Surface storage facility concept
This diagram of a surface storage facility for high-level waste makes use of the characteristics of existing storage facilities at La Hague. Storage facilities of this kind could reap the benefits of experience with facilities currently in service. A storage facility could be designed to be entirely on the surface or in half-buried concrete bunkers. There are options involving a sequence of different cooling methods, starting with water and moving on to natural convection.
