Orano TN is an expert manufacturer of NRC-licensed packages (canisters, casks, cylinders) for managing radioactive materials. Canisters and cylinders are used to contain nuclear material. Casks are used to transport nuclear material, either material placed directly inside the cask or material within a canister placed inside the cask.
Orano TN’s portfolio includes packages for managing and transporting
used nuclear fuel and nuclear waste, and for managing and transporting
EOS canister - Orano's NUHOMS® EOS 37PTH and 89BTH Dry Shielded Canisters (DSC) are a high-capacity, high-burnup, and high-heat load system for PWR and BWR dry used fuel storage needs. The 37PTH DSC is designed to store and transport 37 PWR fuel assemblies with or without channels. The 89BTH DSC is designed to store 89 BWR fuel assemblies. The EOS 37PTH and EOS 89BTH baskets securely hold the assemblies within the canister and are constructed using alloy steel, aluminum, and Metal Matrix Composite (MMC)
plates configured into an egg crate design. Geometric spacing, fixed neutron absorbers and soluble burn maintain criticality control for fuel enrichments up to 5.0% U235.
MP197HB cask - NUHOMS® MP197HB transportation cask is a universal cask capable of transporting nine different types of used fuel canisters. All transportable canister types designed by Orano TN can be transported in
the MP197HB. The
MP197HB transport cask includes a containment
boundary, structural shell, gamma shielding material, and solid neutron shield. The cask is approved for transport by rail, truck, or marine transport.
