PREPARING A DECOMMISSIONING PROJECT: Fundamentals, Objectives and Strategies

March 13, 2012 – 12:29 pm | 2 Comments

Decommissioning is the final phase in the life-cycle of a nuclear facility, and refers to the administrative and technical actions taken to remove, in part or in total, the facility from regulatory control. It is a complex process and requires activities such as decontamination, dismantling of equipment and demolition of structures, and management of the resulting radioactive wastes. The objective is to progressively reduce the radioactive inventory of the facility in a controlled manner, hence reducing the hazard while taking account of the health and safety of the operating personnel, the general public and preservation of the environment. The ultimate goal of decommissioning is unrestricted release or reuse of the site.
