NAC Transportable Dry Spent Fuel Storage Projects

 
NAC is proud of its record of successful transportable spent fuel storage technology development, demonstrated by the historical development of four multipurpose systems for use by the global nuclear community. Over the last decade in the U. S., more than 1,400 multipurpose canister systems (MCS) have been procured by utilities, and more than 1,200 have been loaded with spent fuel and placed into Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installations (ISFSI) at reactor sites. To date, NAC multipurpose systems constitute a significant percentage of all the loaded concrete MCS in the U. S.

NAC has performed a number of successful projects involving the supply and loading of its MPC, STC, and UMS dry storage/transport technologies for utility customers (see the descriptions of the NAC-MPC and UMS technology descriptions elsewhere on this site). The plants in the table below have ordered, loaded, and placed into storage the systems identified.
