Title: Transfer Cask Assembly Onsite Transfer of K-Basin Fuel at Hanford

Packaging Technology, Inc. was awarded a contract for the design and fabrication of a unique 18.5-ton transportation system to be used on-site at Hanford, WA. Unique aspects include rectangular cask geometry, solid 7 inch-thick stainless steel construction, hinged lid with remotely operable quick release locking mechanism. The lid maintains shielding and material confinement integrity after hypothetical accident conditions, and is equipped with a hydrogen venting system. This paper presents how the project requirements were translated into a successful design, and includes a brief discussion of a confirmation test program.
