In 1977, a study was carried out on the decommissioning costs of NPPs in Germany by NIS Ingenieurgesellschaft for the Commission of the European Communities. The experience gained during the last 15 years from the decommissioning of nuclear installations, as well as the developments made in calculating costs, gave reasons to update the 1977 study. The cost estimates were carried out for the German LWRs, Biblis A (PWR) and Brunsbüttel (BWR). For the calculations, the software program STILLKO 2 (owned by the German VDEW) was used. Besides cost calculations, data relating to manpower, occupational radiation exposure, masses of material to be dismantled and radioactive waste generated have been obtained. The results enable a direct comparison with those of the 1977 study and highlight the most important differences.
