Case Study

Bohunice V1 Project

The Bohunice V1 Project, located in the Republic of Slovakia, Europe, involves the dismantling of two water-water energetic reactors (WWER), or Russian vodo-vodyanoi energetichesky reactor (VVER), Russian VVER-440-unit nuclear power plant that ceased operation in 2006 and 2008. The state-owned Slovak Nuclear and Decommissioning Company sought a proven partner in decontamination, dismantling and waste packaging. They chose Westinghouse for our innovation and expertise.
