Beyond Decommissioning: The Redevelopment of Nuclear Facilities and Sites presents the most up-to-date research and guidance on the redevelopment of nuclear plants and sites. Consultant Michele Laraia extensively builds upon experience from the redevelopment of non-nuclear industrial sites, a technical field that has considerably pre-dated nuclear applications, to help the reader gain a very thorough and practical understanding of the potential redevelopment opportunities for decommissioned nuclear plants. Laraia emphasis the socio-economical and financial benefits to the very early planning for site reuse, how to manage the decommissioning transition, understand financial aspects and effectively utilise available resource. With an increasing number of decommissioning projects being conducted worldwide, it is critical that knowledge gained by experts with hands-on experience is passed on to the younger generation of nuclear professionals. This book describes the experiences of non-nuclear organizations who have reutilized the human, financial and physical site assets, with adaptions, for a new productive mission, making it a key reference for all parties associated with nuclear operation and decommissioning. Those responsible for nuclear operation and decommissioning are encouraged and stimulated to incorporate site reuse within an integrated, beginning-to-end view of their projects. The book also appeals to nuclear regulators as it highlighting more opportunities to complete nuclear decommissioning safely, speedily and in the best interests of all concerned parties.
