Title: Dominion's Spent Fuel Storage Techniques and The EPRI High Burnup Dry Storage Cask Research and Development Project

This presentation will give an overview of different storage techniques for spent nuclear fuel and the strategies behind them.  An overview of the loading process for dry storage canisters will be given.  The presentation will focus on the EPRI High Burnup Dry Storage Cask Research Project (HDRP). The HDRP is a combined project between: EPRI, AREVA (Fuels & Services), Transnuclear, Dominion Virginia Power, and Westinghouse Fuels.  The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the ability to safely store and transport high burnup spent nuclear fuel.
