Removal of the old discharge system for active effluents and reclamation of related areas

​​Status: Planned 
Period: 2019-2020

During the plant operation period, the discharge of active effluents coming from the treatment facility for radioactive liquid effluents, was implemented through a specific system channelled into the discharge pipes of the plant’s “sea-water circulation system”.

In the period 2014-2015, a new discharge line, adhering to the current safety standards, was created and used for liquid active effluents. In 2018, Sogin obtained an authorisation to remove, split and decontaminate the old discharge line. 

2020. The radioactive waste resulting from such operations will be reduced in size and stored in interim storage facilities, while other waste will be disposed by licensed facilities.
