HDI to assay advances for decommissioning endeavors

28 November 2019

Members of Holtec International’s Decommissioning Advisory Board met on October 29, 2019, to assay advances made by the Company in its first year of decommissioning endeavors related to Oyster Creek (formerly Exelon’s) and Pilgrim (formerly Entergy’s) nuclear plants. This board is comprised of noted industry stalwarts representing many of North America’s leading nuclear operators.

Holtec Decommissioning International (HDI), a Holtec subsidiary, is the licensed operator for the plants that another Holtec subsidiary, Nuclear Asset Management Company (NAMCO), acquired as the licensed owner. NAMCO acquired both Oyster Creek and Pilgrim in the past year. HDI’s majority-owned subsidiary, Comprehensive Decommissioning International (CDI), is the general decommissioning contractor for the sites. The centerpiece of the Board’s deliberations was the array of innovative approaches developed by HDI and CDI to maximize efficiency, which will benefit personnel safety and minimize the quantity of radioactive waste as well as the Decommissioning Program’s environmental footprint.
