The radioactive liquid waste generated at PREFRE 3A, Kalpakkam will be transferred to the waste tank farm (WTF-P3A), for interim storage. The WTF vault and tanks are to be constructed fully underground, with only the auxiliary facilities located above ground. This paper presents the results of the shielding assessment carried out. Calculations have also been made for the decay heat source and hydrogen production rate in the waste solutions. It was concluded that, from bulk shielding point of view, the default shield thicknesses were adequate and that the HLW tanks are adequately cooled and vented.
