The task of the BGZ is the safe interim storage of radioactive waste. The sole shareholder of the company, which was founded in 2017, is the Federal Republic of Germany, represented by the Federal Ministry for the Environment.
In addition to the central interim storage facilities in Ahaus and Gorleben, BGZ has also been operating eleven decentralized interim storage facilities for high-level radioactive waste at the sites of nuclear power plants since January 1, 2019. Twelve further storage facilities with low-level and medium-level radioactive waste have been gradually taken over since 2020.
In close cooperation with the BGZ, NeoNext created, designed and implemented the concept for the infomobile and pavilion, which has been touring Germany since summer 2022 and providing information about the work of the BGZ. The first stop was in Erfurt.
The mobile includes a pavilion that will be set up on site and under which the objects – parts of which can be updated in terms of content – will be arranged so that the exhibition is barrier-free. In bad weather, however, they can also be arranged and viewed inside the mobile home.
With the objects and the technology involved it was a particular challenge not to exceed the permissible load for the vehicle. An emissions-friendlier solution was found, which also makes it possible to steer the vehicle with a regular car driver’s license.
