SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

Under contract with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory prepared a draft NUREG/CR report, “Spent Fuel Transportation Package Response to the Baltimore Tunnel Fire (BTF) Scenario.” This NUREG/CR documents the thermal analyses of three different spent fuel transportation packages exposed to the BTF scenario: TransNuclear TN-68, Holtec HI-STAR 100 and the NAC LWT. Consequence analyses prepared by the Spent Fuel Project Office staff are also included.

The NRC is soliciting public comments on this draft NUREG/CR which will be considered in the final version or subsequent revisions.

II. Summary

The purpose of this notice is to provide the public an opportunity to review and comment on the Draft NUREG/CR thermal analyses, the consequence analyses and the conclusions.
