Dr. Stanley Turner I am overcome with grief as I announce to you the passing of our dear friend and colleague of over three decades, Dr. Stanley Turner. Dr. Turner, 84, breathed his last on August 8,…
The Chernobyl dry storage project, begun in the early fall of 2007 has chalked up some impressive milestones in its first year of existence.
The National Nuclear Energy Generating Company of Ukraine “Energoatom” and the New Jersey-based company “Holtec International” signed an amendment to their 2005 contract for the certification, manufacturing, and testing of the Holtec International Dual Purpose Canister Spent Fuel Management System (HI-STORM 190) in Ukraine.
We are pleased to announce that Holtec has won a competition conducted by the State Specialized Enterprise “Chernobyl NPP” (SSE ChNPP) to develop a storage system design to place the “failed” spent fuel (that is not covered by the Donor/Ukraine agreement) in dry storage ISF-2.
In a ceremony on September 17, 2007 in Kiev, Ukraine, presided by President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko, General Director of the Chernobyl Specialized State Enterprise, Igor Gramotkin and Holtec’s President and CEO, Dr. Kris Singh, signed the Contract documents that bind Holtec and the Ukrainian government to complete the interment of Chernobyl’s used nuclear fuel in dry storage systems in full conformance with Ukraine’s national safety standards.
Holtec’s stakeholders will remember 2005 as the year of several significant corporate milestones.
Holtec International is pleased to announce the signing of a contract with Ukraine’s government owned nuclear utility, “ENERGOATOM”, to establish a state-of-the-art central storage facility for the used nuclear fuel produced by the country’s VVER reactors.
The Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant (ChNPP) is sponsoring a study funded by the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) to utilize Holtec’s Forced Helium Dehydration (FHD) technology to dry the RBMK spent fuel from the three idled (undamaged) Chernobyl reactors.
We are pleased to announce that Energoatom, Ukraine’s National Atomic Energy Generating Company, has selected Holtec International to build the country’s Central Spent Fuel Storage Facility for long-term dry storage of the commercial spent fuel produced by its fleet of VVER reactors.
