DOE Environmental Management Bulletin – EM Sites to See Cost Savings From Sharing Equipment to Relocate Waste

January 16, 2018 – “Cost savings will result from two EM cleanup sites sharing highly specialized equipment for packaging and relocating nuclear waste to storage locations.

Workers at the West Valley Demonstration Project (WVDP) in New York shipped welding equipment to the Richland Operations Office (RL) at the Hanford Site in Washington state on Jan. 8 to assist in proposed packaging and moving of radioactive cesium and strontium capsules to dry storage. Sharing the equipment valued at approximately $2.4 million helps the sites achieve savings.” Link to Bulletin
