THE ECONOMICS AND INFLUENCES OF NUCLEAR REFUELING IN MARITIME APPLICATIONS

The report provides a detailed projection of the costs and ship outage times which will be borne by nuclear ship operators for refueling-that is replacing the spent nuclear fuel in proposed maritime reactors with fresh fuel. Refueling costs include the prorated cost of special facilities, labor, other miscellaneous direct costs, and indirect charges associated with ship outage time. It is shown that the influence of refueling upon nuclear ship economics is highly dependent upon power level, reactor design, and the indirect charges associated with ship's outage.
