Innovation

We're embracing new technologies and tackling technical challenges that will innovate the end of the nuclear lifecycle.

We’re bringing the same excellence and spirit of innovation to decommissioning nuclear stations that we brought to building and operating them.

Our annual innovation fund for new research and development projects will help prepare for decommissioning and advance solutions for minimizing nuclear materials and recycling clean materials. 

The ideas, techniques and solutions that come from these projects will help reduce timelines and costs for the decommissioning project, enhance employee safety, reduce radiation exposure and waste, and ensure the safety of the community and environment.
