Equipment dismantling under Project B-9/1(2)

Progress of equipment dismantling and decontamination works

In January 2014 performance of preparatory works has started:

  • Preparation of a site for the packaging and transportation of relatively non-radioactive waste that does not require shredding;
  • Preparation of a site for entry/exit of vehicles with HHISO containers in order to retain heat during the autumn and winter seasons;
  • Removal of equipment and piping insulation in closed compartments.

In July 2014 dismantling of uncontaminated equipment started (after receiving an amended license with a permit from VATESI to perform equipment dismantling works).

Works done:

  • Dismantling of electrical wires, alt. +9.6;
  • Dismantling of the third turbine backup exciter and exciters of turbines No 3 and 4;
  • Dismantling of water circulation system;
  • Dismantling of lubrication system of turbines No 3 and 4;
  • Dismantling of the generator stator cooling system;
  • Dismantling of the third and fourth turbine equipment;
  • Dismantling of drainage pumps of the third and fourth turbine equipment;
  • Dismantling of pipelines and condensate pumps;
  • Dismantling of heating networks and steam generator;
  • Packaging and transportation of heat insulation;
  • Retrieval of condensate tubes;
  • Dismantling of turbines No 3 and 4.

Works in progress:

  • Dismantling of pipelines of the third and fourth turbine;
  • Dismantling of electrical equipment.
    According to the data available by March 2019, 85% of equipment has been dismantled.

Pre-treated and transported - 66 per cent of the dismantled equipment.

 

The dismantling works are scheduled to be completed by in April 2021.
