£3 billion nuclear decommissioning opportunities in Emerging Europe

UK Trade and Investment web conference:

30 September 2014, 2pm UK time

The UK government has arranged a web-conference for UK companies that specialise in the nuclear sector. It will provide an overview of the commercial opportunities in waste management and decommissioning in Emerging Europe.

UK Trade and InvestmentThe Emerging Europe region comprises nine markets and 110 million consumers (Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia), offering a range of business opportunities across a wide number of sectors.

The region offers a number of decommissioning and waste management opportunities worth an estimated £3.4 billion. The markets are low-risk, close to home and all offer considerable long-term growth potential for UK businesses.  

The conference will explore the potential from decommissioning of four VVER reactors at Bulgaria’s Kozloduy site (funded from EU via EBRD), together with construction and management of a low-to-intermediate waste disposal facility.

It also covers the new repository to be built for the radwaste from Plant Life Extension of Cernavoda Unit 1 in Romania, and gives best insights into the High Level Waste Repository project in the Czech Republic. Slovenia has just issued a tender for the initial design stages for a new waste repository.

And in Slovakia, the decommissioning programme of  Bohunice plant is being undertaken. Key highlights of the current stage of the Slovakian decommissioning project encapsulate dismantling of the Technical Equipment in the V1 NPP Turbine Hall, dismantling of Outdoor Not Contaminated Facilities and Objects and Dismantling of Electric Power Supply Systems
