DISMANTLING AND DECOMMISSIONING OF NUCLEAR FACILITIES
The initial lifespan of a nuclear facility is usually 30 to 40 years. The life expectancy of a nuclear power plant is re-evaluated every ten years for an additional decade of operation. Some nuclear power plants have already been subject to a decommisionning and their dismantling has been completely achieved or is being performed. PROTEM took part in the dismantling of several reactors all around the world by developing suitable mechanized equipment.
