During military activities on the territory of Chornobyl exclusion zone in February-March 2022 the buildings, property, vehicles, and equipment for environmental monitoring and dosimetry control, which belonged to SSE “Ecocentre”, were looted or destroyed.
State Specialized Enterprise “Ecocentre” (SSE “Ecocentre”) is a Ukrainian governmental organization located on the territory of the Chornobyl exclusion zone. Its main purpose is to provide dosimetry control and environmental monitoring in the Chornobyl exclusion zone.
Specific areas of activity of SSE “Ecocentre” are:
• Radiation and ecological monitoring of the natural environment;
• Radiation and dosimetry control;
• Expert support of regulatory authorities, storage operators and radwaste suppliers in the field of RW characterization;
• Scientific-analytical and research works;
• Water protection activities;
• Implementation of projects aimed at rehabilitation of the Chornobyl exclusion zone.
The aim of the current project, financed in the framework of the Norwegian Government Action Plan, is to replace some of the looted and destroyed dosimetry and dosimetry related equipment at SSE “Ecocentre” so the organization can resume personnel safety and monitoring activities at the Chornobyl exclusion zone.

Due to ongoing military activities in Ukraine, which made it difficult to conduct public procurement in/for Ukraine and to speed up the equipment delivery to SSE "Ecocentre", the Ukrainian company PE "Brom" was chosen a sole supplier of equipment for this project. Nordisk Sikkerhet has cooperated with PE "Brom" in Ukraine since 2015, when PE "Brom" was chosen by Nordisk Sikkerhet as an equipment supplier for several public tender processes. PE "Brom" has proved itself as a reliable and trustworthy supplier trough this and other projects.
