ANNOTATION:

Effective decommissioning of nuclear legacy facilities depends directly on the applied engineering methods providing decontamination, dismantlement and RW management. The effectiveness of widely known and commonly applied methods cannot be seen as a constant value since it is governed by multiple factors, including the specific characteristics of the considered facilities. Pre-decommissioning stage should also consider some alternative techniques, methods, types of equipment and tooling, including those that are currently used outside the scope of nuclear industry.

The paper summarizes the assessment of nuclear decommissioning technologies and equipment applied in Russia and abroad showing certain potential for further industrial development. It also considers the scouting results focused on developments, prototypes, technologies and equipment associated with the areas of further industrial development providing opportunities for an increased performance during the implementation of key decommissioning operations.

Keywords: radioactive waste, digital information models, decommissioning, decontamination, dismantling, radioactive waste management, cleanup of contaminated areas, remotely operated devices, autonomous robotic means, software.
