The purpose of this project was to provide an inventory database for the radioactive waste accumulated as a result of Chornobyl NPP Units 1, 2, 3 operation and for the radioactive waste in the Shelter, as well as for the RAW accumulated as a result of the ChNPP decommissioning.

The following are the major activities completed within the project framework:

  • development of the radioactive waste inventory database to manage the data at all stages of radioactive waste processing;
  • delivery of the necessary equipment (servers, workstations, peripherals) and licensed software;
  • installation of the equipment and database at the Chornobyl NPP ;
  • development of the database operating manuals;
  • training of the database users.

The database provides information to support the following activities:

  • accounting of all radioactive waste on the Chornobyl NPP industrial site;
  • initial packaging of the RAW;
  • RAW transportation for treatment;
  • RAW treatment and final packaging;
  • accounting of all packages of waste;
  • transportation of final packages to temporary storage or disposal facilities.

The database was handed over to the ChNPP for trial and industrial operation.
