PACKAGE CONSISTS OF A DEACTIVATED AND DEFUELED S2WA, S5W, OR S6G REACTOR COMPARTMENT WHICH HAS BEEN SEPARATED FROM THE REMAINDER OF THE SUBMARINE HULL AND PREPARED FOR SHIPMENT BY SEALING ALL OPENINGS AND ATTACHING HANDLING FIXTURES. FOR EACH PACKAGE MODEL, THE REACTOR COMPARTMENT ITSELF IS BETWEEN TWO CONTAINMENT BULKHEADS WHICH ARE ADDED TO THE PACKAGE BEFORE SHIPPING. THE SHIP'S HULL AND THE CONTAINMENT BULKHEADS DEFINE THE PACKAGE CONTAINMENT BOUNDARIES. THE CONTAINMENT BULKHEADS ARE EITHER INSTALLED AT THE ENDS OF THE PACKAGE OR RECESSED. THE STRENGTH OF ALL PACKAGE BOUNDARY CLOSURES IS EQUIVALENT TO THE STRENGTH OF THE SHIP'S BULKHEADS. THE DEACTIVATED REACTOR PLANT REMAINS IN PLACE WITHIN THE REACTOR COMPARTMENT DURING SHIPMENT. THE PLANT IS DEFUELED AND DRAINED EXCEPT FOR SMALL INACCESSIBLE POCKETS OF LIQUID, PRIMARILY WATER. POTENTIALLY RADIOACTIVELY CONTAMINATED COMPONENTS AND PIPING FROM OTHER LOCATIONS IN THE SHIP MAY BE PLACED WITHIN THE PACKAGE AND SECURED.
