Radiation safety is an important part of safety assessment of spent fuel dry storage technology. This paper describes the radiation protection design of PWR spent fuel dry storage facility for radiation safety completed by China General Nuclear Power Corporation. Considering the special site conditions, Monte Carlo method is used to complete the precise calculation of the three-dimensional radiation dose field in the spent fuel storage building. Through the spent fuel storage module and the storage building with shielding function, radiation shielding design is completed to meet China’s regulatory requirements, which ensures radiation safety for workers and the public during the transport and storage of spent fuel. It will provide a reference for construction of spent fuel dry storage facility of CPR1000 and HPR1000.
