AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, has signed a five year contract with Czech utility CEZ for the management of radioactive waste at their nuclear power plant in Dukovany.
The contract, the value of which has not been disclosed, will be run by AMEC's Slovakian business. AMEC provides reactor support and waste management and decommissioning services to all Slovak and Czech nuclear power plants, (Bohunice, Mochovce, Temelin and Dukovany) through its Slovakian business.
“This important contract confirms AMEC's position as an important partner to both CEZ and ENEL in the area of radioactive waste management in the Central and Eastern European region, and is also further recognition of our specific skills in this field,” said Pavol Stuller, managing director of AMEC Nuclear Slovakia.
“The waste, spent ion-exchange resin, will be transferred into an aluminium silicate matrix specially developed by AMEC's Slovakian team. The versatile process significantly reduces liquid waste volume and therefore offers a significant reduction in cost which maintains long-term stability of the final product.”
