Our decommissioning service: effective, efficient and reliable

On the basis of the knowledge and experience gained in our own projects, we develop strategies and concepts for the decommissioning and dismantling of nuclear power plants together with our customers and accompany them in their implementation. Our customers include operators and research institutions in Germany and Europe.

Challenges

Waste and residual material categories

Non-radioactive residual materials and waste
Radioactive waste
Recyclable materials, conventional residual materials
Waste requiring specific approval for free release
Low and intermediate level radioactive waste
e.g. operating waste, radioactive waste from the dismantling work
Highly radioactive heat generating waste
especially spent fuel rods from power operation
Proportion of the total dismantled mass of an EnBW nuclear power plant
Slight differences depending on the power plant
Not relevant for the decommissioning
around 96-98%
around 1-3%
around 1%
