Packaging Technology, Inc. is designing the Mixed Oxide (MOX) Fresh Fuel Package (MFFP) for Duke Cogema Stone & Webster (DCS). The package is unique because of weight and size constraints, having a relatively large payload to package weight ratio. The package has a containment shell, that utilizes high strength stainless steel to optimize the payload relative to the total weight available, protected at the ends by impact limiters. Because of the unique design, full scale prototype impact testing is scheduled for mid-2003. Engineering testing on key design elements, and certification test planning have been completed. Long lead material has been procured for fabrication of the prototype.
