  • Cask Licensing
  • European Union Requirements
  • Procurement of SKODA casks
background
Background
  • 1999 – US, Russian Federation (RF) and IAEA launch of RRRFR
  • Objective – assist countries to return HEU fuel to the RF
  • Implemented at the IAEA through Technical Cooperation (TC) projects
  • Facilitated the return of 433 Kg of fresh HEU from nine states
  • Completed first shipment of spent HEU fuel (63 Kg) from Uzbekistan in April 2006.

background2
Background
  • October 2006 - RRRFR Lessons Learned Workshop
    • Provide technical and administrative information on preparations for shipping irradiated Russian research reactor fuel; including the sharing experiences with Uzbek spent fuel shipments,
    • Finalize the outline and provide substantive documentation for preparation of an IAEA guideline document, and
    • Determine actions to be taken by the IAEA to facilitate future shipments
background3
Background
  • October 2006 - RRRFR Lessons Learned Workshop (cont’d)
    • Regulatory and research representatives from 15 countries
    • More than 20 lectures, spanning three days
    • Covering legal requirements, contracts, facility preparations, transit issues, and transportation
government to government agreement
Government to Government Agreement
  • Submitted to the RF Government by Rosatom together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the RF upon their agreement
  • State Ecological Expertise Review (Rostechnadzor)
  • Approved by the RF Government or the Head of Rosatom
government to government agreement1
Government to Government Agreement
  • Scope of the agreement including disposition of the HLW;
  • Competent bodies authorized to perform regulation, surveillance and solve disputes;
  • Competent bodies authorized to perform regulation and surveillance for nuclear and radiation safety;
  • Competent bodies authorized to perform physical protection of special goods;
  • Competent bodies authorized to perform the transportation;
  • Transport operations on the territories of the transit countries;

unified project
Unified Project
  • A Unified Project is required under RF law.
  • Overall assessment of the radiological, economical, social, and environmental impacts to the RF, particularly the areas surrounding the Mayak Plant, by the State Ecological Commission of Experts
    • Special Ecological Programs
    • Foreign Trade contract
    • Overall risk reduction documents
    • Public information documents
cask licensing
Cask Licensing
  • Licenses issued for TUK-19 and SKODA casks
  • Transportation licenses are shipment specific
  • Must also consider requirements of transit countries
european union requirements
European Union Requirements
  • Workshop on “International Legal Framework Applicable for Shipment of Russian-Origin Research Reactor Spent Fuel to the Russian Federation” Poiana Brasov, Romania 24-26 April 2007
  • EU represented by four officials from the European Commission and the EURATOM Supply Agency
  • Comprehensive presentations provided clear information regarding the EU legal and administrative obligations for EU Member States participating in the RRRFR program
skoda casks
SKODA Casks
  • Contract signed in December 2005 following an international tender
  • IAEA purchased 10 VPVR/M casks
  • Contract included extensive fabrication, inspection, and testing provisions; licensing and quality requirements
  • Casks Available to support ongoing RRRFR shipments
skoda casks1
SKODA Casks
  • Basic Parameters of the SKODA VPVR/M cask as listed in the approved Russian Federation License [3]:
  • Capacity, SFA (canisters), pieces 36
  • Unit mass, kg, not more than
  • Empty 10 700
  • Filled (without shock absorbers) 11 150
  • Filled (with shock absorbers) 12 390
  • Mass of all SFA in a cask (considering the mass of sealed canisters),

kg, not more than 450

  • Basic outer dimensions of unit (cask), mm, not more than:
    • Outer diameter of cask body 1 200
    • Cask height without shock absorbers 1 505
    • Cask height with shock absorbers 2 155
    • Outer cask diameter of cask body with shock absorbers 1 500
  • Thickness of cylindrical wall of cask body 300
  • Medium inside the cask helium
  • Maximal normal working pressure, Mpa 0.07
summary
Summary
  • Since early 2006, the IAEA, in cooperation with the EU, the RF, the USA, and a number of individual Member States, has provided overall programmatic and technical support to the RRRFR effort through the examination of “lessons learned” from the Uzbek spent fuel shipments.
    • Information disseminated to participating Member States through an IAEA Guideline
  • 10 high capacity, dual purpose casks procured to support RRRFR shipments.
