Cavendish Nuclear managed all stages of the Kozloduy decommissioning investment packages, from initial project acceptance through to final closeout. Engineering and design services provided included the development of a site decommissioning strategy and preparation of technical specifications.

Six initial projects were managed as a single programme to optimise the interfaces between them and ensure consistent delivery.

The programme included  an interim spent fuel storage facility; equipment for treatment and conditioning of radioactive wastes; equipment for decontaminating pools and tanks; a facility for high volume reduction of waste and a facility for monitoring radiation contamination of free release materials. We produced the functional specification for a new near surface Low Level Waste repository.

Our initial contract involvement was extended by five years in recognition of the services provided.
