The Sogin Group, with over 20 years of experience, is
one of the first companies in the world that has faced the challenges of nuclear
deactivation and decommissioning (Decommissioning & Dismantling - D&D).
In Italy, Sogin is dismantling four nuclear reactors with three different
technologies - PWR (Pressurized Water Reactor), BWR (Boiling Water Reactor) and
Magnox (Gas Graphite Reactor) - and is carrying out the decommissioning of five
formerly ENEA research facilities related to the cycle of nuclear fuel.
The Sogin Group has two foreign offices in Moscow and Bratislava, and has always been involved internationally on three main routes:
• Development of relationships and collaborations with international bodies and foreign public and private operators, to promote the exchange of know-how applicable to the decommissioning of Italian nuclear plants;
• Commercial development with the acquisition of projects, studies, consulting and technical services on the dismantling of the plants, the management of radioactive waste, as well as on safety and radiation protection;
• Support to Italian institutions to comply with the provisions of international treaties and commitments; since 2005 the Sogin Group coordinates the activities envisaged by the agreement stipulated between the Italian Government and the Russian Federation under the Global Partnership program.
Over the years, a solid D&D strategy has been developed that covers the entire life cycle of the nuclear deactivation which includes the methodology, the design and the planning of the dismantling projects, the safe management of radioactive waste and the ionizing radiation protection.
In Europe, North America and Asia, the Sogin Group works on a variety of nuclear dismantling and radioactive waste management projects. The value of our know-how has allowed Sogin to carry out important activities in Armenia, Belgium, China, South Korea, the Russian Federation, France, Germany, Kazakhstan, Norway, Slovakia, Spain, Ukraine, and the European Commission's Research Centers of Ispra Varese and Karlsruhe.
