Topic: What makes a Nuclear Decommissioning Project Successful? (How benchmarking will help your company).
Overview: The estimates of costs for the decommissioning of Sellafield have risen from £17 billion in 2006 to upwards of £120 billion in 2015. Estimates have risen equally for decommissioning projects in other countries and stakeholders have limited understanding of the causes of these huge increases.
Diletta’s decommissioning research applies a methodology that combines qualitative and quantitative analysis. The data is benchmarked to allow comparison of projects to identify best practices and generate ideas for improvement.
The ultimate aim of the research is to investigate the possible causation between the NDPs’ characteristics and the NDPs’ performance and to develop guidelines to improve the selection, planning and delivery of future NDPs.
Diletta Colette Invernizzi graduated from The Politecnico di Milano (Italy) with an MSc in Management Engineering. Her dissertation which was an investment and risks analysis of energy storage systems, through the development and application of Real Options theory won the prestigious Gustavo Sclocchi Thesis Award and was published in the scientific journal ‘Energy’.
Diletta is currently a PhD student at the University of Leeds where she is researching the challenges of nuclear decommissioning from the project management perspective.
