Thanks for printing! Don't forget to come back to ENERCON for new articles and information.
The transition from facility operations to decommissioning requires a detailed, integrated transition plan for the entire facility incorporating changes proposed to systems important to safety that could be affected during the shutdown process. ENERCON is familiar with international decommissioning requirements for all types of nuclear facilities, including IAEA Safety Report 26 (Safety Considerations in the Transition from Operations to Decommissioning of Nuclear Facilities) and Technical Report 420 (Transition from Operation to Decommissioning of Nuclear Installations). ENERCON can help develop the strategy and support the owner through this transition process, providing engineering support, regulatory support, environmental consulting, and surveillance and maintenance program development and implementation. ENERCON can prepare the transition plans, perform engineering for the change of status, revise decommissioning cost estimates, develop the strategy to initiate decommissioning activities, develop waste and used fuel management programs, and perform readiness reviews for the processes or programs affected. Significant cost savings for the overall decommissioning effort can be realized through effective planning and management of the transition process.
