Project description:

For the transportation of nuclear waste to COVRA, NRG requires a means of transportation to allow it to safely transport this waste.


Delmeco has designed and provided 48 stainless steel vessels and 48 thermogalvanised pallets for NRG, for a safe and reliable transportation of solid nuclear waste. Additionally, Delmeco designed and provided 24 thermogalvanised transport pallets for a safe and reliable transportation of the stainless steel vessels for COVRA.


The assignment consisted of:

  •  Engineering the stainless steel vessels, pallets and transport pallets (within Delmeco Raadgevend Ingenieursbureau B.V.);
  •  Manufacturing 48 stainless steel vessels with lids and rain caps made from stainless steel 316 including a lead filling;
  •  Manufacture of 48 support pallets (galvanised steel) for the transportation of 48 stainless steel vessels;
  •  Manufacture of 24 transport pallets (galvanised steel) for the transportation of 48 stainless steel vessels with support pallets;
  •  Performing a FAT (Factory Acceptance Test).

Within this project Delmeco is responsible for the delivery of 48 stainless steel vessels, 48 support pallets and 24 transport pallets from design to delivery.
