America’s Nuclear Solution

Orano USA and Waste Control Specialists are forming a joint venture, named Interim Storage Partners, to license a consolidated interim storage facility (CISF) for used nuclear fuel at the existing WCS disposal site in Andrews County, Texas. The joint venture will request that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission resume its review of the suspended CISF license application originally submitted by WCS in April 2016 and docketed by the NRC for review in January 2017 (Docket No. 72-1050).

The ISP joint venture combines the strengths of Orano’s decades of expertise in used nuclear fuel packaging, storage and transportation with WCS’ experience operating a unique facility serving both the commercial nuclear industry and the U.S. Department of Energy.
