It is funded by the Norwegian Government through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs; the contractor for the works is Institute for Energy Technology (IFE) in Norway.
New equipment and software will be used to implement modern technologies of three-dimensional modeling and visualization into the Chernobyl NPP decommissioning process.
The Center, created within the project will allow planning, training, planning and control of radiation doses, and visualization of radiation scenarios to perform various tasks. It will enable to lower labor costs, radiation exposure of staff, to improve efficiency and safety of dismantling, radioactive materials management. In addition, the Center will be used to demonstrate the decommissioning process to the public and authorities.
