Upper stringers for fuel bundles in the Unit 2 reactor hall.

Upper stringers for fuel bundles in the Unit 2 reactor hall. These pieces have a pin in the foreground for coupling to the RZM machine. At the far end is a spiral geometry designed to help shield streaming neutrons. Two fuel bundles, each about three meters long, would have been attached at the far ends for insertion into the reactor core.
