Radioactive emissions from the Institute for Energy Technology (IFE) in Halden

Published 25.10.2016, updated 25.10.2016 11:35

On Monday 24 October at 13.45 times had IFE Halden a release of radioactive iodine. The radioactive discharge was due to a technical failure during treatment of the fuel in the reactor hall. Emissions are low.

The people who stayed in the reactor hall during discharge evacuated the hall when the alarm went off. They have since been built and made every effort to identify the cause and extent of the leak.

NRPA was notified of the incident by IFE this morning, Tuesday, 25 October.

‘’Our focus now is that IFE stopped the spill, says Director Per Strand at NRPA.

‘’We are in continuous contact with the IFE. We will open a new supervision relating to this incident to uncover how this could happen and why we were not notified until the day after.

According to the information NRPA has received so far, this discharge will not have any consequences for health or the environment outside the plant.
