Radioactive Waste Management
Final Disposal (Spent Fuel and LILW)
Vesa’s spark towards nuclear power ignited during a high school course in nuclear physics. Vesa thinks that there is something magical in nuclear power. It is astonishing that you can safely control particles which are so tiny they can’t be observed with human senses, harness their potential through complex processes and produce huge amounts of energy. As expert in nuclear engineering Vesa works amidst many topics, but radioactive waste management has probably become the discipline of most personal interest. His job has mainly consisted of writing technical expert reports, which have aimed to improve the safety, cost-efficiency and environmental friendliness of waste management technologies used by clients.
Master of Science in Engineering – Energy Technology & Nuclear Engineering
Vesa has knowhow in the disciplines of radioactive waste management, final disposal, nuclear D&D and plant life management.
In these areas Vesa has for example worked among subjects related to:
- handling, treatment and disposal of LILW,
- encapsulation and final disposal process of spent fuel,
- planning the handling and logistics of D&D wastes, and
- development of ageing management procedures for NPPs.
