Svensk Krnbrnslehantering AB (SKB) plans to build an integrated nuclear fuel encapsulation and interim storage facility at Oskarshamn, Sweden.
The project involves the construction of an integrated encapsulation plant and the expansion of Clab interim storage facility from the current 8,000 tonnes of fuel to 11,000 tonnes and also to store the capacity of approximately 200 canisters per year. The whole facility will then be called as Clink.
The project also includes the construction of mine shafts, hoists, underground tunnels, treatment infrastructure, and a waste disposal facility, and the installation of waste carrying equipment, shielding equipment, and metering units.
In November 2006, SKB submitted an application in accordance with the Nuclear Activities Act to build and own an encapsulation plant for spent nuclear fuel and to operate it integrated with the interim storage facility for spent nuclear fuel (Clab) in Oskarshamn.
On March 16, 2011, SKB submitted the license application to Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (SSM).
In June 2012, an OECD Nuclear Energy Agency review reported to the Sweden government that the projects whole repository concept met the long-term safety requirements.
In March 2016, SSM gave a positive assessment for its nuclear fuel encapsulation plant.
In June 2016, SSM assessed that licence application had the potential to comply with its requirements, and recommended to the Land and Environment Court in Stockholm that it should be allowed. SSM is expected to deliver its comprehensive final assessment of the application to the Swedish government in 2017 after further safety analysis by SKB.
Sweco has appointed as a Design Consultant and Vattenfall has been appointed as a study consultant and Babcock Noell GmbH has been appointed as a supply Contractor for the project.
On January 23, 2018, SSM and the Land and Environment Court submitted their respective opinions to the government on SKBs applications.
Construction is expected to commence in early 2020, after the government issues a permit, based on assessments of both the SSM and the Land and Environment Court. Commercial operation is scheduled in 2029.
The project involves the construction of an integrated nuclear fuel encapsulation plant and the expansion of Clab interim storage facility from 8,000 tonnes of fuel to 11,000 tonnes referred as Clink at Oskarshamn, Sweden.
