TECHNICAL DOCUMENT Document No.: 9569 / CA / F 009970 3 / 00 NIS, Siempelkamp Ingenieurgeselischaft mbH 13.10.2016 Site Specific Decommissioning Cost Calculation for the Borssele NPP, October 2016 Executive Summary The present report describes the preliminary decommissioning plan (PDP) and the corresponding cost estimates for the Borssele NPP (Kerncentrale Borssele, KCB). It follows the decommissioning strategy “Immediate Dismantling” after final shutdown on 31th December 2033. The Plant KCB is operated by NV Elektriciteits-Produktiemaatschappij Zuid-Nederland (EPZ) in Vlissingen, the Netherlands. It is a pressurised water reactor (PWR) with a net electric capacity of 480 MWe. The plant was put into operation in 1973 (first criticality in June 1973, commercial start in October 1973). History of PDP and Cost Estimates Starting in 1994, EPZ has charged Siempelkamp NIS Ingenieurgesellschaft mbH (NIS) several times to elaborate a preliminary dismantling plan including the calculation of the related costs, see /1/ (1994), /2/ (2003), /3/ (2006) and /4/ (2010). The 1994 and 2003 studies were made under the following main boundary conditions: final shutdown of the reactor on 31th December 2013 deferred dismantling after 40 years of safe enclosure In 2006 the boundary conditions were changed to: final shutdown of the reactor on 31th December 2033 immediate dismantling after final shutdown In 2010 the day of final shut down and the immediate dismantling remained. Additionally a so called COVRA variant considering only COVRA and not KONRAD containers was performed.
