GENERALIZED SERVICING STUDY ON TRANSPORTATION OF THE REACTOR SERVICING SYSTEM'S MOVABLE COMPONENT
This report covers a survey of a large number of methods of meeting the problem of providing mobility for the reactor servicing equipment. These methods include barges railroads, trucks, ships and various combinations of containers and modes of transportation. From both a cost point of view and a feasibility point of view, a reactor servicing barge solves this logistics problem best. In addition it requires a minimum of fixed shore facilities and is best adapted to upkeep by the Maritime Administration facilities. Therefore, a reactor servicing barge, backed up by a shore facility and a fuel element transportation system, is recommended as best meeting the needs of the Maritime Administration for the servicing of the N.S. Savannah reactor plant.
