Westinghouse Electric Company today announced that it has been awarded a contract to dismantle the reactor pressure vessel and its internals at the Philippsburg Nuclear Power Plant Unit 1. Philippsburg Unit 1 is operated by EnBW Kernkraft GmbH (EnKK) and was commercially shut down in 2011.

The contract’s scope includes the planning, equipment manufacture and on-site segmentation of the reactor vessel internals and the reactor vessel, including peripheral structures. Westinghouse has already applied its advanced and innovative segmentation processes in other projects to cut more than 1,000 linear feet (300 linear meters) of highly activated components totaling more than 60 tons of processed material. The scope for this contract will be executed by a consortium comprising NUKEM Technologies Engineering Services GmbH (NTES) and GNS Gesellschaft für Nuklear-Service mbH under the lead of Westinghouse Electric Germany GmbH. The work will be carried out under the direction of EnKK when the decommissioning license is granted by the Ministry of the Environment, Climate and Energy of Baden-Württemberg.

“We are very pleased to be awarded this contract,” said Dr. Norbert Haspel, Westinghouse vice president and managing director, Central Europe. “Because of our strong teamwork, we have developed a customer-oriented and optimized solution leveraging the strength of each of the partners. With this project we are able to sustain our fruitful cooperation with EnBW through the deployment of safe, proven Westinghouse technology to their decommissioning activities.”

“We are proud to add our expertise to the team,” Thomas Seipolt, managing director of NUKEM Technologies Engineering Services GmbH stated. “We value the confidence EnBW’s award demonstrates in the consortium members’ ability to deliver a demanding project of high quality, on time and at the right cost.”

“GNS contributes its extensive experience from more than 100 projects concerning the processing and packaging of activated reactor components,” explained Dr. Hannes Wimmer, chairman of the GNS Board of Managing Directors. “Our well-established conditioning and packaging equipment ensures process reliability and compliance with the specifications for transport, interim storage and final disposal.”

Westinghouse provides comprehensive, integrated services to the global decommissioning and decontamination and waste management nuclear plant market including state-of-the-art solutions for the handling of spent fuel and the treatment, handling and storage of low-, intermediate- and high-level radioactive waste.

Westinghouse Electric Company, a group company of Toshiba Corporation (TKY: 6502), is the world’s pioneering nuclear energy company and a leading supplier of nuclear plant products and technologies to utilities throughout the world. Westinghouse supplied the world’s first pressurized water reactor in 1957 in Shippingport, Pennsylvania, U.S. Today, Westinghouse technology is the basis for approximately one-half of the world’s operating nuclear plants, including more than 50 percent of those in Europe.

NUKEM Technologies in Alzenau, Germany, is world-wide active in the areas of management of radioactive waste and spent fuel, decommissioning of nuclear facilities, engineering and consulting. Its wholly owned subsidiary NUKEM Technologies Engineering Services holds responsibility for all projects related to design and delivery of technological solutions, as well as being a sales partner in German-speaking countries. Since 2009, NUKEM Technologies belongs to ROSATOM.

With its 40 years of nuclear experience GNS Gesellschaft für Nuklear-Service mbH is in charge of the management of the wastes and residual materials from all German commercial nuclear power plants. In Germany and abroad GNS offers casks, containers, facilities, engineering and services for management and disposal of spent fuel and all types of radioactive waste.
