Final geological repository will be world’s first Posiva has been working for several decades to develop a concept for final disposal and demonstrate long-term safety. Courtesy Posiva. Finnish nuclear waste management company Posiva announced its encapsulation plant building in Olkiluoto is ready to proceed with the installation of nuclear-related processing systems after construction contractor Skanska Talonrakennus Oy delivered the facility on schedule at the end of May.

The encapsulation plant is part of a €500m final disposal facility, construction of which began in June 2019. The plant is where spent nuclear fuel is received, dried and packed into final disposal copper and cast-iron canisters for final storage.

Posiva said the encapsulation plant will use “unique” nuclear technology which had not seen service anywhere else in the world as of yet.
