2014:50 Technical Note, A Study of Availability of Fuel Data for Sweden’s Spent Nuclear Fuel

The study covers all types spent fuel planned to be placed in the final repository. It was carried out by selecting a sample of spent fuel and investigating the information available at the Nuclear Power Plants (NPP’s) in Sweden, the Central interim storage facility (Clab) and Studsvik.

The results indicate that the required data is available and can be obtained for fuel unloaded after 1980. For fuel unloaded before 1980 most data can be retrieved but all data are not stored digitally and require some effort to retrieve. Furthermore, the study shows that data for basic safeguard requirements can be retrieved from either NPPs or Clab. However additional data may currently only be retrieved from the NPPs
