Supervision and compilation of the detailed preliminary studies and the safety files related to the Trident project

Trident: Integrated treatment of nuclear wastes from Tricastin on the Socatri site

Background

Activity at Tricastin has intensified as new additional nuclear plants have been put into service. A new solid waste treatment facility has now become necessary to cope with this increase in activity.

The facility will be located in the western area of Socatri’s URS building and will handle:

  • The reception of primary packages of solid nuclear waste
  • The characterisation and verification of incoming and outgoing wastes
  • The dismounting, cutting, compacting and reconditioning of the incoming wastes,
  • The conditioning of the waste in compliance with acceptance file and ANDRA licensing criteria
  • The intermediate storage of waste packages prior to and after treatment,
  • The expedition of waste packages to their final repositories at ANDRA.
