DOE EM Update – West Valley Demolishes Inactive Ventilation System Structures, Components

September 24, 2019 – Crews recently demolished two Waste Tank Farm condenser structures and an equipment shelter at the West Valley Demonstration Project (WVDP). These structures were associated with the Main Plant Process Building’s former ventilation system, which was taken out of service in 2001. This recent demolition brings EM’s total number of structures removed at the site to 64.

WVDP personnel removed, size-reduced, and packaged the two condenser structures for off-site disposal. Each condenser contained two heat exchangers that cooled the off-gas and condensed the vapor. Each 360-square-foot structure was constructed in 1966 to remove water vapor from the tank off-gas ventilation system and was further treated and filtered before being directed to the Main Plant Process Building stack.
