The requirement

  • Decommissioning and disposal of the Niederaichbach nuclear power plant
  • Testing and assessment of the mechanical dismantling of metallic components

The results

  • Production monitoring of the cutting technology with partial tests/acceptances
  • Assembly support and test with acceptance at KKN
  • Testing & acceptance for quality assurance with supplementation of own controls
  • Deconstruction supervision until the buildings are measured free of obstructions

The solution

  • Concept & Planning Review
  • Partial expert opinion "Mechanical dismantling of the metallic components in accordance with the specifications from the safety report
  • Carrying out all preliminary tests with release for production
  • Technical inspections & acceptance tests at the manufacturer's plant (machine technology & control)
  • Assembly support in the KNK with tests and acceptances
  • Deconstruction monitoring and documentation

The added value

  • Independent expert opinions
  • Technical support for dismantling technology - from the concept phase to the end of use
