Walless has advised the Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant on a project tender for reactor dismantling technology design services.
The Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant is a decommissioned two-unit RBMK-1500 nuclear power station in Visaginas, Lithuania.
According to Walless, “the Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant signed two contracts for design services of reactor dismantling technologies with prominent consortiums led by Westinghouse Electric Company, with Jacobs Slovakia and Lietuvos Energetikos Institutas, and Electricite de France, with Graphitech. Dismantling the cores from two RBMK-type nuclear reactors is the first-of-its-kind project worldwide. It is a part of the decommissioning of the Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant project, which itself is a first-ever project of such kind.”
The Walless team included Partner Laura Ziferman and Associate Partner Marius Dobilas.
Walless was unable to provide further information on the deal.
