Development of a Preliminary Decommissioning Plan (PDP) following IAEA guidelines

Work on this projection included the following steps:

  • Collect the data, and develop the PDP following country regulations, European Commission (EC) and International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) guidelines.
  • Develop comprehensive cost estimates using the OMEGA code and incorporate the results into the PDP.
  • Develop waste management schedules and methodologies.
  • Prepare the PDP for submission to the local nuclear regulator.
  • Aligning the PDP with leading international and CANDU specific decommissioning plans and practices.
  • Trending international regulatory practices and decommissioing strategies that could impact the approach to decommissioning.
