Diamond tools are well proven cutting, drilling and grinding technologies in many applications but need to be specifically optimized and adapted for the complex and varied structures of nuclear power plant in view of decontamination and decommissioning. The proper development and use of diamond tools in these extreme and complex conditions can only be achieved thanks to the combined talent of experienced nuclear plant contractors, engineers, technicians, operators of diamond tools, and the use of specialized equipment. This present paper is an overview of the possible applications of diamond tools in the different operations of Nuclear Decommissioning and Decontamination.
