             The Unterweser nuclear power plant was shut down in 2011 after the reactor disaster in Fukushima. Now the permit for decommissioning and dismantling is available. It should start later this month.
            

        

        The 2011 shut down nuclear power plant Unterweser in the district of Wesermarsch may be shut down and dismantled. Lower Saxony's Minister of the Environment Olaf Lies handed over the approval decision in accordance with Article 7 (3) Atomic Energy Act (AtG) to the nuclear power plant operator PreussenElektra GmbH (formerly E.ON Kernkraft GmbH) on Tuesday. The application was submitted on 4 May 2012 and extended by letter of 20 December 2013. In February 2016, a multi-day discussion took place.
PreussenElektra wants to start according to own data still this month with the dismantling. The Unterweser nuclear power plant is thus the second plant of the company, which was shut down in 2011 and for which the approval for dismantling is present. In January 2017, the Isar 1 nuclear power plant received this approval as the first of the eight German nuclear power plants shut down that year. This means that three of the eight nuclear power plants of PreussenElektra are in the process of decommissioning: the nuclear decommissioning of the Stade nuclear power plant is scheduled to be completed in about four years. Already completed was nuclear decommissioning of the nuclear power plant Würgassen in 2014.

13 years of decommissioning "Following the legal reorganization of the disposal last year, the Unterweser nuclear power plant is to be dismantled directly, a safe enclosure and later dismantling of the plant is not permitted," explained Lies. On the spot, there has been a growing desire to avoid dismantling. "I can not share this assessment, and with our approach – not least in terms of sustainability – we are not shifting down to future generations."
The Unterweser nuclear power plant was in operation from 1978 to 2011. The dismantling is estimated to take about 13 years. A total of 675,000 tonnes of demolition material must be disposed of. The total mass of the nuclear control area with the reactor building and the auxiliary building is 193,000 tons. Around 90 percent of these are parts of buildings that, according to the operator, can be released without restriction and fed into the recycling cycle.

Block B, which went online in 1984, was shut down on December 31, 2017. Block C – also put into operation in 1984 – is due to follow in 2021. (Photo: kkw-gundremmingen.de)
