The Nuclear Baltic Map project is part of the Baltic Sea Infotour project.

See the preliminary map.

Nuclear Baltic Map Project

With the Baltic Sea Info Tour 2010 we focused on gathering information about nuclear issues around the Baltic Sea, images of these places and facilities, operators, critical groups, links and other resources to be used for the Nuclear Baltic Map. Now we will work on these materials to produce some brief introductions to these facilities and issues for the Nuclear Baltic Sea brochure ‒ this will be an important result of the infotour.


Texts

general issues

  • radioactive contamination of the Baltic Sea
    • impacts of atomic bombs tests, Chernobyl accident, Sellafield, NPPs
    • nuclear transports across the sea -> risks of accidents of the ships, collisions with other transports of hazardous materials; low level radiation (without accidents) increasing health risks
      • depleted uranium waste transports, uranium transports, radioactive waste transports, fuel element transports
      • nuclear harbour in St. Petersburg and its extension
    • increase of risks through new uranium mining plans, new NPP developments around the sea + repository plans beneath the sea
  • Aland in the shadow of nuclear power[1] - (not enough)
  • impacts of the radioactivity in the Baltic Sea to Denmark?
    • no nuclear facilities but most of the impacts...
  • the (not only Baltic Sea-related) impacts of Chernobyl - (T has Russian text?)
  • Uranium Mining around the Baltic Sea
    • history of uranium mining in Sweden and Finland
    • current run for uranium in Sweden and Finland
    • risks of uranium mining for concerned communities and environment


NPPs


  • Soznovyj Bor (NPP site, waste burning & processing facilities)
    • it's the name of the town next to Leningrad NPP - shouldn't we use the title "Leningrad NPP" instead of the name of the city? (it seems the Russian activists usually call it "Leningrad NPP", too)
    • didn't find any information about waste burning + processing facilities there... --Falk 08:06, 11 December 2010 (CET)
    • In the storages of the Leningrad nuclear power plant in Sosnovy Bor, there is spent fuel equivalent to about 5000 tons of uranium. Since there is no intention to reprocess it, it will probably stay there for a long time.[20] In Sosnovy Bor, there is also a regional management centre for radioactive wastes. In the storages of the centre there is 60 000 m3 of radioactive waste. Its total activity is about 10 petabecquerels (PBq = 1015 Bq).[21]


Repositories

  • Onkalo[22] (Finland)
    • final repository for HAW from Olkiluoto and Loviisa on the Olkiluoto NPP site
  • Olkiluoto VLJ Repository[23] (Finland)
  • final repository at the Loviisa NPP site[24]
    • for LMAW, and possible also for radioactive waste from decommissioning Loviisa and Olkiluoto NPP
  • Estonian Repository
    • In Estonia, near the town of Sillamäe on the shore of the Gulf of Finland there is a large waste depository.[20] In Estonia, near the town of Sillamäe on the shore of the Gulf of Finland there is a large (50 hectares) waste depository. The total radioactive waste amount there is 12 million tons and of that amount about half originates from the enrichment of uranium. An international project for the restoration of the area was completed in 2008.[21]
  • Radon (Latvia) - (nearly done)
    • closed repository?
  • Lithuanian repositories (two sites) - (promised by Li)
  • ZLN Lubmin[25] (Germany)
  • Clab repository[26] (Sweden)
    • central Swedish interim repository for spent fuel elements (HAW) on the Oskarshamn NPP site
  • final disposal site for LMAW at the Oskarshamn NPP site (Sweden)
  • SFR Repository[27] (Sweden)
    • final repository for LMAW from Swedish reactors


Uranium mining


Other sites


Appendix

Lists of:

  • proposed sites for uranium mining, exploration etc. in Finland and Sweden (and more?) as well as former mining and exploration projects in the area


Requirements for each facility page

  • a picture of the facility that we are allowed to use
  • infobox with technical information about the facility, for example:
    • Operator
    • Capacity
    • (How much radiation it sets free?)
    • when started to build, when will be ready, delays... (depending of facility)
    • How much a power plant produces
    • type of reactor
    • about exploration sites: Sizes
    • how much waste a reactor produces per year, information about the fuel
    • how many employees
    • number of people living around the facility
    • number of accidents
  • short text (1'500 characters max.)
  • contact details of critical groups working against this facility
    • group name, phone, email, website, postal address
  • links to operator and critical websites
