Support in the Radioactive Waste characterization and release from regulatory control in Ukraine

 

Project was funded by the European Union in the framework of the Annual Action Program for Nuclear Safety 2010 - Part II.

Overall Project objective:

Safety and cost-effectiveness improvement in all types of Radioactive Materials Management in Ukraine and, in particular, ensure the Radioactive Waste minimization during all types of activities by exempting from regulatory control.

SSE ChNPP is the Project Recipient in part of: U4.01/10E:

Procedure and methodology for the materials release from regulatory control.

Project Objective:

Support for the safe and cost-effective radioactive materials management by minimizing generated RAW, requiring disposal in high-tech engineered facilities by releasing materials from regulatory control.

The main project tasks, for which SSE ChNPP is a Recipient:

Development of release procedure (procedures). Technical Specification for the pilot facility for the materials release from regulatory control at Chernobyl NPP.

Development of the tender documentation package for the facility creation at Chernobyl to release materials from regulatory control.

Development of release procedures for use at Chernobyl NPP.

Personnel training and technology transfer.

Dissemination of the project results and final report.

It was performed within the Project:

A building was identified to locate a pilot facility for materials release from regulatory control.
The list of procedures for release has been identified and agreed with SNRIU.
The SNRIU "non-objection" in principal was submitted to JSO for use at Chernobyl NPP a stationary facility and measuring equipment for the materials release from regulatory control.
The Contractor has prepared and sent to EC a package of Tender documents for Tendering and Contract awarding to supply a pilot facility for the materials release from regulatory control at Chernobyl NPP.
The Tender was held and Contract No. NSI/2015/365 776 "Creation of a facility for the materials release from regulatory control at Chernobyl NPP" was awarded.
State Nuclear Regulatory Inspectorate of Ukraine (SNRIU) issued a positive conclusion for the document "Methodology of Radioactive Materials Release from Regulatory Control" based on the results of the State expertise. The methodology establishes general methodological provisions, based on which Chernobyl NPP and other enterprises performing practical activities in the field of Nuclear Energy use will be able to develop their own specific standards to release materials from regulatory control.
Draft procedures for the materials release from regulatory control to use at Chernobyl NPP have been developed and submitted to SNRIU for review.
