Environmental management for nuclear power plants

Environmental Monitoring at Nuclear Licensed Sites



TÜV SÜD specialises in Environmental Monitoring and Assessment for groundwater, surface water, human health, and sediments at Nuclear Licensed Sites. This capability has developed over a decade and encompasses monitoring of radiological and other contamination.

Site monitoring for groundwater, surface water, and sediment management is a key statutory requirement for a Nuclear Licensed Site. Every nuclear site has challenges due to prevailing and legacy land use. A key challenge is to delineate the conceptual site model and verify how subsurface contamination is interacting with the environment. The vital element of monitoring is the collection, assessment of data, and development of a quantitative risk assessment framework to calibrate exposure risks to human health and the environment. There is often a statutory requirement to attain regulatory adequateness through the use of monitoring reports and data.

Within the country, this is a growing market in the nuclear industry, where reliable technical capability and cost-effective delivery are key to meeting expectations.
