Key areas include advisory services in decommissioning, facility inventory database development, regulatory support for decommissioning, dose rate calculation and modelling, review and development of safety documentation for operation and decommissioning of nuclear facilities and last but not least training and lecturing.
Clients are supported directly through framework contracts or in an associate capacity.

Kind Consultancy s.r.o. provides a wide range of advisory and consultancy services in planning and implementation of nuclear decommissioning.

These services include:

  • Facility inventory database development for power and research reactors worldwide
  • Review and development of decommissioning plans for nuclear facilities
  • Nuclear regulatory authority support by elaboration of safety guides, independent reviews and technical studies
  • Advisory services in radiological characterization of fragmented reactor parts and support for their packaging
  • Radiation dose rate calculations for radioactive waste management (RAW) scenarios by using MERCURAD software
  • Periodical safety review – report development for nuclear facilities
  • Licensing and QA documentation elaboration for NPP classified equipment and RAW containers
  • Training and lecturing for different workshops and IAEA expert missions in Africa, Asia, Australia and  Europe
  • Cooperation with the Institute of Nuclear and Physical Engineering of the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava
