WP4 - Demonstration of monitoring

Work Package 4: Demonstration of monitoring implementation at repository like conditions

Preparing for implementation of repository monitoring requires demonstration of monitoring technologies at full-scale and under the in-situ conditions that will be present within the repository environment. Demonstration requires the consideration of the application of individual technologies and systems utilising several technologies designed at integrated monitoring of multiple parameters using multiple techniques.

The objectives of WP4 are to:

- Demonstrate new technology developments under in-situ conditions in the Finnish, Swedish, French and Swiss concepts.

- Demonstrate the development of a monitoring system design utilising multiple technologies and linked to a specific safety case.

- Utilise existing experience in near-field monitoring to provide guidance on monitoring system design, e.g. by examining whether existing monitoring technologies can provide information on the required parameters, at the required frequency and accuracy.
