 Consortium Awarded Nuclear Waste Disposal Contract in Ukraine

The consortium of Brenk Systemplanung GmbH, DMT GmbH & Co., KG, TÜV NORD EnSys Hannover GmbH & Co. KG and Plejades GmbH – Independent Experts, was awarded a nuclear waste disposal contract in the Ukraine.
The aim of the contract is to improve the country’s handling of radioactive waste, the remediation of contaminated sites and the safe decommissioning of Ukrainian nuclear power plants. The main objectives are to support the Ukrainian state corporation Radon to establish an emergency response system for incidents and accidents with radioactive substances, setting up integrated, automated monitoring systems for radiation and environmental protection at Radon facilities, as well as assess and rehabilitate radioactive waste deposits resulting from decontamination work outside the current restricted zone following the Chernobyl disaster in 1986.
DMT GmbH & Co. KG and TÜV NORD EnSys Hannover GmbH & Co. KG will jointly lead the assessment of 50 waste deposits and rank them to help identify a possible pilot rehabilitation project, for which a complete remediation concept including safety report and tender documents must be created.
The project is part of the EU-funded Instrument for Nuclear Safety Cooperation, which is designed to support non-EU countries to improve nuclear safety.
