What is Direct Feed Low-Activity Waste? Part of the Department of Energy’s sequenced approach to treating #Hanford’s tank wastes. In this process, low-activity radioactive waste from Hanford tank farms is fed directly to the Low-Activity Waste Facility, bypassing the Pretreatment Facility.

Strides continue to be made toward completion of the High-Level Waste (HLW) Facility as employees at the #Hanford Vit Plant recently received a crane that will aid in the future installation and maintenance of the facility’s melters.

The crane will be installed in HLW melter cave two where its 25-ton lifting capacity will be used to help employees move support equipment during installation and maintenance of the 90-ton melter.

During operations, the crane will assist with maintenance of equipment in the melter cave.

The crane weighs 50,000 pounds and measures 34.5-feet long, 12-feet wide, and 7-feet tall. It will span the 35-foot wide melter cave and be able to move across the entire 134-foot long area.

The crane was manufactured by +American Crane in Douglassville, Pennsylvania.

A second similar crane will be received in the near future for eventual installation in melter cave one.

More than 180 children in the Tri-Cities will enjoy a Merry Christmas thanks to generous donations from employees at the #Hanford Vit Plant. Employees picked names from Giving Trees around the offices and played the role of Santa for children who are in the care of the local Department of Social and Health Services, Child Protective Services. The Vit Plant Giving Tree is an employee-run effort that has served nearly 1,400 children since 2003. +Bechtel Corporation
