STURGIS Nuclear Decommissioning Completed by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Team
The Reactor Pressure Vessel from the STURGIS, the Army’s retired floating nuclear power plant recently decommissioned, is carefully loaded onto a transport vehicle inside its specially designed shielded shipping container. The RPV and its specially-designed shielded shipping container combined to weigh a total of approximately 80 tons. The RPV’s safe delivery to the designated disposal facility was completed in early June 2017.
