SPIE Nucléaire obtains a contract for the decommissioning of four zones of the Creys Malville reactor building
In early 2009, EDF's decommissioning and environmental engineering centre (CIDEN), based in Villeurbanne, launched at an invitation to tender for work to decommission zones 2, 3, 5 and 6 of the Creys Malville nuclear power plant's reactor building. This work entails the dismantling of electromechanical equipment with the particularity that the corresponding systems contain traces of sodium.
SPIE Nucléaire obtains a contract for the decommissioning of four zones of the Creys Malville reactor building.This order, of key importance regarding the performance of decommissioning projects for EDF, was awarded to a SPIE Nucléaire led consortium with SIGEDI, GADS and ORYS. Success in this operation will confirm our ability to carry out major decommissioning projects, in view of the next objective: the decommissioning of steam generators at the Creys Malville plant. This contract, worth more than 6 million including nearly 2 million for SPIE Nucléaire, entails:
- 10 months of engineering studies and nearly two years of works,
- 1,300 tonnes of waste to be decommissioned [very low level waste and conventional waste],
- more than 50 rooms to be decommissioned,
- about 90,000 hours' work
