February 15, 2018 - THTR dismantling: Costs and dangers as an "established process"

The maintenance operation of the enclosed thorium high-temperature reactor (THTR) will last from 1997 to 2027.

Ten years ago, on October 17, 2008, the Committee for Economics, Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises and Energy of North Rhine-Westphalia confirmed the information given in the approval notice 7/12c, after the operators of the THTR had to inform the nuclear regulatory authority by the end of 2017 how long the maintain safe enclosure and when to start dismantling the reactor.

What's new?

Since nothing has been known to the public so far, we as a citizens' initiative environmental protection Hamm asked the Ministry for Economy, Innovation, Digitization and Energy NRW in detail (1) and received an answer after almost four months on February 7, 2018:

"According to the current state of planning, Hoch Temperatur-Kernkraftwerk GmbH (HKG), as the operator of the plant, intends to maintain the safe enclosure until 2027 and to begin preparing the plant for complete dismantling from 2028 onwards. (...) MWIDE has not yet received any applications for changes to existing nuclear licenses or for the dismantling of the THTR 300 ...
