CIGEO (France)


As a reminder, CIGEO is a French project concerning a center for radioactive waste storage in deep geological substrates. It has been designed to stock high-activity, long-life radioactive waste produced by all of the French nuclear installations until their dismantlement and by the treatment of used fuel utilized in nuclear power plants. This investment is estimated between 15 to 36 Billion Euros and is meant to operate for more than a century and is composed by surface installations to receive and prepare the packages of waste, and underground structures located at some 500 meters deep in a layer of shale to store the packages of nuclear waste.

The DOC, MAINT, ILS and STOCK QUICKBRAIN modules are now operated as an integrated Logistic Support Database to centralize data produced by the different engineering companies working on the project such as; Tractebel engineering, Airbus Defence & Space, Cegelec and SNC-Lavalin. QUICKBRAIN will allow the engineering team to optimize the project support global costs through the engineering process to contribute to select the best technological configuration/price solution.
