As part of its “one-stop shop” approach, WCS provides dedicated cask transport services to its customers through an exclusive agreement with Visionary Solutions, LLC. The service offered to our clients will include team drivers (Type B casks) and all necessary permitting, escorts, etc. to transport waste to our facilities. The majority of waste arrives via rail and WCS has its own locomotive with the only rail line in Andrews County, which reduces traffic on public highways.
Type B Cask and Transportation Services
WCS has commissioned three (3) newly designed and fabricated Type B cask systems. The WCS-160 Super A/B cask system features a 160-cubic foot capacity with 5” lead equivalent shielding capability. The casks are outfitted with state-of-the-art 9-axle trailers designed to meet the federal bridge laws in the contiguous 48 states.
Type A Casks
WCS currently has two (2) ATS-215 Type A casks under long term lease. These casks can transport all of the industry’s standard size liners (i.e.; 120, 160, 170, 190, 210, and 215) and provide 2.5” lead equivalent shielding. Additional casks can be provided when needed.
