COST EVALUATION OF ALTERNATIVE MANAGEMENT SCHEMES FOR ZIRCALOY HULLS.

Objective

A JOINT STRATEGY STUDY IS BEING PERFORMED TO ASSESS A NUMBER OF SCHEMES FOR THE TREATMENT, CONDITIONING, PACKAGING, INTERIM STORAGE, TRANSPORT AND DISPOSAL OF LWR HULLS AND CAPS ON THE BASIS OF ECONOMIC AND RADIOLOGICAL CRITERIA. IN THIS CONTEXT, TASK R&S AND KAH ARE CONTRIBUTING TOWARDS THE COSTING OF FIVE BASIC MANAGEMENT ROUTES.

THE SCOPE OF THE WORK IS TO ASSESS THE CAPITAL AND OPERATING COSTS OF THE VARIOUS UNIT OPERATIONS INCORPORATED INTO EACH BASIC MANAGEMENT SCHEME ON THE BASIS OF THE DETAILED PROCESS DESCRIPTIONS, PROVIDED BY THE OTHER PARTICIPATING ORGANISATIONS. MOREOVER, THE PLANT AND TRANSPORT COSTS WILL BE ACTUALISED TO THE OPERATIONAL START-UP DATE OF THE PLANT UTILISING THE "PRESENT WORTH" METHOD, FINALLY YIELDING A COST PER UNIT VOLUME OF PRIMARY WASTE TREATED. THE COSTING OF THE WASTE DISPOSAL ITSELF DOES NOT FORM PART OF THE STUDY.
DURING THE SECOND PHASE OF THE WORK, TASK R&S AND KAH WILL SCALE THE COSTS FOR PLANT CAPACITIES RANGING FROM 6 TO 60 GW(E).
