VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland is the largest multi-technological applied research organization in northern Europe. We drive sustainable growth, tackle the biggest global challenges of our time, and turn them into growth opportunities. We go beyond the obvious to help the society and companies to grow through technological innovations. VTT is at the sweet spot where innovation and business come together.
The dECOmm co-innovation project enhances the efficiency and safety of decommissioning by developing digital models, risk assessment and collaboration in business ecosystems. VTT’s role is to work closely with companies to bring innovation for efficiency in decommissioning processes. In parallel, VTT’s own ongoing FiR1 research reactor decommissioning project will produce valuable information through the dismantling process. The domestic lessons learnt can be integrated with new technology solutions for enhanced decommissioning of international nuclear power plants. In addition, VTT continues to study nuclear power plant construction materials, structures, ICT and robotics in its new, state-of-the-art laboratory in the Centre of Nuclear Safety and to support both Finnish and international nuclear power companies on the safe and economical operation of power plants.

EcoDeco Project- Smart Solution for Nuclear Decommissioning: Development of a new digital solution and service for nuclear decommissioning.
Semi-automated creation of digital twins, utilizing e.g. artificial intelligence and creation of related information content that is important for the decommissioning, forms the basis for Swecon’s new solutions and services. The aim is to create a digital twin platform business for the decommissioning of nuclear power plants to maximize recycling of deconstruction waste, visualize current situation and what-if scenarios as well as optimize planning and execution using intelligent models. New business requires researching, testing and combining existing and “up and coming” technologies and exploring future opportunities. The goal is to achieve market leadership in digitalization of nuclear decommissioning.
