A NEW GENERATION IN THE FAMILY OF PACKAGES FOR TRANSPORTATION

COGEMA LOGISTICS

ABSTRACT

A new generation of packages has been developed by COGEMA LOGISTICS, formerly TRANSNUCLEAIRE, to meet the various needs and requirements of the Research and Test Laboratories worldwide, and to offer long-term solutions, following the 1996 Regulations.

These packages are adapted to various options, and are able to propose long term solutions for international transports of all kinds and sizes of materials from and to all kinds of sites.

The TN MTR is a B (U) package which has been developped for the shipments of spent fuel of research and test  laboratories. Up to 68 assemblies can be shipped in one time. This package offers many possible internal configurations, by means of various baskets adapted to the fuels characteristics and the contents. 

The TN 106 is a new B(U) package used for transport of irradiated fuel rods and pins.

It is the only existing and licenced package which can be manufactured in several lengths : the package has been designed based upon a modular concept, adapted to the various sizes of spent fuel.

The TN UO2 is a package which can be used to ship many different contents of non irradiated materials, including reprocessed uranium. The packages can be loaded in a transport container in order to facilitate the logistics aspects.

The RD 26 is a type B(U) package for multipurpose shipments, such as alpha contaminated technological wastes in drums, UO2 powder, pellets, or part of fuel rods, liquid wastes. The package is now widely used, and can be adapted to various possible contents in various transport configuration.

All this new generation of packages is intended to be adapted to the main needs of the Test and Research Reactors, by offering at maximum a standard system which can be modulated for any specific purpose.
