Arkansas Nuclear One


Russellville, Arkansas
Client: RIZZO Associates (Formerly known as Paul C. Rizzo Associates, Inc.)
Owner: Entergy

The Arkansas Nuclear One power plant owned by Entergy Energy constructed a new spent fuel storage facility at their site in Russellville Arkansas. The two spent fuel pads are designed to house spent fuel casks safely under a variety of conditions, including seismic events and floods. The pads will enable the power plant to store spent fuel until 2021.

Fall Line provided materials testing services for the aggregate sub-grade and the concrete used to construct the pads.  The testing was performed on-site at field laboratories set up and equipped by Fall Line under an NQA-1 compliant Quality system.
