Based on feedback we received from the participants of our last large scale event on nuclear decommissioning (www.ife.no/hrpdecom2017), we are arranging this event in 2018 and planning another in 2019 (www.ife.no/digidecom2019).

The workshop will bring together a multidisciplinary group representing the professional community working on implementation and oversight of decommissioning for discussing a roadmap for modernising nuclear decommissioning practices through adoption of advanced plant information management methods. Examples for subjects to be discussed:

  • Integrated management systems for  OPEX and early decommissioning planning.
  • Application of advanced plant information methods at legacy sites.
  • Digital techniques for  regulatory communication.
  • Advanced techniques for knowledge exchange and training.
  • Digital twins supporting testing of robotics and other technologies/methods.
    • Document management
    • Product/configuration management
    • Requirements management
    • Container loading management
    • Tender and contractor management
    • Risk and uncertainty management
    • Project management



The workshop is held at Scandic Lillehammer Hotel in Lillehammer, Norway.
