Key Developments in the Nuclear Decommissioning Market

  • In 2022, the Entergy Corporation decided to shut down the nuclear power reactor at Palisades, situated on the shores of Lake Michigan. This nuclear power facility could produce 800MW of electricity. Following the shutdown, the reactor's fuel was carefully removed and transferred to the spent fuel pool for cooling. Once the cooling process is complete, the fuel will be moved to the secure independent spent fuel storage facility on the station grounds. Entergy Corporation aims to complete the decommissioning of the nuclear reactor by 2041, aligning with its long-term business objectives.
  • BHI Energy, a prominent power generation and delivery service provider in the United States, experienced significant development in 2022. Westinghouse Electric Company LLC, a renowned name in the nuclear industry, announced signing a deal to acquire BHI Energy.
