Spent nuclear fuel dry storage facility
SSE Chornobyl NPP
Terms of works
August 2014 - January 2020
Project provides construction of spent nuclear fuel dry storage facility (ISF-2) on the site of SSE Chornobyl NPP. Implementation of the project shall enable preparation, handling and reliable storage of fuel assemblies (FA) with spent nuclear fuel from reactors RBMK-1000 of Chornobyl NPP. All processes of FA treatment including reception, unloading, cutting, drying, packing, sealing and transfer for long-term storage (up to 100 years), will be fully automated.
Construction of ISF-2 will significantly reduce costs for maintenance of spent nuclear fuel concentrated at Chornobyl NPP after its decommissioning and will ease burden on budget of the country.
