The assessment of the environmental and public impact of the on-shore storage facility for dispositioned N/SM reactor compartments in the North-West region of Russia
This paper deals with the environmental and public impact of radiation factors of the land-based storage facility being designed for dispositioned N/SM reactor compartments in the Russian North-West region. The capacity is sized to accommodate reactor compartments of all the Russian North Navy N/SM after their disposition. Based on the study results, it can be concluded that the creation of this facility will not lead to worsening the radiation situation for the environment and public in this region over permissible limits, both in normal operating conditions and emergency situations.
