The joint venture NOELL/NIS received the order for the project and planning work and execution of the dismantling of the nuclear power plant Niederaichbach from the Kernforschungszen-trum Karlsruhe. According to the present situation of the work progress a green meadow planted with green bushes shall be created in about 4 years instead of the present nuclear power plant. The dismantling and the disposal of radioactive internals in the reactor are hereby the technically most sophisticated and most difficult activities. Target is to prove by this work that it is possible according to the present level of engineering to perform the disposal of a nuclear reactor without danger. This can improve to successfully obtain the political acceptance for future nuclear engineering projects.
