The French Ecology Minister came to the Gard region to sign officially an Ecologic Transition Contract dedicated to boost the economic recovery of the territory after the shut down of EDF fuel electric plant at Aramon.
This contract holds 30 projects in various areas of the economy among which one from SOCODEI, called So’Gard.
We already spoke about these topics in our So Connect newsletters n°6 and n°7. => online on our website here and here
 To put it in a nutshell, So’Gard is aimed at treating new metallic waste from NPP’s at CENTRACO’s melting unit, with a clear recycling ambition.
 The first type of waste to be treated will be control rods guides.
 A new cutting unit will be built on site to prepare the metal for melting (first operations target date : 2023).
 After signing the contract, the Minister came to visit CENTRACO and discovered SOCODEI’s expertise.

Signature of the cooperation between NDA and EDF. Meeting between Sylvain Granger (Head of Decommissioning and Waste management Projects Division at EDF) et David Peattie (NDA CEO)

In the framework of the 2018 World Nuclear Exhibition, EDF signed a set of agreements to formalize cooperation with European industrial partners.
The purpose of these agreements is to strengthen the industrial sector of nuclear decommissioning in France and to promote its international development, in particular through Cyclife.

Agreements signed, in the framework of the World Nuclear Exhibition:

- Partnership agreement with VEOLIA to develop the treatment of radioactive waste by vitrification and think about the design of the industrial demonstrator to secure the dismantling of graphite reactors
- Agreement with ORANO to propose a common offer of services for the decommissioning of the fast neutron reactor at Monju, Japan
- Agreement with FORTUM, a Finnish company and major player in energy in Northern Europe, to develop common offers on decommissioning and radioactive waste management in the Nordic market
- Agreement establishing the basis for cooperation on the dismantling of graphite reactors with the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, the UK public authority in charge of the decommissioning of 27 Magnox reactors (graphite) in the United Kingdom
- Partnership agreement with SOGIN (Società Gestione Impianti Nucleari), a public company in charge of the decommissioning and waste management in Italy
- Agreement with the CEA on the development of common standards and digital tools, which enable EDF to stay one step ahead in its decommissioning projects and accelerate the digital transition of the industrial sector of decommissioning and waste management radioactive;
-  Acquisition of OREKA SOLUTIONS, start-up specializing in digital at the service of dismantling of nuclear power plants

The new UMIS mobile machine conceived by SOCODEI, for EDF UTO entity, has been awarded the engineering trophee by the Nuclear Direction of EDF during the ChallengeNuc at Aubervilliers on march 28th.

This mobile nuclear zone is operating on the NPPs to realize the inventories of the containers located on the LLA storage areas. It has arisen the interest the Navy and our foreign colleagues from the nuclear industry.

Edf’s President, Jean Bernard Levy, came to visit the booth where the machine was presented, and congratulated the team.

The UMIS machine did a first campaign at Blayais NPP and is now at Tricastin NPP before a first maintenance period during the summer.
