NUKEM Technologies, the specialist Nuclear Engineering Company, has won a three-year contract to work with the European Commission in providing support to Power Plant and Nuclear Facility operators in Ukraine to improve the overall Radioactive Waste situation in the country.

The project is one of a number to be launched by the EC with the aim of ensuring a robust and cohesive strategy for Ukraine, that will cover all aspects of radioactive waste generation, storage and remediation, as well as covering decommissioning activities, and the Chernobyl legacy waste.

NUKEM’s winning strategy centred on the companies in depth expertise of Radwaste issues, its long history in Ukraine, as well as ongoing projects at a number of Ukraine NPPs.
