Nuclear Decommissioning

Fortum and Uniper start cooperation in nuclear decommissioning and dismantling services

Services for Nuclear Decommissioning

For more than 30 years, Fortum has been a forerunner in nuclear decommissioning and waste management. Fortum and Uniper have combined their experiences and competences related to nuclear decommissioning and started to offer services under joint Fortum Uniper Nuclear Services (FUNS) cooperation.
We are in an active role in the Nordic decommissioning projects. Together with our partners, we cover the full value chain of a nuclear decommissioning project, including waste management and disposal related services.
