2009:31 A Review of the Decommissioning Costs of the Ranstad Site

The main objective of this study has been to review the future cost to decommission and dismantling the industrial area at the site of the old uranium mine at Ranstad in Sweden.

Analyses of some detailed comparative empirical information have been used in the context of preliminary “bench-marking” studies. The estimated costs for decommissioning of the old uranium mine in Ranstad have been compared with actual costs from other relevant decommissioning projects. In this way it has been possible to give a preliminary qualitative statement about the accuracy of the Ranstad cost estimate.
