Waste A and B Dismantling

​​State: Ongoing 
Period: 2014-2025

The Project involves the dismantling of the underground collection system for radioactive effluents in OPEC-1, called “Waste A and B”. 

The system consisted of collection tanks and associated installations. During the activity of the plant, the tanks were used to collect radioactive liquids resulting from the hot cells (spaces specifically built and equipped for the safe manipulation of fuel). 

In the period 2014-2015, the dismantling was implemented on the underground system; upon completion of this operation, all the removed equipment (pipes, tanks, residual liquid) have been shipped to Nucleco for final treatment and conditioning. The remaining structures have been radiologically mapped. Further operations, involving the demolition of civil underground works, are currently under development.
