Still seems like a waste. 40 MW, day in day out, for decades, going to waste... quite a few MWh here. 40*24*365*40 years = 14016000 MWh.
At about 14kWh(th)/m^3 desalination, that would have been about 1000,000,000 m^3 of fresh water. Call it ~25,000,000m^3/year. That is barely worth it.


I recon you're right. Still, over decades it amounts to hundreds of millions of $.

Maybe if all dry storage in N. America is hauled into a single site, the prospects of an economic application will improve... security will be easier too (Fort Knox approach).

West Texas nuclear waste site operator asks for a federal time-out

Quote:
Waste Control Specialists, a Dallas company that operates a storage and disposal facility in Andrews County on the Texas-New Mexico line, made its request Tuesday to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Waste Control asked NRC officials to suspend their environmental and safety reviews of WCS’ application to store highly radioactive waste until a possible sale to the Utah company EnergySolutions.
