SKB, has chosen to carry out its shipments of radioactive waste by sea. It uses a purpose-built vessel to transport low- and intermediate-level operational waste from all of Sweden’s nuclear power plants to SFR, the final repository for short-lived radioactive waste at Forsmark. The ship also transports spent nuclear fuel to Clab, the company’s interim storage facility in Oskarshamn.
The Sigrid has double hulls, four engines and other duplicated systems to enhance safety and availability. She needs to be able both to manoeuvre in shallow water and to cope with high seas and harsh winter conditions. She will have low fuel consumption and an environment-friendly design. With a length of almost 100 meters and a width of 19 meters, Sigrid is somewhat larger than her predecessor Sigyn and can carry 12 nuclear fuel and waste containers.
M/S Sigrid arrived this morning at Damen shipyard, Schiedam from Galati, Romania to finish work on board of the vessel.
