Call for tender: Decontaminating and decommissioning of nuclear installations

The Commission has published a call for tenders for decontamination work for making safe and decommissioning installations which have been shut down. The installations are located on the JRC site at Ispra. The work concerns the following installations:
- Ispra 1 research reactors (type CP5, 5MW);
- Essor research reactor (heavy water, 25 MW);
- Laboratory comprising several hot-cells (stainless steel);
- Radiochemistry laboratory (glove boxes);
- Cyclotron.

The work of making safe and decommissioning the above installations mainly includes:
- Sorting out various pieces and materials (cells and glove boxes) at their source;
- The maintenance and/or handling of contaminated and active pieces and components;
- The radioactive cleaning of structures, circuits, pieces, cells, glove boxes, etc.: complete decontamination will be performed to free the structures (etc.) involved without restriction;
- The disassembly of installations and dismantling of large and active pieces, some cuts possibly being made underwater (pool);
- The management of the resulting radioactive waste.
