Moving part of an old nuke plant to a disposal site. Simply massive.

Life sure is tough when you don't learn from the mistakes of others.

What I'm most impressed by is the fact that those trailer axles turn to help navigate corners in the road had you not mentioned that this is part of a nuclear plant I'd of guessed it to be a giant pig castrator ha ha sorry I had to before someone else did.

The entire trip was 450 miles, not sure how far was on rail.

Took 7 weeks.

I think 460 includes all 45 trailer axles and the 8 trucks powering the rig.

That's the reactor vessel from Unit 1 of the San Onofre nuclear power plant located on Camp Pendelton near San Clemente Ca. It was transported from the plant site to the Energy Solutions disposal site in Clive Utah. The 770 ton load was transported via rail to southern Nevada then by roadway into Utah.

Peanuts compared to what they will be moving out of there in the future. I never worked Unit one there. By the time I started doing nukes, it was long closed down and in the process of being dismantled. That thing they are moving is the core. It will probably be pretty radioactive for the next couple hundred years. It's not fuel so Its not as bad. Anyway, that is a pretty small core. The other two reactors I worked at (Unit's 2 &3) are much larger. It will probably be decades before they are ready to be moved though. I'm sure they are probably still in the process of dry casking the spent fuel at those two plants. I don't know how they will move the other two cores but I would doubt it could be done with any truck.


I BELIEVE IN MY GOD, MY COUNTRY AND IN MYSELF.

I saw a large truck like that moving something out of the shipyard in Vallejo CA in the early 2000's. It wasn't that big but it had a lotta axles and wheels. The guy must have misjudges a turn and tried to back up a bit. When I saw him he had gone over a curve and blown about twelve tires out and mangled several rims. Felt sorry for the guy.
