NUKEM Technologies Signs New RadWaste Contract with the European Commission
NUKEM Technologies, the specialist Nuclear Engineering Company, has won a three-year contract to work with the European Commission in providing support to Power Plant and Nuclear Facility operators in the Ukraine to improve the overall Radioactive Waste situation in the country. The project is one of a number to be launched by the EC with the aim of ensuring a robust and cohesive strategy for the Ukraine, that will cover all aspects of radioactive waste generation, storage and remediation, as well as covering decommissioning activities, and the Chernobyl legacy waste.
NUKEM’s winning strategy centred on the companies in depth expertise of Radwaste issues, its long history in the Ukraine, as well as ongoing projects at a number of Ukraine NPPs.
Andreas Weichard, NUKEM’s Director Russia & Eastern Europe, said: “Securing this project with the EC is very important to us, as it enables NUKEM to bring our knowledge and experience to support Ukraine in developing the best approach to manage Radwaste for the foreseeable future. This is a unique opportunity to assist the EC as well as the Ukrainian Ministries, and NPP operators, in the development of a national strategy for Radwaste in Ukraine.”
