The preparation for decommissioning is a key issue for a successful decommissioning project. All units have specific features which need to be addressed for preparatory measures. All required safety functions are also established during the preparatory actions. Radiation protection measures are optimised and put into practice to minimize the dose budget. Plant safety functions will be updated to correspond the new facility state during the implementation. Successfully defined safety functions allow more efficient project execution without compromising safety.
Fortum’s approach to the preparation is to make strategy development as early as possible, as it creates boundaries for the whole decommissioning project. Fortum has a capability to support all pre-decommissioning activities to achieve timely and cost effective project, or a specific area such as training of personnel, procurement, waste management or cost optimisation. Well prepared decommissioning, including site logistics and waste routes, ensures safe and efficient decommissioning of a facility, and minimizes delays and undue costs.
