Posiva's web site renewed

Posiva's web site has been renewed in terms of not only the visual outlook and construction, but also the content. We welcome any feedback on the new site; please use the form available in the Contact Posiva section.

Navigation has also changed on the new site; the links to the various sections are now provided on the left hand side of the Home page. New sections added to the site include Current News, and Safety. Current News section contains published news releases and other current topics. Safety pages provide an overview of the most relevant safety aspects related to final disposal.


As before, Posiva section contains e.g. contact data for Posiva employees and the organisation chart. A new element in this section is a presentation related to recruiting. Nuclear Waste and Nuclear Waste Management are now found under the same section heading, and new content focusing particularly on licensing is provided under Nuclear Waste Management.  


Final Disposal section provides information on the same topics as before (including grounds for final disposal, repository, retrievability, costs and schedule), but the construction of the section has been changed and the content of the section supplemented.


Research & Development section now contains an abundance of new information on e.g. site investigations carried out above ground, the ONKALO underground research facility and the development of release barriers.


The Databank still contains the Posiva Reports and Work Reports published by Posiva, news bulletins and brochures, Annual Reports as well as Nuclear Waste Management Reports. Picture material of print quality is also available in this section.


General contact information to Posiva is found in the bottom bar. Contact information for individual Posiva employees is provided on the Personnel and Contact Information pages of the Posiva section. You can also use the form on the Contact Posiva page to e.g. send us questions related to Posiva and final disposal, or to submit feedback on the new web site.
