CONCEPTUAL DESIGN REPORT FOR HETP RADIOACTIVE FEED MATERIAL SHIPPING EQUIPMENT

The continuing development of the HTGR fuel reprocessing flowsheet requires demonstration of selected processes in a highly radioactive environment. The Hot Engineering Test Project (HETP) has been designated for this purpose. Irradiated Fort St. Vrain fuel has been selected as the primary ''hot'' feed material for this program. This requirement establishes the need for licensed shipping equipment to transport the feed material between the storage facility in Idaho to the Hot Engineering Test Facility (HETF) sited at ORNL. This report documents the conceptual design studies which have been performed to define the shipping equipment and identify requirements for equipment and interfaces at the support facilities.
