Context and challenges
This nuclear reactor is located on a major nuclear site in France. This reactor was commissioned in 1964, and then operated for about ten years. By decree issued on 17 April 1980, the operator of this site was authorised to re-use this installation to store radioactive substances.
This installation, which does not comply with the current safety requirements for storage facilities, has not received any radioactive substances for storage purposes since 2008. The permanent shutdown of the facility is planned by the end of 2023. The decommissioning file must be sent to the ASN (French Nuclear Safety Authority) before 15 December 2019 in accordance with the Environment Code and the Nuclear Safety and Radiation Protection Mission letter (6 July 2018). The facility involves many documents necessary to organise the decommissioning, and the teams are facing difficulties using all of them.
In order to manage the decommissioning operations on this site and boost the efficiency of information management, this client tasked Assystem with implementing a “document to data” approach using the GDI solution (Global Data Inquirer: an Assystem Artificial Intelligence solution to read, understand, and structure the technical archives of complex installations).
