Dismantling of Greifswald Nuclear Power Plant

A proposal to shut down and dismantle the Greifswald Nuclear Power Plant (KGR) was made at the beginning of the 1990s and a cost and time estimation for the necessary works was compiled and agreed on with the proprietor. 

Mecklenburg-West Pomerania’s nuclear regulatory authority granted its approval on 30th June 1995.

This initial approval included the permission for the decommissioning of Units 1-6 and the dismantling of parts of the equipment in these units.

In addition, all major framework conditions were described on which the following proposals for the dismantling of further plants are based.


Current Works

Further equipment is being dismantled in the joint special building which could only be taken out of service after the new water treatment facility in the Central Decontamination and Water Treatment Plant (CDW) had been put into operation. These works will be completed after 2017.
