A number of European experts discussed techniques and procedures presently applied in the dismantling of large-scale nuclear installations in the European Community. Besides the four pilot dismantling projects of the current third R&D programme (1989-93) of the European Community on decommissioning of nuclear installations (WAGR, BR-3 PWR, KRB-A BWR and AT-1 FBR fuel reprocessing), other facilities were considered which have a significant scale and/or representative features and are presently being dismantled. These include the Magnox reprocessing pilot plant at Sellafield, the HWGCR EL4 at Monts d'Arrée, the operation of an on-site melting furnace for G2/G3 GCR dismantling waste at Marcoule, an EdF confinement conception of shut-down LWRs for deferred dismantling, and the technical aspects of the decommissioning of the Greifswald WWER type NPPs. The meeting was completed by a presentation on the decommissioning of material testing reactors in the United Kingdom and by an overview of the conception and implementation of two EC databases on tools, costs and job doses.
