Jacobs Chosen for Radioactive Waste Project in Belgium

Selected as part of consortium to design new storage buildings and water treatment plant

A consortium including Jacobs was selected by NIRAS/ONDRAF, the Belgian agency for radioactive waste management, for a new framework contract covering new treatment and storage facilities.

The consortium, led by Sweco Belgium and including Orano Projets and Arteum Architects, will be responsible for feasibility studies, all design phases, project and construction supervision and support on several major projects for new waste storage buildings and a water treatment plant at NIRAS/ONDRAF sites in Dessel and Mol, Belgium. The framework is estimated by NIRAS/ONDRAF to be worth $38 million (€31.7 million) to the consortium.

Surface storage of radioactive waste

Sweco and Arteum Architects are already carrying out multidisciplinary design, site monitoring and site supervision for NIRAS/ONDRAF relating to surface storage of category A radioactive waste in Dessel.
