The Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management M&O contractor is determining the number of spent fuel transportation cask systems required to transport fuel from reactors to the MRS. This paper examines a number of assumptions that influence the number of Phase 1 casks required and quantifies the impact these assumptions have on the required cask fleet composition and size. It should be noted that this is the first study directed specifically toward evaluation of the Phase 1 transportation cask requirements. Previous studies have primarily focussed on analysis of cask fleet size for Initiative 1 casks (GA and BR100 truck and rail casks respectively).
