TN International Transport Solution: Supporting Non-proliferation Initiative

TN International (AREVA), 1 rue des Hérons, 78142 Montigny Le Bretonneux, France


For more than forty years, TN International supports the research reactors community in safely performing national or international transport of radioactive materials (fresh and spent fuel).

TN International is bringing its experience to the various actors of the Global Threats Reduction Initiative Program (GTRI) in particular the Foreign Research Reactor Program (FRR) and the Russian Research Fuel Return Program (RRRFR).

TN International owns and operates a fleet of three TNTMTR casks. Each cask can transport up to 68 MTR fuel elements. Specific baskets have been developed for transport to the US as well as for Mayak acceptance for loading.

During the last decades, TN International has contributed to non-proliferation initiatives by loading and transporting casks in more than 10 countries. With the support of the AREVA network, TN International provides transportation services, including cask and technical assistance on site, to different Research Reactors under US Department of Energy and IAEA frameworks.

This presentation will summarize our experience and futures activities for the coming years in the framework of non-proliferation initiatives.
