Services During Decommissioning and Dismantling of Power Plants

Neutral and Reliable during Decommissioning

After 40 to 50 years, it is no longer feasible to modernize and operate many power plants, thus decommissioning and dismantling is part of these facilities’ lifecycles. Decommissioning of a power plant often presents operators with many challenges. Power plants cannot simply be leveled with a wrecking ball, as the rubble may be contaminated with toxic residues from decades of operation that must be disposed of carefully and properly. Therefore, the level of expertise and amount of experience of companies and providers involved in the dismantling process is extremely important.

Requirements for proper disposal of material used in power plants and mandated disposal timelines and safety standards vary according to operator and country.

Our experts assist in the professional dismantling of plants throughout the entire process. They survey safety areas, create dismantling manuals and oversee final shutdown. With our services, approval procedures, quality assurance and impartiality to citizens remain intact during the closure.
