Storage hall

Storage hall for low- and medium-level radioactive waste

The storage hall for low- and medium-level waste was built during a second construction phase. This building is 98m long, 33m wide and almost 20m high and has storage capacity for 1,144 containers. It consists of a reception and a storage area. Until further notice this storage hall is only used for conventional storage, such as empty drums and containers and replacement materials.

At a later stage the storage hall should also be used for the interim storage of decommissioning waste from the Swiss nuclear power plants.
