Previous transports

Between 1996 and 2011, GNS has already carried out twelve return transports from La Hague in France to the Gorleben interim storage facility in Lower Saxony on behalf of the German nuclear power plant operators. The 108 casks transported in total each contained 28 canisters with vitrified high-level radioactive reprocessing waste. This was all the high-level radioactive waste generated during the reprocessing of German fuel elements at La Hague. The return of high-level radioactive waste from France has thus been completed.
