The next advanced evolution of our proven, high-performance dry shielded canister offers:
- Higher capacity
- Higher heat load
- Superior shielding
- Low plant risk
- Low life cycle costs
The EOS 37PTH and EOS 89BTH baskets are constructed using alloy steel, aluminum, and Metal Matrix Composite (MMC) plates configured into an egg crate design, allowing for a more cost-efficient fabrication. The compartment assemblies are connected to perimeter
aluminum transition rail assemblies. Geometric spacing, fixed neutron absorbers and soluble burn are used to maintain criticality control for enrichments up to 5.0% U235.
The EOS 37PTH and EOS 89BTH DSCs are optimized for plants with minimum crane capacity of 125 tons and have a 108 ton option available. The EOS canisters will be transferred in the new NUHOMS® EOS TC series transfer cask to gain the benefit of being fully
shielded. EOS 37PTH and EOS 89BTH DSCs are transferred and stored in a horizontal configuration using the NUHOMS® EOS HSM concrete modules.
The EOS HSM is a new and improved HSM-H, with redesigned vents for a higher capacity heat load while maintaining the same overall footprint. The EOS 37PTH and 89BTHDSC assemblies incorporate the proven NUHOMS® welded closure design that has been used in
numerous loaded canisters in the United States.
