EM Update -West Valley Gets an ‘Arm Up’ on Main Plant Process Building Demolition

March 2, 2021 – EM and cleanup contractor CH2M HILL BWXT West Valley (CHBWV) recently installed a long‐reach arm on an excavator for ease of access in the demolition of the Main Plant Process Building at the West Valley Demonstration Project (WVDP).

The new arm extends the excavator’s reach from 50 feet to 86 feet, allowing the operator to get to the plant’s highest point of 79 feet. Crews also added a new tilt cab to the excavator to improve the operator’s view when performing highreach work. Link to article
