The nuclear power plants (NPP) housing RBMK-1000 reactors have accumulated large stocks of spent nuclear fuel (SNF). The main way of the spent fuel management there is dry storage of fuel rod bundles in TUK-109 casks subsequently transferred to the centralized storage facility at Mining and Chemical Combine. This technology is developed for the conforming spent fuel assemblies (acceptable for long-term storage). The ways of management of non-conforming SFAs are under development now.
