“The Central Organisation for Radioactive Waste (Covra) has applied to the country’s nuclear regulator for a change in its licence to allow the construction of a new multi-functional storage building for low and intermediate-level waste at its site in Nieuwdorp, in the municipality of Borssele, the Netherlands.

In order to be able to build the Multifunctional Storage Building (MOG), Covra’s permit under the Nuclear Energy Act must be changed. Covra said it submitted all the documents required for this change – including an environmental impact assessment (EIA) and a supplement to its safety report – to the Authority for Nuclear Safety and Radiation Protection (ANVS) on 5 August.” Lees verder op www.world-nuclear-news.org.
