Abstract: Within the framework of the TACIS (Technical Aid to the Commonwealth of Independent States) programme, the European Commission (EC) sponsored a 24-months project aimed at improving decommissioning expertise in Russia. The project was run in collaboration with the country's nuclear plant operator, Concern Energoatom. A main goal was to encourage exchange of experience with EU nuclear utilities to benefit Russian decommissioning activities. Project tasks included full reviews of: the status of decommissioning in the Russian Federation, state of the art technology in Europe and the specific situatuion at the pilots units Novovoronezh 1&2. Training sessions on various decommissioning related topics were organized, with recommendations issued and discussed during a final workshop. One of the most demanding aspects of the project was to estimate the cost of the decommissioning. based on the data from the pilots units. The main result of this task are reported here.
