Aging Nuclear Power Plants a market Driver
Nuclear plants were designed for 30-40 years’ operating life, and these power plants need to be decommissioned after completion of their operational life. However, through refurbishment and replacement, some have proved to be capable of continuing well beyond the above-mentioned operating life, up to maximum of 60 years. Once dismantling is complete, the site returns to its natural radioactivity level. With growth in the number of old nuclear plants that are nearing their operational life, the nuclear decommissioning market is poised to grow.
Growing Opportunity for the Nuclear Decommissioning Market in Canada
Canada has 19 nuclear reactors, which provide around 16% of the country’s electricity demand. In Dec 2017, four nuclear power plants were in the process of being decommissioned or were decommissioned. The extent of opportunities for decommissioning contracts is expected to depend on the plans for refurbishing Canada’s remaining three currently shut down reactors.
