NS SAVANNAH FUEL MANAGEMENT REPORT
Although the NS Savannah has used less than 30% of the expected lifetime of her first core at the end of the European demonstration voyages (March 1965), a much higher rate of core burnup is resulting from the vessel's being involved in normal commercial service. Therefore, some long range planning and activity must be initiated toward providing for additional reactor operation after the initial core lifetime is expended. The report considers the various alternatives available to supply the necessary fuel for such operation.
