Nuclear Power Plant Infrastructure Evaluations for Removal of Spent Nuclear Fuel (2024)

This report fulfills the M3 milestone M3SF-23PN0203020614, “Updated NPP Site Evaluation Report (2).” This report is an update of the 2021 report Nuclear Power Plant Infrastructure Evaluations for Removal of Spent Nuclear Fuel and includes expansion of the site evaluations to include operating nuclear power plant (NPP) sites and to incorporate updated site inventory data. Figures that include the number of spent nuclear fuel (SNF) assemblies and metric tons heavy metal (MTHM) in a single figure have also been added to the report.

Initial Site-Specific De-Inventory Reports

 

The US Department of Energy (DOE) is exploring options for developing a large-scale transportation system for the safe transport of spent nuclear fuel (SNF) and high-level radioactive waste to future storage or disposal facilities. This complex, large-scale transportation system will involve coordinated, integrated activities. Interfaces with various transportation and non-transportation activities must be defined, and systems must be developed to ensure successful integration when the system becomes operational.

SAS2H Analysis of Radiochemical Assay Samples from Yankee Rowe PWR Reactor

The purpose of this design analysis is to determine the accuracy of the SAS2H module of SCALE 4.3 in predicting isotopic concentrations of spent fuel assemblies. The objective is to develop a methodology for modeling assemblies similar to those evaluated within this analysis and to establish the consistency of SAS2H predictions. The results of this analysis may then be applied to future depletion calculations using SAS2H in which no measurements are available.

Environmental Risk Characterization Work Plan Yankee Nuclear Power Station Rowe, Massachusetts

This document presents a work plan for performing an environmental risk assessment to support the environmental site closure underway at the Yankee Nuclear Power Station (YNPS). A work plan for the human health risk assessment was submitted as a separate document (Gradient, 2006). The YNPS is located in the town of Rowe, situated in northwestern Massachusetts along the Deerfield River adjacent to Sherman Dam (Figure 1-1).
