Spent Fuel Status

Connecticut Yankee, Maine Yankee, and Yankee Rowe are the 3 Yankee Companies. These 3 independent, single-asset companies operated nuclear power plants that were permanently shut down in the 1990's for economic reasons. All three nuclear power plants were fully decommissioned and the sites environmentally restored in accordance with federal and state regulations by 2007. Their primary function now is to safely and securely store spent nuclear fuel (SNF) and Greater than Class C waste (GTCC waste) produced during plant operations until the federal government fulfills its obligation to remove this material from the three sites. The SNF and GTCC waste is stored and secured in accordance with Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) licensing requirements at each site's Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI). Each ISFSI is staffed seven days a week, 24 hours a day in accordance with NRC approved security requirements. More information about each site, as well as contact information for ISFSI managers, is available by clicking on the individual company web sites.
