Fortum's expert knowledge in Waste Management
We at Fortum provide solutions for the whole waste lifecycle of an NPP, based on what we also apply ourselves. In our Loviisa NPP, the plants liquid waste is solidified into cement and packed into concrete barrels. The solidification is designed to process low- and intermediate-level liquid waste generated during the operation and decommissioning of the two-unit Loviisa plant. This waste primarily consists of ion exchange resins used in the purification of process water as well as sludge from the bottom of the evaporator concentrate tanks. This waste is then taken to the LILW-waste repository below the plant site alongside all of the other LILW waste created during the operation and, in the future, decommissioning of the plant. The spent nuclear fuel is also stored on the site at our wet pool interim storages.
See more details below on Fortum’s waste related concepts, as well as the services we offer related to solidification, interim storage and different types of repositories (underground and near surface).
