KRASNOYARSK, November 28 (Itar-Tass) —— The reconstructed storage of the chemical mining plant in the Krasnoyarsk Territory is ready to take 8,600 tonnes of spent nuclear fuel. The spent nuclear fuel dumping site can meet the needs of the Russian nuclear industry in the safe spent nuclear fuel keeping from the nuclear reactors through 2025.
The reconstruction of the spent nuclear fuel storage was launched in 2007, the plant’s press service told Itar-Tass on Monday. The reconstruction was seeking for a stronger seismic stability of the building. The building framework was reinforced, the cooling system capacity increased, the roof was reconstructed and four cranes were replaced.
The Russian technology watchdog issued a license for the operation of the spent nuclear fuel storage with the capacity of 7,200 tonnes of uranium dioxide in the summer of 2010 that continued the safe spent nuclear fuel handling from Russian nuclear reactors WWER-1000 after the permitted capacity of 6,000 tonnes was reached.
“The commissioning of the reconstructed spent nuclear fuel storage at the chemical mining plant contributed greatly to the creation of a technological complex of the Russian closed nuclear fuel cycle at the chemical mining plant. The safe storage of spent nuclear fuel is not only a technological part of fuel regeneration process, but also a tangible economic factor for the operation of the plant,” the press service said.
The chemical mining plant, which is incorporated in Rosatom, includes three plants for nuclear material handling.
