Abstract:

TechData Sheets TDSs summarize information on a technology or process that have immediate application. PSNSIMF is the U.S. Navys only facility for breaking and recycling its nuclear powered vessels. A technology that can break Navy vessels at a comparable quality to that of oxy-fuel torch cutting with minimal emissions is needed for the Navy to continue its shipbreaking program without delay and maintain mission readiness. Thus, the site will not be interfered by Notices of Violation for opacity in the future.
