Vattenfall, E.On cooperate on nuclear power plant decommissioning

To make the decommissioning and dismantling process of their joint venture nuclear power plants as economically as possible, E.On Technologies (ETG) and Vattenfall Europe Nuclear Energy (VENE) have closed a cooperation agreement in May 2015.

In 2011, the operating licenses in Germany of in total four nuclear power plants of operator companies E.On and Vattenfall were withdrawn. The main objective of the cooperation agreement is to incorporate experience especially from the largely completed dismantling of E.On nuclear power plant in Stade in the planning and implementation of the decommissioning of the VENE power plants.

In a first step, the transfer of experts has already begun. Subject of the cooperation agreement is the joint development and use of concepts such as deconstruction for the dismantling of large components and logistics, waste treatment or disposal. The expertise acquired by the post-operational phase and dismantling should not only be continuously exchanged between the partners, but also updated.
