Industrial Complex for Solid Radwaste Management (ICSRM) at Chernobyl NPP
With the handover to the customer in April 2009, NUKEM was the first (and until today only) western contractor to finish a waste treatment project at the Chernobyl location.
After an international tendering process NUKEM was awarded to build the Industrial Complex for Solid Radwaste Management (ICSRM) at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. The Contract is a turnkey contract. It governs the design, analyses, licensing support, fabrication, assembling, testing, inspection, quality assurance, documentation, delivery, erection and pre-commissioning of structures, foundations, systems, materials, equipment, components, services and other required items, of the ICSRM, to support the safe retrieval, receipt sorting for all radwaste, processing and disposal for solid Low and Intermediate Level Waste Short-Lived (LILW-SL), and temporary storage and disposal for Low and Intermediate Level Solid Waste Long-Lived (LILW-LL) and High Level Waste (HLW), which are currently stored on the ChNPP site or will be generated during the decommissioning operations.
