The European Nuclear Decommissioning Training Facility

The first session has been held in Mol, Belgium - November, 18 – 29, 2002
 

Background

In the Fifth Framework Programme on Community activities in the field of research, technological development and demonstration for the period 1998 to 2002, SCK·CEN co-ordinates a project called European Nuclear Decommissioning Training Facility (EUNDETRAF).
EUNDETRAF is a consortium of main European decommissioners, such as SCK·CEN (Belgium), EWN (Germany), KGB (Germany), Belgatom (Belgium), SOGIN (Italy), Universität Hannover (Germany), IRSN (France) and JCAT (Russia).

Objective

EUNDETRAF's goal is to disseminate the European decommissioning knowledge by holding two times a yearly training course to those who are confronted with one or more decommissioning projects of a nuclear facility. Each training course exists of a one-week theoretical and a one-week practical part. The theoretical part (oral presentations) is aimed for a broad audience while the practical part (visits and case-studies) is for a limited audience.

Principal results

From November 18 till November 29, SCK·CEN organised the first training course in the framework of EUNDETRAF, involving a lot of different SCK·CEN services. Thirty participants (see picture below) of 14 different European countries and even one from Taiwan participated in the theoretical part while nine participants had a practical training.
This included the demonstration of two codes (DEMATO and VISIPLAN), four detailed visits ( BR3, CBZ, Q2 and lab LNK ) and a case study of the dismantling of a tank.
There was a very good feedback of the participants on both parts of the course.

Future developments

The second course will be held in Hannover and Greifswald (Germany) in the autumn of next year.
While the preparations are already started, preliminary contacts are made with JCAT to hold a similar training course in Russia.
