(TEPCO) to continue to deliver high integrity containers (HICs) to store secondary radioactive waste from the processing of radioactive liquid effluents at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in Japan.

“We are honoured that TEPCO continues to select us to provide HICs on this important project,” said Sandy Taylor, president, Nuclear, SNC-Lavalin, in a statement. “The containers are essential for the clean-up and containment of the radioactive waste at Fukushima and are a key component of the water decontamination systems.”

HICS are one element of a portfolio of nuclear products and technologies offered by SNC-Lavalin for nuclear waste management.
