The bid for contractors to deliver IT support systems to the decommissioning of the Norwegian nuclear infrastructure is now open. We seek the leading IT-experts within decommissioning and radioactive waste management and invite contractors from the international community to join our bidders’ conference.
Norwegian Nuclear Decommissioning
The newly established agency Norwegian Nuclear Decommissioning (NND) was created to safely and efficiently decommission the Norwegian nuclear infrastructure. This means that we will dismantle our research reactors and find a safe and permanent solution for storage and disposal of reactor fuel, radioactive material and other radioactive waste from research, industry, military and health care. We plan to build “down” our nuclear infrastructure whilst building “up” a national facility where radioactive material will be delivered, treated, stored and disposed.
NND needs IT-tools to support the agency’s main processes. These are the planning and execution of the decommissioning and the handling of radioactive waste.
The systems will ensure the safety of employees, contractors and the environment, and will allow us to follow all construction material from inception to final disposal. It will also organise the operation and maintenance of all construction and facilities that needs to be carried out alongside on-site activities.
We aim to reuse international best-practice methods and tools and to procure established work methods with tools support, not the other way around. NND has several existing tools that must be factored in when proposing solutions, as well as the use of IAEA standards, external interfaces and regulatory compliance.
NND will host a bidders’ conference for the procurements of a Decommissioning IT support system and a Waste management IT support system on 20th April 2021, 14:00-16:00 CET. The conference will be hosted on Microsoft Teams, details

Goals for the support systems
These support systems must ensure safe decommissioning and waste management. They shall increase safety and security and efficiently control, automate and connect processes. We wish to use data as the basis for decisions, and the ability to reuse solutions and data where possible. This should be done through the enhancement and augment of data between subject matters, and “one stop” data gathering.
