Status of Spent Fuel Storage at Savannah River Site (OCTOBER 2003)

Trent Andes, Donald W. Bickley, Alan S. Busby

Westinghouse Savannah River Site

Aiken, South Carolina USA 29808


The Savannah River Site continues to be the U.S. Department of Energy’s primary receipt and storage location for aluminum based research reactor fuel.  A number of initiatives have been implemented which enhance the site’s storage capabilities while reducing the long term operating cost.  The L-Basin facility improvements include projects that allow handling of the TN7/2 and LWT casks, improved basin chemistry, modernized the cask handling cranes, and increased basin capacity. In an effort to provide the most cost-effective long-term storage of material, the project to de-inventory the RBOF storage basin and consolidate spent nuclear fuel at L-Basin is nearly complete.
