Video: Transferring and Storing Used Nuclear Fuel


This video demonstrates the process for safely transferring used nuclear fuel from a reactor into a dry shielded canister, transporting the canister to an independent spent fuel storage installation (ISFSI), and loading the canister into a fortress-like horizontal storage module.

These above-ground NUHOMS® storage modules ensure the highest level of safety and radiation shielding while enabling inspection and ease of future offsite canister transport. The concrete modules are designed to withstand earthquakes, floods and tornadoes, and have even been airplane crash tested.
