accommodate further fuel assembly

types from other research reactors

(e.g. TRIGA, MTR) with the use of

individually adapted fuel baskets.

The casks, which are about 160 cm

high and weigh 16 t, essentially consist

of a body made of ductile cast iron, a

basket for accommodating the fuel

elements and a double lid system

with metallic sealings. These design

features ensure safe containment the

radioactive materials both during

transport and subsequent storage.

The comparatively small CASTOR®

MTR3 casks are made of the same

materials and have the same design

features and safety functions as

the CASTOR® casks from GNS for

fuel assemblies from commercial

power plants, which are up to four

times larger and have already

proven their reliability well over 1000

times.
