FAST REACTOR SPENT FUELS TRANSPORTATION PROBLEMS

In this paper transportation problems of spent fuels from fast reactors BN-350, BN-600 and BN-1500 to reprocessing plant are discussed. It was calculated that 6-10 fuel assemblies can be inserted in one transport cask, the weight of which is 50-60t. Noble gas or water can be used for the BN-350 fuel cask; sodium, lead and special alloys for the BN-1500. Transportation problems of angermetized fuel are also considered in this paper.
