Obrigheim: Interim storage facility for low-level and intermediate-level waste

BGZ operates the Obrigheim interim storage facility for low-level and intermediate-level waste. The facility is used to store residues from the operation and dismantling of the Obrigheim nuclear power plant, in particular, until this waste can be put safely into final storage at the Konrad repository.

The packaged low-level and intermediate-level waste consists, for example, of contaminated plant components, tools, protective clothing or used filters. AZO was commissioned in 2008. As the low-level and intermediate-level radioactive waste produced during the operation and dismantling of the nuclear power plant is stored here, these interim storage facilities play an important role in the dismantling of the nuclear power plant.
