 CHALLENGE

 Creation of safe, practical and cost-effective design for Finnish spent nuclear fuel repository.

 SOLUTION

VTT is an essential contributor to the technical bases of the ONKALO repository safety case, including waste characterization methods, justification for long-term safety and development and performance verification of engineering barrier systems for confinement of radioactive materials.

 BENEFIT

As the first country in the world, Finland has a safe final disposal solution for high-level radioactive waste from nuclear power plants. The construction license of a deep, geological repository in Olkiluoto was granted to Posiva Oy by the Finnish Government’s Council of State on 9 November 2015. Waste deposition is expected to start in 2022.
