Preliminary Documented Safety Analysis Assessment at the Hanford Site Capsule Storage Area

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Nuclear Safety and Environmental Assessments, within the independent Office of Enterprise Assessments (EA), conducted an assessment of the Capsule Storage Area (CSA) preliminary documented safety analysis (PDSA) and safety evaluation report (SER) as part of the Management of the Cesium and Strontium Capsules (MCSC) Project at the Hanford Site. The MCSC Project is managed by CH2M HILL Plateau Remediation Company (CHPRC) under the direction and oversight of the DOE Richland Operations Office (RL). NAC International is the design agent under subcontract to CHPRC. This assessment, conducted from May 2019 through September 2020, is part of an ongoing activity of independent oversight of new DOE nuclear facility projects to fulfill requirements specified in DOE appropriations legislation.
