The outgoing Norwegian government is proposing additional allocations to clean up after the Norwegian nuclear research at Kjeller and in Halden.

Next year, the government wants Norway to add NOK 106 million to the current NOK 797 million in the allocation for nuclear clean-up. NND and the Department of Energy Technology (IFE) would receive half each of the 800 million.

The four nuclear reactors that have been in operation must be taken care of, and the clean-up after the Norwegian nuclear age is demanding and expensive. It will take 20-25 years, according to the Norwegian Nuclear Decommissioning (NND).

The goal is for the areas to be free of traces of the advanced nuclear research in Halden and at Kjeller in 2050.
