"One of the iconic project that I am working on and in which SOCOTEC has been involved for a very long time is CGO. CGO is a nuclear waste repository that is going to be constructed 5 hundred meters underground. Our involvement in that project at SOCOTEC is about seven years old. The dimension is amazing and the coordination between partners is fruitful and powerful."
