Ameren has started moving spent fuel into its new dry cask storage facility in Callaway County that will hold a portion of that fuel. Shannon Abel with Ameren said the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission is also involved in the move to ensure the process is done safely.

“We have lots of regulatory oversight to ensure that this is done correctly and safely,” said Abel.

Abel said there have been five successful trials runs completed prior to moving the spent fuel. He said the move is another safe method to store its fuel.
