|Project title||Development of an approach for the combined production control of disassembly and postprocessing processes in plant dismantling (DemoSVer)|
|Project duration||01.08.2014 – 31.10.2016|
The dismantling of disused industrial plants such as nuclear power plants or refineries is a challenge for the control of the logistic processes. An inappropriate coupling of dismantling and post-processing processes can cause significant logistical shortfalls such as high stocks or long lead times. Therefore the objective of this research project is the development of a new method for the control of dismantling and post-processing processes in plant decommissioning. The method considers the characteristics of industrial plants and allows a purposeful control of logistics processes under uncertain circumstances.
Publications about the project
Compared to conventional demolition processes (e.g. living houses) the demolition of industrial plants, such as nuclear power plants, is more challenging for the management of logistics processes (e.g. due to spatial and legal restrictions). Therefore the demolition of a nuclear power plant can take up to ten years and incur costs by 4 billion euros. Controlling the logistics processes can reduce these costs and the required time significantly.
