Initial Site-Specific De-Inventory Report for Maine Yankee

The purpose of this report is to assist the United States (U.S.) Department of Energy (DOE) in
laying the groundwork for implementing an integrated waste management system. This includes
preparing for future large-scale transport of Spent Nuclear Fuel (SNF), High-Level Radioactive
Waste (HLW), and Greater Than Class C (GTCC) Low Level Radioactive Waste (LLW). This
report addresses the tasks, equipment, and interfaces necessary for the complete de-inventory of
the Maine Yankee (MY) independent spent fuel storage installation (ISFSI) site located in the

Analysis of Dust Samples Collected from an In-Service Interim Storage System at the Maine Yankee Nuclear Site

In July, 2016, the Electric Power Research Institute and industry partners performed a field test at the Maine Yankee Nuclear Site, located near Wiscasset, Maine. The primary goal of the field test was to evaluate the use of robots in surveying the surface of an in-service interim storage canister within an overpack; however, as part of the demonstration, dust and soluble salt samples were collected from horizontal surfaces within the interim storage system.

Preliminary Evaluation of Removing Used Nuclear Fuel from Shutdown Sites (September 2016 Version)

In January 2013, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) issued the Strategy for the Management
and Disposal of Used Nuclear Fuel and High-Level Radioactive Waste (DOE 2013). Among the
elements contained in this strategy are siting, designing, licensing, constructing and operating a
pilot interim storage facility with an initial focus on accepting used nuclear fuel from shutdown
reactor sites. This focus is consistent with the recommendations of the Blue Ribbon Commission
on America’s Nuclear Future, which identified removal of stranded used nuclear fuel at
