Spent Nuclear Fuel Storage

One of the key activities of ŠKODA JS a.s. is the manufacture of equipment for spent nuclear fuel management.

Once it has been removed from the reactor, spent fuel must first be safely stored in a spent fuel storage pool and then later on in a so-called interim storage facility. The first group of technology includes compact storage racks, which serve for short-term “wet” storage of spent nuclear fuel for a period of 5-8 years. The second group includes transport and storage casks, which serve for medium-term “dry” storage of spent fuel for a period of several dozens of years.  

ŠKODA JS a.s. has more than twenty years of experience in the design, manufacture and assembly of such equipment, which has been supplied to a variety of customers not only in Europe but also in the USA and Southeast Asia.
