American Crane and Equipment is excited to announce its contribution to the construction of the world’s largest radio-active waste treatment plant. Our 3 Ton Bridge Crane was recently installed at the Hanford Vitrification Plant, located in the southeastern part of Washington State.
Our highly integrated and specialized Bridge Crane (weighing 6 tons and spanning over 17 feet) is designed and equipped to handle high levels of radiation via onboard systems that allow for remote operation and recovery. The special features of this crane enable the handling of the radioactive waste, which once vitrified will be placed in 55 gallon carbon steel drums.
The Department of Energy commissioned the design and construction of the project to Bechtel National Corporation. The teamwork and cooperation between all parties involved in the project led to a successful and timely installation. For more articles related to this project visit http://www.hanfordvitplant.com/.
