Decommissioning Project


completed
Dismantling of the turbine and implementation of a Materials Management Facility

During the plant operating period, in the turbine building were located the turboalternator complex and the components of the thermal cycle (capacitor, preheater, etc.) for the production of electric energy.

completed
Decommissioning of Residual Heat Removal System

The Residual Heat Removal System served as a “heat sink” for the removal of residual heat in the reactor core when the activity was halted for maintenance works or re-fuelling.

completed
Demolition of the off-gas building

The Residual Heat Removal System served as a “heat sink” for the removal of residual heat in the reactor core when the activity was halted for maintenance works or re-fuelling.

completed
Asbestos reclamation in Emergency Diesel Generators

Emergency Diesel Generators are devices created to supply the nuclear power plant of electric power in case of interruptions in the general power supply;

completed
Primary Circuit Decontamination

The primary circuit of the reactor building is the recirculation and depuration system of the cooling water.

ongoing
Waste Route Implementation

The “Waste Route” is a structure connecting the turbine building, the reactor building and the auxiliary building, which is now under development.

ongoing

planned
Dismantling of the reactor building

The great part of the radioactivity of systems and components in a nuclear power plant is located within the reactor building.

planned
Dismantling of auxiliary buildings

The auxiliary building is one of the main complexes of Caorso nuclear power plant, and it consists of reactor buildings and turbine buildings.
