Large spent fuel repository planned for Krasnoyarsk region

Krasnoyarsk region has been chosen to host a large spent fuel repository that would accommodate "more than 40,000 tonnes" of spent fuel, according to Igor Konyshev, a Rosatom official. This repository appears to be different from the one the storage facility that would be attached to a reprocessing plant that is being planned for Zheleznogorsk (that facility was reported to have maximum capacity of 11,000 tonnes of heavy metal).
