Turnkey Project for Deployment of Holtec’s HI-STORM Systems at Mexico’s Laguna Verde Nuclear Power Station Nears Completion

We are pleased to report that Holtec’s turnkey project for installation and commissioning of an Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI), at Mexico’s national utility, Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE), Laguna Verde Nuclear Power Plant, is moving rapidly toward completion. Commencing with the contract signing in December of 2014, the Holtec and CFE project teams have completed all design and engineering, fabrication of major equipment and construction of the storage pad, as well as the Holtec’s patented subterranean Canister Transfer Facility (CTF), in just sixteen (16) months. The project is in the final stages of implementing the security systems to guard the ISFSI facility.
