Packaging and Transportation Services for Used Nuclear Fuel

NAC can perform all services for the full transportation scope.

The company completed over 3,600 shipments from 70 nuclear facilities in over 30 countries on six continents.

NAC’s cask loading equipment can handle both wet and loading.

Cask and packaging 

The versatility of the NAC International Legal Weight Truck (NAC-LWT) has made it a popular transport cask for the shipment of research and test reactor spent fuel, commercial nuclear spent fuel, and other irradiated materials.

The NAC-LWT is certified according to the latest International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) requirements. More than 30 countries have validated its Certificate of Compliance (CoC). Over 60 CoC amendments have been obtained for specific nuclear materials.

The NAC-LWT cask loading equipment provides handling flexibility for a wide range of loading conditions, from wet loading in a pool, to dry loading at facilities with challenging infrastructure limitations.

In line with the latest regulations, NAC can perform all services necessary for the full transportation scope, including:

  • Assessing the route and obtaining the route approval
  • Preparing transportation and security plans
  • Notifying the state, NRC, the US Department of Transportation (DOT) and other involved parties
  • Booking carrier, coordinating escort, tracking the shipment, and other support services

Loading services
