying the PSA calculation model. Based on the evaluation results, the preventive maintenance of sea water pump and 6kv switch can be changed from executed in the plant overhaul to executed in the routine maintenance. This could make a great contribution in optimizing the NPP sea water pump maintenance program.
