(ANSA) – ROME, JUN 15 – The dismantling of the former nuclear fabrication plant (Fn) in Bosco Marengo, the Piedmontese site where nuclear fuel was manufactured during the year, has been dismantled. This was announced by Sogin, the public company that deals with the decommissioning of former nuclear power plants and the management of radioactive waste, specifying that “it is the first Italian plant in which Sogin has completed the dismantling activities provided for in Phase 1, reaching the so-called state of brown field. A milestone – the company specifies – achieved through a significant acceleration in 2021 of about 16% of decommissioning activities “.

Sogin, which since its foundation has focused on sustainability in all its activities, has made itself available to offer some buildings of the Bosco Marengo plant, together with others of the decommissioned nuclear power plants of Caorso (Piacenza) and Garigliano (Caserta) , to protect the works of art of our country in the event of natural disasters, as part of a project to protect the artistic heritage promoted by the Ministry of Culture and included in the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (Pnrr).

The local and control authorities visited the area, welcomed by the president of Sogin Luigi Perri and the managing director Emanuele Fontani. This goal, explains Sogin in the note, “has made it possible to remove the radiological constraints and to declassify the areas and buildings where in the past the nuclear fuel elements were manufactured, which are once again usable as conventional environments”.
