This study provides an independent, outside-in estimate of the cost and schedule risks of nuclear waste storage projects. Nuclear waste storage is here defined as special facilities for the wet and dry storage and disposal of high-level (HILW) and low and intermediate-level nuclear waste (LILW). The study analyzed cost and schedule risk profiles of past, completed nuclear waste storage (n = 22), nuclear new builds (n = 194) and underground mining projects (n = 31).
