Decommissioning Execution and Waste Management

Waste management is an integrated part of a decommissioning project and is one of the main drivers in cost efficient decommissioning. Dismantling activities define the structure and schedule of a decommissioning project. With efficient waste management the possible bottlenecks and delays can be avoided. Our streamlined processes can be utilised by our customers to avoid the challenges.
