Like Roy, I had OSRP remove an irradiator and it took longer than two years for the wait, I think because the irradiator was constructed before the US had type B shipping container specs. The unit met international specs but not US. And on top of that it was an AECL irradiator and they did not update or renew the type certification so they had to over pack it in a type B container.
Anyway I am surprised if they said it didn't fit with their mission, I thought that is what OSRP was all about getting old high activity sources into permanent secure storage.
