Planning & Licensing

During preparation and before starting Decommissioning & Dismantling (D&D), a company must take into account the plant’s original design, modifications and specific conditions of operation and history.

It is also very important to have an early understanding of the specific regulatory requirements and to include those in a licensing plan that is sanctioned by the nuclear regulatory authorities.

Westinghouse’s extensive network in Canada, Europe and the United States of America provides a strong knowledge base of local D&D licensing requirements for nuclear power plants, nuclear research reactors and non-reactor nuclear facilities.

Westinghouse has been servicing the CANDU® market for more than 40 years and is uniquely positioned to plan and execute the successful D&D of CANDU® reactors in both Canada and internationally by leveraging detailed plant design and operation history.
