The dismantling of Switzerland’s Mühleberg NPP is making good progress, plant operator BKW/FMB has said. BKW/FMB said 102 of the 418 nuclear fuel rods had already been transported to the Zwilag interim storage facility in Würenlingen in northern Switzerland where they were reloaded into two Castor storage casks. The remaining 310-plus elements will be taken to the storage site by 2024. A further 66 trips are necessary to remove all the fuel elements BKW said. These use normal trucks, said Stefan Klute, head of decommissioning and disposal. The dates of the transports are not disclosed for security reasons.
