    NUCLEAR FUEL PRO The inventory of spent nuclear fuel at the Hanford Site covers a wide variety of fuel types (production reactor to space reactor) in many facilities (reactor fuel basins to hot cells) at. Iocations all over the Site. The 2, metric tons of spent nuclear fuel at Hanford accounts for over 80% of the total U.S. DOE inventory. Richland, Washington, U. S. A. and F. W. Moore DE&S Hanford, kc. Richland, Washington ABSTRACT The floors of the K Basins at the Hanford Site are refished to make decontamination easier if spills occur as the spent nuclear fuel (SNF) is being unloaded from the basins .

    Twenty one hundred metric tons of spent nuclear fuel (SNF) are currently stored in the Hanford Site K Basins near the Columbia River. The deteriorating conditions of the fuel and the basins provide engineering and management challenges to assure safe current and future storage. DE and S Hanford, Inc., part of the Fluor Daniel Hanford, Inc. lead team on the Project Hanford Management Contract. Spent nuclear fuel from the N-Reactora at the Department of Energy’s Hanford Site in southeastern Washington State has been stored under water in the Area K-Basins for approximately 30 years. Approximately metric tons of spent fuel are stored in the two basins: K-West Basin and K-East Basin.

Furthermore, the current inventory of ab MTHM of commercial.

7 Management of Spent Nuclear Fuel from the K Basins at the Hanford Site, Richland, Washington 8 (DOE/EISF). The Management of spent nuclear fuel from the K Basins at the Hanford Site Basins FEIS analyzed alternatives for managing the SNF located in the K-East 9 (KE) and K-West (KW) SNF storage basins, located on the Hanford Site along the Columbia River in 10 Washington State.

K Basins, consisting of two water-filled storage basins (KW and KE) for spent nuclear fuel (SNF), are part of the K Area of the Hanford Site, along the shoreline of the Columbia River, situated approximately 40 km (25 miles) northwest of the City of Richland, Washington.

The K-Basins project represented a unique challenge for DOE as it was the first highly radioactive waste treatment and cleanup of its kind.
