Nuclear waste management

Our staff has over 25 years of experience in rock mechanics consulting related to geological nuclear waste management. We designed, executed and reported Posiva’s Olkiluoto Spalling Experiment (POSE) in Olkiluoto from 2009 to 2015. The unique experiment was conducted to establish the in situ rock mass strength of the spent nuclear fuel disposal site.
