Orano wins two new dismantling contracts from RWE

06 November 2019

Orano, together with partner EWN (Entsorgungswerk für Nuklearanlagen GmbH), has been awarded two contracts by German utility RWE to carry out strategic dismantling operations for the Mülheim-Kärlich and Biblis nuclear power plants, located in the West of Germany. 

The maturity of the proposals in terms of safety, economic efficiency and project management model presented by Orano and EWN, convinced RWE to award the two partners an overall site contract for Mülheim-Kärlich and in addition a contract for two lots for the twin units at the Biblis NPP.

The agreements cover segmentation and packaging of the heart of the Mülheim-Kärlich nuclear plant, the RPV - reactor pressure vessel, as well as critical equipment such as the RPV-head and the RPV-internals. The scope at the Biblis site covers the RPV-internals of unit A and B.

The operations will be conducted from 2020 to 2022 at the Mülheim-Kärlich site and from 2021 to 2023 on the Biblis twin units. The work will be performed mainly underwater, using proven remote-operated technology.
