We continue to make progress on a project to replace the 242-A Evaporator waste transfer lines. The Evaporator plays a critical role in the Hanford Site cleanup by mission by evaporating water from liquid tank waste to create more space in the double-shell tank system. The liquid waste is pumped from nearby Double-Shell Tank AW-102 to the Evaporator through pipe-in-pipe transfer lines. After the waste-reduction process, returns are sent back to the double-shell tanks in the AW Farm. For the past several weeks, crews on the project have been hand-digging trenches, removing obstructions, building and installing pipe spools inside of the AW Farm and trenching and removing obstructions outside the farm fence line. Previously, crews installed eight wall nozzles – three inside the Evaporator pump room and five inside three separate AW-Farm pits – that will eventually connect the transfer lines. Project completion is scheduled for 2022. #OneHanford #wearewrps Amentum ... See MoreSee Less
