Fortum's turn-key solutions for nuclear decommissioning and waste management

Large share of nuclear power plant’s decommissioning costs are due to labour and decommissioning waste disposal. Fortum’s approach to decommissioning planning already considers the treatment solutions and disposal of nuclear waste at the beginning of  NPP operation. This enables the optimization of nuclear waste management operations and the minimization of decommissioning costs.
