NorthStar, AREVA videos show companies’ decommissioning expertise

By Vermont Energy Partnership

If a picture is worth a thousand words, how many words are two videos worth?

Those who attended the past two NDCAP meetings may recall the excellent presentations delivered by NorthStar CEO Scott State and AREVA representative Frederick Bailly on NorthStar’s plan to decommission Vermont Yankee and on their respective firms’ expertise in deconstruction and decommissioning.

During Mr. State’s presentation on May 25, he showed the audience a video of several previous projects NorthStar has completed over the past several years. This video can be viewed at the link below:

AREVA also shared a video of their Boiling Water Reactor decommissioning process, complete with high-tech underwater band saws, which can be viewed at the link below:
