Abstract: The NUHOMS dry storage system for spent fuel is now in use at two Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installations (ISFSIs) and a third is under construction. This system can be used for economical storage at the MRS. Multi-assembly canisters may be shipped to the MRS directly from the ISFSI or the reactor spent fuel pool. Canisters also may be loaded with fuel assemblies at the MRS. The interfaces between the ISFSI, the DOE transportation system, and the MRS are described for the NUHOMS system. The design criteria for the NUHOMS systems and the applicability of the criteria to the MRS are also discussed.
