Nuclear Fuel Department, Nuclear Division, Baden, Switzerland
In the current project, the student will work in the Back End group of Axpo with emphasis on the transportation casks of spent fuel from the Beznau nuclear power plant (KKB). During this project, the student will be involved in measuring data indicating the acceleration and possible vibration that potentially stresses the cask trunnions during the transportation. Focus will be given on the transportation with the so-called “Goldhofer” transport system and a truck trailer. The expected outcome is a profile for the street from the intermediate storage facility ZWILAG in Würenlingen to KKB and vice versa.
