Waste Management in Decommissioning

Waste management is an integrated part of a decommissioning project and one of the main drivers in cost efficient decommissioning. Bottlenecks in waste management can lead to long delays in the project or expensive waste reprocessing. Our streamlined processes can be utilised by our customers to avoid the challenges.
