Nuclear Decommissioning and Waste Management

For more than 30 years, Fortum has been a forerunner in nuclear decommissioning and waste management. We are in an active role in the Nordic decommissioning projects. We have developed innovative solutions for radioactive liquid purification, waste solidification, interim storage of spent fuel and final disposal of low and intermediate-level radioactive waste. We will be amongst the first nuclear power companies to start the final disposal of spent fuel. See our product offering below and read more of our expertise.
