Used Nuclear Fuel and Nuclear Waste Packages

  • 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.
