Warehouse for Spent Nuclear Fuel in Temelin, Czech Republic
Engineering Office: Statika s.r.o.
Software: Nexis, Scia Engineer
The presented project is a warehouse for the storage of spent nuclear fuel (SSNF) in the nuclear power plant of Temelín. A lot of Government Building Resolutions had to be taken into account. The building
is a solution at the end of the fuel cycle, before placing the fuel to a deep repository. The warehouse is divided into two parts - the receiving and the stock unit. The concept of the structure is specially designed according to the international standards for nuclear power installations, which take precedence over the national standards ČSN EN. The standards are very complex and comprise many rules and regulations.
