Reactor vessel head
Low-level waste includes exceptionally large objects such as reactor vessel heads that EDF periodically replaces. The vessel head is placed in a large package, which is placed in a shipping cask for transportation to the CSA disposal facility for low- and intermediate-level waste. On arrival, the package is removed from the shipping cask, placed in a disposal cell and embedded in concrete, including inside.
