Recall, the construction of the center started in March 2012 and was completed in December 2013. The commissioning deadline was delayed for December 2015. But due to the mistakes of the general contractor, the project has not been implemented.

Last year, an independent expert committee identified errors. The main problem - the selection and storage system of liquid radioactive waste (LRW) does not correspond to the rules. The subcontractor "Medtech" JSC stated the problem.

"At the meetings of the working group experts repeatedly said that this system should be replaced. The Management of "Medtech" started to correct the mistakes. However, the organization does not fulfill warranty obligations", - Deputy Mayor of Demetrius Garikov said during the meeting.

According to the akimat, D. Akhmetov instructed to take under special control all these problems, check the installed equipment corresponds to the rules, technical and technological certification, to examine the contract between the two companies and to reach consensus on emerging problems.

"Everything that concerns the life and safety of the population requires special and careful approach. I have repeatedly met with the two sides, and each promised to fix defects as soon as possible", - said the head of the region.
