Ensure a safe and efficient dismantling of nuclear power plants
Authorities, suppliers and operators must maintain safety and security at nuclear power plants (NPP) and other nuclear facilities throughout the entire plant lifecycle including the decommissioning phase. Therefore, it is essential to control and review the decommissioning concept and the resulting safety concepts for dismantling, handling, transportation and storage of radioactive materials.
Our TÜV SÜD experts provide direct support to help you engage with regulatory bodies as well as plan for nuclear decommissioning and handle radioactive decontamination safely. Authorities will benefit from a high-level view of a nuclear installation’s safety and reliability from a technical expert who is proficient in all relevant regulations and standards.
