The EU launched the project, aimed at increasing the safety level of nuclear waste repositories in Ukraine. The budget of this particular project made 1.4 million Euros, reads the report by Ukraine's State Agency for Management of Chornobyl Exclusion Zone.
The report mentions that the initiative was brought to life in November 2018. In particular, it includes the complex evaluation of the safety level on the repository sites used by Ukrainian state-run company Radon and other measures to rehabilitate the troubled repositories.
The EU-Ukraine program of cooperation in the nuclear safety area foresees that this project will contribute to the security situation at the repositories built near Kyiv, Kharkiv, Dnipro, Lviv and Odesa.
The project aims to re-evaluate the safety levels at the obsolete repositories of nuclear waste; experts will develop the technical solutions to rehabilitate the most troubled ones.
The initiative is implemented through the efforts of Ukraine-German consortium, led by Brenk Systemplanung GmbH company.
