Finland’s Posiva Oy has launched a project for modelling the groundwater chemistry in the bedrock of the site for the final disposal of used nuclear fuel far into the future using one of the most efficient computers in the world. Posiva, which is responsible for the final disposal of used nuclear fuel, is jointly owned by Finnish nuclear utilities Fortum and Teollisuuden Voima Oyj. “This is probably the most demanding modelling of groundwater chemistry to date, anywhere in the world. The goal of the project is to verify the balancing of long-term safety with economic sustainability. This will open the way to industrial final disposal far into the future,” Posiva noted.
