FAQ: Nuclear Energy Industry Develops FLEX Strategy to Increase Safety, Address NRC’s Post-Fukushima Recommendations
FLEX seems to be the nuclear industry's version of International Rescue, AKA Thunderbirds Lite. Though the way Fukushima played out, heavy airlift with VTOL or high speed sea transport (where appropriate) may be what is necessary. But if you follow that route, you would be asking for something like a heavy lift cargo tiltrotor aircraft (such as quad tiltrotor) or a high speed SES (like the US Navy's high speed assault connector ship designs) to deliver the generators and other equipment quickly.
