Activities under the Contract with NOVARKA Consortium

Client: NOVARKA Consortium, international

Objective: performance of ordered works

During the year, within the framework of contract NKA 400 0009/08/2008 (dated 19.12.2008), the Chornobyl Center experts performed works under specific tasks, namely:

  • estimating total activity of radioactive alpha- and beta- airborns in air samples (n=1463);
  • measurements of 137Cs content in organisms of the Consortium staff (n=63);
  • analysis of 239Pu content in biosamles (n=63).

During 2014 and within the framework of contract NKA 400 0009/08/2008 (dated December 19, 2008), experts of the Chornobyl Center performed the following works per specific tasks:

  • estimation of the total activity of radioactive alpha and beta airborne in air samples (n=1711);
  • measurement of 137Cs concentrations in human body of NOVARKA staff (n=69);
  • analysis of 239Pu concentrations in biosamples (n=68).

The research results were handed to the Customer.

In 2015, within the framework of Contract NKA 400 0009/08/2008 (dated December 19, 2008) with Novarka Consortium, experts of the Chornobyl Centre conducted works within the following tasks:

  • estimation of total activity of radioactive alpha and beta airborne in air samples (n = 1282);
  • measurements of 137Cs content in the organisms of JV Novarka personnel (n = 47);
  • analysis of 239Pu content in biosamples (n = 47).

Deliverables were submitted to the Customer.

In 2016 the Chornobyl Center experts were performing works under specific tasks within the framework of Contract NKA 400 0009/08/2008 (dated 19 December, 2008) with the Novarka consortium, namely:

  • Estimation of total activity of radioactive alpha and beta airborne in air samples (n = 1716);
  • Measurement of 137Cs concentration  in the body of Novarka JV personnel (n = 48);
  • Analysis of 239Pu concentration in biosamples (n = 47).

The research results were handled to the Customer.

In 2017 the following activities were performed:
