Tailor-made solutions for nuclear requirements

During the emplacement process of radioactive waste in former mines and/or suitable caverns, safety is of particular importance. Storage cases with contaminated waste require the design of the plant technology according to relevant nuclear regulations (e.g. KTA guidelines and other national / international regulations).

Over many decades, we have built up this knowledge, developed the technology and the products, together as partners, in cooperation with industry, standards committees, institutes and public-law companies. With this background, we offer a sound basis for the planning, construction and operation of repositories on international markets.

Our extensive experience in the handling and storage of radioactive and toxic waste, as well as our know-how in the execution of complete facilities, from design to manufacture, delivery and assembly, form the basis for the execution of projects. For plants for the safe handling and storage of radioactive and toxic waste, the SIEMAG TECBERG group has designed, manufactured and supplied a number of special components in close cooperation with our customers.
