High-Volume: Casks - Basis

  • Basis
    • Storage casks with high-density shielding can be directly loaded in reactor pools
      • Eliminates a transfer cask
      • Reduces radiation dose
    • Transportation casks with high-density shielding have a higher payload than those using steel
    • Advanced fabrication techniques may make casks with high-density shielding less costly
