We are pleased to announce that the first HI-TRAN 300, a vertical heavy load hauler designed by Holtec’s Nuclear Power Division (NPD) to serve as the single-failure-proof workhorse for hauling loaded Holtec dry spent fuel storage system components and for executing inter-cask canister transfer, has been successfully manufactured and factory tested by the Company’s Advanced Manufacturing Division in Camden, New Jersey.
