Finland in Front: The World’s Likely First Spent Fuel Repository Moves Toward Licensing
The year 2024 is shaping up to be a historic one for Posiva, the waste management organization owned by Finland’s two nuclear power plant utilities, Fortum and Teollisuuden Voima. The company is looking to receive regulatory approval of its operating license for the Onkalo deep geological repository for high-level radioactive waste by the end of the year.

Nuclear energy is already the largest source of zero carbon baseload electricity. The further deployment of new nuclear energy capacity in support of net zero carbon production goals is a logical extension. However, many changes in our design and operating strategy are necessary to effectively and efficiently address the need for process heat, district heating and hydrogen production in addition to electric generation. Digital twins are an important component of the path forward, providing an opportunity to explore the deployment space for new systems, to optimize operations and maintenance planning, and to enhance control strategies of these facilities supporting new missions. Digital twins bring together model based system engineering capabilities with sophisticated data management and integration strategies to facilitate design, planning, and real-time decision making. The panel will discuss the state of the art in digital twin technologies, considering each of these aspects.
