The key INPP function has been changed to „decommissioning organization&quot; after Unit 2 reactor final shutdown. This cardinally effected on whole company's strategy, system of financing, list of actions priorities and company's organizational and management structure. T he in-house project UP01 shall cover and determine the entire D&D exercise, starting from choosing preferred solutions and ending in the physical dismantling of the reactors. Obligatory data collections, mandatory radiological characterization issues should be resolved. I am sure that using in-house project approach INPP will be better prepared for the future to resolve obvious problems. These questions were addressed to key specialists of INPP (key INPP personal from the Technological Service, Waste Management Service, Radiation Protection Service, Project Management Service, Dismantling & Decontamination Service, Design Department and Engineering Department). These selected specialists are very highly motivated and have considerable expertise in respect of RBMK technology: reactor maintenance, operation, assembly and installation.

Assumptions Field Assumption Justification Overall decommissioning Global Decommissioning Plan (GDP) has identified all possible costs GDP was built-up from estimates developed and refined successively in successive planning documents (PDP, FDP, U1DP0, etc.). GDP accounts for real costs over 2000-2010 and further development of ongoing projects. Reactor dismantling GDP assumes immediate dismantling FDP concluded that dismantling of reactors is possible and foresees long-term interim storage of associated “orphan” waste. Macroeconomic Rises in salaries, energy costs and other prices do not exceed the values presented Macroeconomic study commissioned by Ministry of Energy based on best available data.
Risks Other? Field Risk Quantification of impact Design & Build Major Investment Projects (ongoing) Additional works, changes in regulatory requirements 20% (60 m Euro approx.) Excludes indirect impact of any further delays. Build-only Major Investment Projects (planned) Additional works, changes in regulatory requirements 15% (50 m Euro approx.) Reactor dismantling Revisions of scope and unforeseeable variations 50% (20 m Euro approx.) Bitumized waste Upgrading of interim storage into long-term near surface disposal (foreseen in GDP based on preliminary study) is not possible. 50 m Euro (approx.) 14,000 m 3 to be retrieved conditioned and disposed of in NSR Other Investments derived from Final Decommissioning Plan Revisions of scope and unforeseeable variations 10% (10 m Euro approx.) Total 190 m Euro (approx.)
Costs well-founded (cf. FDP & Greifswald) but significant funding gap
Benefit to EU MS out of Ignalina NPP experience: value added for the whole EU’s nuclear sector through ICCC and other intn’l projects
Lithuania is contributing to the expected level: more than 10 % of costs
Seeking EU funds to meet funding gap (with inherent risks )

Carrying out all the projects using internal INPP resources saves decommissioning funds substantially, allows to preserve qualified staff at the enterprise, accumulate unique knowledge and expertise, strengthen capacities of main designed departments of the enterprise and preconditions the opportunity to participate in international decommissioning projects in future.
We apply expertise, knowledge and motivation of functional departments, qualified specialists and workers, which has been acquired during the period of construction and operation.
In consideration of the current situation at the INPP, it is necessary to establish new job places for the needs of the INPP, develop internal potential of the INPP and strengthen its abilities.

The loss of knowledge and expertise that are necessary for safe, efficient and transparent implementation of reactors dismantling works :
Knowledge is being imparted by humans not by "lifeless" archives or computer systems. Technical specialists rather than general profile specialists are required.
Uncertainties, that affect safety occupational and cost:
High-quality and efficient analysis of R3 zone is required. In order to carry out sampling and measurement and eliminate uncertainties , the key tasks should envisage the complexity of works, mass of waste, ensuring access to materials.
Funding withdrawal - it is necessary to ensure the execution of UP01 project major works.
Changes of normative framework and strategies are possible .

Irradiated graphite is seldom managed, because such operations are expensive .
Expenditure depends on input data quality .
Input data should be specific for each reactor and optimally fit for decision-making - especially decisions which relate to such waste withdrawal, processing, decontamination or recycling for final disposal as well as seeking to demonstrate the acceptability and safety of technologies .
Does Ignalina NPP own all the data on irradiated graphite ?

Issues, related to the irradiated graphite, should not be addressed alone. By sharing experience and planning in advance bounded investigative and development works, we have an opportunity to achieve success .
The INPP team is convinced that management of waste from reactor should be concerted with dismantling technology. The lack of such integration may affect the whole INPP decommissioning programme .
The INPP team has the potential to accomplish the majority of works (for example, to carry out sampling. The INPP has necessary laboratories, the INPP personnel is pro-active, we have 15 tons of pure graphite for establishment of stands). All the missing parts will be developed within the framework of 2011-2029 enterprise's activity strategy.

INFORMATION ABOUT THE CAUSES OF UNIT 1 MAIN CIRCULATION CIRCUIT SEALING FAILURE OCCURRED DURING ITS DECONTAMINATION On 5 October 2010 during implementation of the scheduled works foreseen in Project B12 “Decontamination of internal surfaces of SE Ignalina NPP Main Circulation Circuit, Blowing, Cooling and Water Purification Systems” – Unit 1 circuit decontamination – seal failure has occurred in one of the components which resulted in the flowing out of the chemical agents (nitrogen acid (1%) and potassium permanganate) used for decontamination outside of the circuit boundaries. Since the strict safety requirements are applied for implementation of this project, the works are performed in the leak-tight rooms, the chemical agents and substances contaminated by radioactive nuclides have drained through the specific drainage systems. In order to ascertain the causes of this technological incident the Commission consisting of representatives of the employer of the project (Ignalina NPP) and the contractor of the project (JSC “Specialus Montažas-NTP”) was formed. “ The Commission has concluded that responsibility for this technological incident falls on Contractor implementing project B12. The project implementation technology proposed by the Contractor had some shortcomings which caused the incident”, - the chairman of the Commission, the head of INPP Technological Service Vigantas Galkauskas stated. In opinion of the Commission Chairman the most essential is that neither INPP employees nor the environment have suffered. Moreover, INPP specialists have ascertained the causes of these malfunctions in the project implementation, so analogical technical problems shall not repeat while implementing a similar project in the future.
MCC sealing failure has occurred during Unit 1 Main Circulation Circuit decontamination due to the shortcomings of the decontamination technology proposed by the Contractor. The technology proposed by the Contractor was in fact not tested in nuclear industry enterprises before. It contradicts the Technical Specification regulations of the Public Procurement Tender for the implementation of this project.
It should be added that according to the facts stated the following conclusion can be made: the contract for the project B12 implementation signed with the Contractor – an economic operators group acting on the basis of joint activity agreement – JSC “Specialus Montažas-NTP” (Lithuania), Lithuanian Energy Institute (LEI), JSC “All-Russian Research Institute for NPP Operation” (VNIAES, Russia) on 12 January 2010, was signed without taking into consideration the fact that the Contractor did not comply with the requirements stated in the Technical Specifications of the tender.
