SNC-Lavalin’s wholly owned subsidiary Atkins Energy Germany GmbH has won a contract from RWE Nuclear GmbH to progress the decommissioning of its Lingen boiling water reactor through segmenting and packaging the reactor and internals. The four-year contract includes segmentation and packaging of the reactor vessel and its internals to enable disposal and subsequent site clearance. The 268MW Lingen nuclear power plant, located in Lower Saxony, has been shut down since the late 1970s and was partially decommissioned. Completing the decommissioning is part of Germany’s decision to phase out nuclear power.

In addition to the Lingen decommissioning work, SNC-Lavalin is executing multiple decontamination and decommissioning projects in the United States as part of Comprehensive Decommissioning International, LLC, its joint venture company with Holtec.
