    GNS HAS DEVELOPED A QUIVER system to remove damaged fuel rods from PWRs and BWRs (see NEI January 2018 p28) and establish a disposal concept meeting the requirements of German utilities.
    The first hot campaign took place in October 2018 at Unterweser (a 1410MW PWR) in Lower Saxony. The campaign comprised handling and dispatch of three Quivers, to complete removal of the remaining spent fuel from the spent fuel pool.
