NUVIA’s projects in Ukrainian nuclear energy are taking on a new dimension18.03.2021
Tripartite memorandum of cooperation was signed
The negotiations between NUVIA a.s., the South Korean power company Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power (KHNP) and the State Agency of Ukraine on Exclusion Zone Management resulted in the signing of a Memorandum of Cooperation on radioactive waste (RAW) treatment.
KHNP used the long-term partnership and experience of NUVIA with the supply of several projects in the field of waste management, including special procedures of RAW management for all Ukrainian nuclear power plants, including Chernobyl. It is the site of the Chernobyl NPP, which bears the official name "exclusion zone", that deals with the State Exclusion Zone Agency.
At the presentation in Kiev prior to the signing of the Memorandum, the Korean side introduced advanced RAW processing technologies, which aim to significantly reduce the radwaste amount intended for controlled storage. If the agreed steps are implemented, Korean technologies may bring new actions to the Chernobyl zone.
