COVRA (Centrale Organisatie Voor Radioactief Afval) is the Dutch nuclear waste processing and storage company in Vlissingen,[1] which stores the waste produced in the Borssele nuclear power plant after it is reprocessed by Areva NC[2] in La Hague, Manche, Basse-Normandie, France. Until the Dutch government decides what to do with the waste, it will stay at COVRA. COVRA currently has a license to operate for one hundred years.

The director of COVRA is Jan Boelen.
