ABOUT DAHER NUCLEAR TECH­NO­LOGIES GmbH

NUCLEAR FUEL LOGISTICS, RAIL

 

DAHER NUCLEAR TECH­NO­LOGIES GmbH Nuclear Fuel Rail Logistics Business Unit (BES) is a leading pro­vider of trans­por­tation and logistics ser­vices in the nuclear fuel logistics business.

Our focus is on large-scale pro­jects, such as managing secure trans­por­tation of spent fuel assem­blies from power and research reactors, and returning high and medium-level waste from repro­cessing plants to the German interim storage loca­tions (ZL) using a tri­modal trans­por­tation system.

In addition, the BES includes the management of rail trans­por­tation of various uranium pro­ducts from the uranium enrichment field (U3O8, UF6).

Tog­ether with our Group member, heavy load haulier DAHER PRO­JECTS GmbH, the Nuclear Fuel Rail Logistics Business Unit has done pioneering work with the con­cepts deve­loped for secure transport move­ments to the former repro­cessing plant and to the German interim storage loca­tions (e.g. HAW transport move­ments to Gor­leben and moving fuel ele­ments from Obrigheim nuclear power station to interim storage at Neckar­westheim). We are still very proud of this today.
