The underground storage facilities that are part of the former Čerkezovac barracks have been selected as a preferential site for the storage of low and medium radioactive waste because of its storage capacities that guarantee complete technical safety. The site is not prone to floods and it is sufficiently distanced from drinking water, the fund underlined.

Čerkezovac is not located in a zone of active faults and during the recent earthquakes all the facilities at Čerkezovac were undamaged, the fund added.

“The storage facilities for radioactive waste will be built according to EUROCODES 7 and 8 with an increased factor of safety so that they can withstand earthquakes with greater magnitudes than expected and so that structures at the centre can be safe during earthquakes with great destructive force,” the fund said.
