The temporary low and intermediate level radioactive waste storage to be built in the Jaslovské Bohunice nuclear power plant (Slovakia)

Mecsekérc Ltd. grouped together with Slovakian Strabag (ZIPP Bratislava spol. s r.o.) in the September of 2013 to create a consortium in order to join the tender of the temporary low and intermediate radioactive waste storage to be built in Jaslovské Bohunice. 

3.500 m2

construction of storage chamber during 16 months

43 months

the whole duration of the project 

The details of the project


Following the successful tender the planning started subsequently in the January of 2014 and construction started in the August of 2014 after the authority had been obtained. The main stages of the project were

  • Preparation

  • Planning, creating the technical documentation

  • Demolition works and cleaning of the area

  • Obtaining the necessary licenses for constructing of the temporary storage

  • Construction, installation – Stage I

  • Installing technology support systems – Stage II

  • Test run and commissioning

  • Preparation of the implementation documents 


The existing building containing dangerous materials had to be dismantled first, and then the utilities had to be moved and a new system had to be built. The construction of the storage chamber and the administrative building could be started subsequently. A 3500 m2 storage space and 900m2 of technological control area had to be built over 16 months. The radioactive waste is transferred by rail and is housed in special containers which are then put to their designated place with an automated crane system. Complying with the specifications, the storage space has closed ventilation and water treatment systems in addition to the radiation protection system which is an integral part of the existing control system of the power plant. ​
