Concept of nuclear installations, radiation sources and storage facilities decommissioning
The present Concept of nuclear installations, radiation sources and storage facilities decommissioning (hereinafter referred to as “the Concept”) has been prepared on the ground of statutory provisions of the Russian Federation and expresses the policy of Rosatom concerning nuclear and radiation hazardous objects decommissioning taking into account the function of nuclear energy use management body which was entrusted to it and covers the period till the year 2030. Rosatom considers as one of its priority goals the performance of the works concerning provision of safe decommissioning of nuclear and radiation- hazardous objects, including the ones which do not correspond to the contemporary requirements to population safety and environmental protection, including the reduction of quantity of nuclear and radiation hazardous objects which are in the mode of final shutdown.


Resolution of the International round table discussion:DECOMMISSIONING OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS Problems and Solutions for the Sustainable Development of Regions With NPPs, Spent Nuclear Fuel And Radioactive Wastes Management 4 - 5 June 2015, Halden, Norway
The final halt and decommissioning of the world's oldest RBMK-1000 at the Leningrad Nuclear Power Plant (LNPP) is planned for 2018. The oldest operating power units with VVER-440 nuclear power plants at the Kola NPP, the same age as LAES, will be decommissioned in the future in the Murmansk region. The Northwest Federal District of Russia will be the first to solve the complex problems associated with the decommissioning of energy units, final disposal of radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel (SNF). The experience in solving the complex problems of the decommissioning of these nuclear power plants can be replicated in other federal districts of Russia and in other countries.
