IFE and partners establish a new cluster

IFE, NND and SIN have introduced a new cluster: DECOM - Cluster for decomissioning and repurposing.

The IAEA Decom Centre has evolved into an International Cluster and many organisations have already expressed their interest in joining. IFE’s István Szőke and Tomas Nordlander were part of the kick-off and establishing of the DECOM cluster, which aims to enable a stronger connection between academic environments, research, innovation and business within the area of decommissioning and reuse of nuclear facilities, waste facilities, oil platforms, ships, dams, factories and onshore facilities.

IFE has become a key partner in national and international collaborative initiatives, and are specialized in deploying smart digital and robotic systems in hazardous sites. Much of this specialized unit’s work is currently focused on nuclear decommissioning challenges, but the unit also works in other domains, such as wasteplants and industrial facilities with high level safety demands.
