NAC Actively Engaged with Fuel Removal from Nuclear Power Plant Sites - Consolidated Interim Storage Facility (CISF) initiative - Waste Control Specialist (WCS)
While government entities are still working on providing a final storage repository for used nuclear fuel, there is already an interest in removing fuel from sites, especially from permanently shut down ones.
NAC has partnered with AREVA and Waste Control Specialists (WCS) in the development of a License Application for a Consolidated Interim Storage Facility (CISF) for Used Nuclear Fuel at their facility in Andrews County, TX. The License will allow the storage of Used Nuclear Fuel from select reactors at shut down sites, and from Texas. The goal is to begin receiving fuel from shut down reactors in the 2020 - 2022 timeframe.
NAC is well positioned to not only support the storage initiative, but also to support the shipments of the used fuel from nuclear plant sites with its dual purpose solution design, transportation cask availability, and transportation experience.
