Feasibility study on nuclear sunken objects in the Arctic Sea
Year:2017 - in progress
On behalf of the European Commission's General Directorate for Development and Cooperation Stability, Security, Development and Nuclear Safety, Sogin led a consortium of companies (German, English, Norwegian) to carry out a study which, based on the data provided from Rosatom, identifies the most dangerous nuclear objects of Russian origin sunk in the Arctic (nuclear submarines, nuclear reactors, etc.) and, based on a feasibility study, elaborate and propose a plan for their recovery. The plan examines the technical, safety and regulatory aspects, finally providing a time schedule and a budgetary estimate of the costs. The main activities of the project concerned the composition of the inventory of all types of objects sunk in the Barents and Kara seas, the classification of sunk objects and the feasibility study on the recovery, the management and the securing of objects.
