- The mission of the Sodium Storage Facility (SSF) is to receive molten sodium coolant from the Fast Flux Test Facility (FFTF), store the sodium in a solid state for an extended period, and then melt the sodium for transfer to a future Sodium Reaction Facility. SSF is required for sodium offload during FFTF transition to a safe, stable condition for long-term surveillance and maintenance pending final decommissioning. About 984,100 liters of sodium will be offloaded from FFTF to tank storage in SSF during this transition period. Unused carbon steel sodium tanks originally built for the Clinch River Breeder Reactor plant will be used. Once the storage tanks are in place, a concrete building will be constructed around and over them to provide shielding and weather protection. This document serves as a notice of construction pursuant to the requirements of Washington Administrative Code WAC 246-247-060 and as a request for approval to construct pursuant to 40 Code of Federal Regulations CFR 61.96 for SSF. Information is arranged to closely reflect the order of the requirements in WAC 246-247-110.
