'It is an honour to chair the TotalDECOM SMART Decommissioning conference. It is vitally important to share the learning from past projects to help ensure that the mistakes of the past are not repeated. At this event there will be hundreds of years’ experience across speakers & delegates present in the audience. It is great to share these experiences for all of us to benefit from and allow us to design for safer demolition in the future.'
Steve Andrew, ABB
Head of Demolition Decommissioning & Remediation
Our October Decontamination mini conference is designed to showcase the latest cutting edge, efficient, and cost-effective innovations that aid in the decontamination of industrial sites, nuclear plants and oil & gas platforms, as well as remediation of contaminated land. The event will host key-decision makers from industry-leading organisations. To get involved get in touch with April Vincent on 01229 400212
Japan's Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco) announced its official decision to decommission the four reactors at the Fukushima Daini nuclear power plant, close to the damaged Fukushima Daiichi plant. The company said in June 2018 that it was considering decommissioning the plant in conjunction with Fukushima Daiichi in response to local demands for a decision on the fate of the site
In an outline plan, Tepco said that decommissioning of nuclear power plants usually takes about 30 years to complete. "However, as the decommissioning of Fukushima Daiichi will be implemented at the same time, the allocation of human resources must be thoroughly considered," it added. "It is estimated it will take more than 40 years to complete decommissioning of all four units at Fukushima Daini."
