On March 1-2, the Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant (INPP) Director General, Darius Januliavičius, took part in an international conference in London devoted to the decommissioning of nuclear power plants and the regulation of radioactive waste.
The conference participants discussed the most important challenges facing by enterprises in decommissioning projects for nuclear power plants. The conference talked about current and future projects in Europe with the aim of developing business opportunities and innovations in the field of radioactive waste management.
INPP Director General Darius Janulevičius in his report presented the challenges that arise from decommissioning, the main INPP decommissioning projects, the experience gained and the lessons learned.
"The interest of foreign colleagues in the acquired experience of INPP in the field of decommissioning and construction of new facilities is quite large. Attention was paid to both the discussion of measures to improve the efficiency of activities, and successful solutions to problems in the main INPP decommissioning projects. We, for our part, were interested in the experience of foreign colleagues, which can be useful in the implementation of work on the decommissioning of INPP. For example, the pragmatic view of the UK regulatory body was widely discussed when agreeing on documents for decommissioning projects, which has a positive impact on both the cost of projects and the implementation time" -said D.Janulevičius
At the international conference participated and presentations made the International Atomic Energy Agency Decommissioning Specialist Patrick O’Sulivanas (Patrick O’Sullivan), the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development Nuclear Safety Director Vincas Novak (Vince Novak), foreign energy experts and company’s representatives.
