Services

Nagra offers its know-how to partners and customers worldwide.

Our experience in the area of waste management has proved to be valuable for other national waste management programmes and also in non-nuclear applications.

«Nagra has built up more than 30 years of experience through research in all aspects of waste management in Switzerland. Today we are in a position to pass on this know-how to our partners and customers worldwide.»

Fundamental and training courses

Nagra offers fundamental courses on all areas of radioactive waste management as well as bespoke training courses in our areas of expertise.

In June 2018, Nagra conducted a 1 week course on 'Bentonite’. The lectures and laboratory exercises were given by top experts from Nagra and other national and international organisations from our network. Participants joing the course came from China, the Czech Republic, Finland, Japan, Russia, South Korea and the United Kingdom.

The next general course planned is on hydraulic testing as part of the Grimsel Training Centre.

Decommissioning – NPP Activation Analysis and Packaging Concept Optimisation 

In 2017 Nagra completed a project for the Nuclear Power Plant Gundremmingen for the planning of the upcoming decommissioning of units 2 and 3.

Nagra applied its state-of-the-art advanced methodology for neutron activation analysis, which has been developed within the Swiss program and has been validated by full cycle irradiation sampling for nuclear power plants in Switzerland and abroad.

The high-resolution component-wise activation characterisation provides a realistic basis for substantial optimisation of dismantling and segmentation planning as well as for costs for waste management and packaging.

The results were presented at the Annual Nuclear Energy Meeting in Germany (2018).
