Sogin completes dismantling of Latina steam generator shields

Italy’s state-owned nuclear decommissioning and radioactive waste management company Sogin has completed the demolition of the steam generator shields at the Latina nuclear power plant reactor building.

The shields were the six reinforced concrete structures that insulated the upper pipes, which connected the six boilers to the reactor building.

For their removal, Sogin used a controlled demolition technique. The shields were cut into sections at height and then moved to ground level using a specially installed tower crane.
