Nuclear Fuel Packer

Description:

This machine remotely inserts stabilizers between the rods of a nuclear fuel bundle. The fuel bundles can then be safely moved to a shipping container.

Application:

This was a first-of-a-kind project. A combination of state and local officials, multiple power utilities and power plant service providers worked as a team in the transportation of nuclear fuel from one power plant to one located in a different state.

Design Highlights:

Specially designed stabilizers were inserted between fuel rods 40 feet under water.

Benefit:

Public and environmental safety dramatically increased during the nuclear fuel movement.
