The maximum safety for human beings and the environment are the top priority when it comes to decommissioning and dismantling a nuclear power plant. Achieving the objective requires that the responsible personnel working on it invent new plans on a daily basis that adapt to the constantly changing state of the plant, a task that assumes extensive, expert understanding of the system on the part of all participants, and a sound knowledge of the complex interplay of technology and radiology.
This is especially true for the dismantling of the AVR's prototype reactor with its special, radiological conditions which are not routine, even in the field of nuclear technology.
Compliance with these requirements is ensured through education and training which clearly go beyond the controlled minimum requirements envisaged and enforced by legislation.
The acquisition of additional, specialised knowledge about innovative disassembly and disposal techniques guarantees dismantling which is efficient and above all safe at all times and which has always taken its lead from the latest developments in science and technology.
