Handling system for the storage of radiaoactive waste packages

Development of a demonstration prototype for the piling and transfer of packages of ILW-LL waste into deep geological storage for ANDRA

Handling system for the storage of radiaoactive waste packages

Background

A study concerning the creation of a deep geological waste disposal facility dedicated to the storage of long-lived intermediate and high level radioactive waste is currently being led. As part of the process to prepare the licensing file to obtain approval for the creation of this « CIGEO », planned for 2015, Onet Technologies was assigned the task of developing a demonstration prototype capable of superimposing and conveying waste packages into underground storage cells.

Service provided

Design, manufacturing and qualification of a demonstration prototype for the piling and subsequent transfer of packages of long-lived intermediate radioactive waste to geological disposal cells.

The services include:

  • Equipment design
  • Equipment manufacturing
  • Assembly of the equipment in the workshops
  • Factory trials
  • Technological qualification trials
  • Training of ANDRA staff to operate the equipment
  • Equipment maintenance
