Ameren unveils dry cask storage

Ameren Missouri has wrapped up construction on its new dry cask storage facility and will move spent fuel from the fuel pool for storage in the new system this week. The system, which has taken the company four years to complete, is to provide additional storage for spent fuel outside of the fuel pool. The storage facility is capable of storing 48 canisters of spent fuel assemblies, which are comprised of fuel rods containing uranium pellets (about the size of a multi-vitamin). Each assembly can contain 144 fuel rods — each canister will be able to hold 37 spent fuel assemblies. It only takes five of the pellets to provide electricity to a home for a year.
