Springville Journal – West Valley safely demolishes inactive ventilation system structures and components

November 7, 2019 – Crews recently demolished two waste tank farm condenser structures and its equipment shelter at the West Valley Demonstration Project. 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 West Valley to 64.

WVDP personnel removed, size‐reduced and packaged the two condenser structures for offsite disposal. Each condenser contained two heat exchangers that cooled the off‐gas and condensed the vapor. Each 360‐square feet 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.
