Construction of nuclear waste repository to start in 2022

By: J.S.,STA

The construction of a special storage facility for low- and intermediate-level waste in the vicinity of the Krško Nuclear Power Plant (NEK) is expected to start at the beginning of 2022, as the project is in the final stages of obtaining necessary documentation and selecting contractors.

A trial launch is expected to take place in late 2023 or early 2024, Sandi Viršek, the head of the national Radioactive Waste Agency (ARAO), recently said. The project, which is behind schedule, is expected to cost EUR 194 million.
