REACTOR REFUELING REVIEW AND ADAPTABILITY FOR SHIPBOARD

A preliminary review and evaluation was made of seven reactor types, five of which are land-based facilites, for refueling and the adaptability of their respective methods to shipboard installation. It is concluded that the inclusion of the land-based refueling and waste disposal system in a merchant ship would be restrictive. Therefore, only a limited number of the tasks and equipment should be included on board the vessel, with the remainder being performed at a land-based facility.
