Engineering & Construction Planning

WTI per­forms plan­ning and en­gi­nee­ring ser­vi­ces for new plants and re­con­struc­tion pro­jects in the nu­cle­ar field.

The en­gi­nee­ring ser­vi­ces do not only com­prise plan­ning ser­vi­ces and prepa­ra­tion of ap­pli­ca­tion docu­ments but also in­clude pro­ject con­trol­ling, su­per­vi­sion and turn key con­struc­tion.

Main topics

  • Buil­ding de­sign, con­cep­tual de­sign, pro­ject en­gi­nee­ring and su­per­vi­sion du­ring con­struc­tion, ge­ne­ral engi­nee­ring ser­vi­ces
  • Pro­cess engi­nee­ring, plant con­struc­tion with do­cu­men­ta­tion of the equip­ment, design of ven­ti­la­tion sys­tems
  • Re­con­struc­tion and de­com­mis­sio­ning plan­ning
  • Struc­tural engi­nee­ring, struc­tural ana­ly­sis, 2D- and 3D-en­gi­nee­ring, coor­di­na­tion of system in­ter­fa­ces
  • Design of fa­ci­li­ties for the sto­rage of spent fuel in casks and for the sto­rage of ra­dio­ac­tive waste

Planning of Storage Facilities (WTI-Design)

  • Opti­mized con­struc­tion made of in-situ con­crete and pre­fa­bri­cated parts with pillars and roof frames
  • Passive cooling by natural con­vec­tion with air inlets and outlets
  • Ar­range­ment of casks in an array or tight ar­range­ment, de­pen­ding on the ther­mal out­put of the casks
  • Optimi­za­tion of plant se­cu­rity
