Connecting Digital tools
for smarter nuclear decommissioning and dismantling
When a nuclear facility has reached the end of its lifetime, or policy no longer supports nuclear power, the facility must be shut down as safely as possible. This is a challenge due to the radioactive waste and many moving parts of the facility.
What will PLEIADES Do?
To help tackle this, PLEIADES will connect the latest online tools on one platform to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the people involved and the environment around an old facility. The PLEIADES platform will be the first, unique platform to gather a set of mature, digital technologies to be implemented on dismantling sites.
The key aspect of the platform will be to use a Building Information Modelling (BIM) based approach for logistic planning, safety measures and pilot decommissioning applications which will simplify overall decommissioning and dismantling (D&D) planning.
