WILMINGTON, North Carolina — GEH (GEH) today has announced that its work in support of the Oskarshamn Nuclear Power Plant (OKG), which is being decommissioned in Sweden in the municipality of Oskarshamn has been completed.
The reactor internals at OKG Unit1 has been segmented by GEH recently. Research on the Oskarshamn site began in 2017 when the internal reactor unit 2 was dismantled and segmented.
Our experienced team has been able to complete its work on both OKG units on time and budget by concentrating on health, engineering rigor, and project execution, “said Jay Wileman, president, and CEO of GEH.
Billy Slättengren, OKG Project Manager, External Reactor Segmentation, said everyone involved did a great piece of work. Now we have to ensure that, first of all, safety, we continue our good work and finish solidly.
Units 1 and 2 were sub marinated using the GEH Primary Segmentation System to treat and segment the inner reactors.
GEH provides extensive project decommissioning experience, including reactor internal replacement in Japan, and segmentation for prolonged power uprisings in the United States. The contracts for the decommissioning of two reactors in the United States have been recently awarded to GEH.
