Decommissioning Excellence

Ensure safety and preserve the environment

available on premise

Nuclear plant decommissioning faces increased public and regulatory scrutiny as many reactors, built decades ago, reach their end of life. Owner/operators decommissioning their facilities are under pressure to anticipate personnel radiation exposure, even though design and operation data can be incomplete and inaccurate. At the same time, they must warrant first-time-right deconstruction plans and execution, while ensuring radioactive material inventory accuracy for disposal optimization.

Decommissioning Excellence provides owner/operators with a unified environment in which all assets and waste inventories can be recorded and managed. Visualizing and simulating decommissioning operations in a virtual environment promotes greater field worker safety, while reducing costs and environmental impact.

Benefits of Decommissioning Excellence

  • Ensure field worker safety

    Dassault Systèmes’ customers have saved up to 2,000 hours of training per month while improving health and safety by employing digital simulation that enables workers to train for and optimize the decommissioning process.

  • Minimize environmental impact

    Deliver a digital mockup of radioactive waste inventory that leads to more reliable disposal and storage and reduced risk of radiation exposure. By integrating the 3D model with engineering and radiation data and documents, knowledge is aggregated throughout the decommissioning process.

  • Acquire public acceptance

    Improve management of the waste production lifecycle from plan to disposal through better traceability, accountability and real-time control across the radioactive waste cycle. Keep schedules on track by leveraging hazardous material clearance planning that mitigates unscheduled or last-minute work at the site.

  • Maximize knowledge reuse

    Record past project experiences to reduce execution time on future decommissioning programs. Improve future efficiencies and ensure use of company-sponsored procedures by capitalizing best practices.
