The Integrated Project known as ESDRED (Engineering Studies and Demonstrations of Repository Designs) is is focused on technology and has three main objectives. The first is to demonstrate, at an industrial scale, the technical feasibility of some very specific activities related to the construction, operation and closure of a deep geological repository for high level radioactive waste. The work is organised inside four (4) Technical Modules and essentially involves the conception, design, fabrication and demonstration of equipment or products for which relevant proven industrial counterparts (mainly in the nuclear and mining industry) do not exist today. At all times this work is to be carried out within the framework of compliance regarding the requirements for operational safety, long term safety, retrievability and monitoring.
