PHOENIX – The Hanford Site is focused on key infrastructure needs to ensure it is well-prepared for the future, participants were told at the 2019 Waste Management Symposia.

   EM Richland Operations Office (RL) contractor Mission Support Alliance’s (MSA) Director of Project Services Rick Moren said the site is moving to address its infrastructure requirements.

   “We have a critical need to reconfigure, rejuvenate and right-size Hanford’s aging infrastructure to support both current and future missions,” Moren said in a presentation.

   Working with an infrastructure that is, in some cases, 75 years old, and as the site prepares for around-the-clock operations at the Hanford Tank Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant, RL and MSA are keenly focused on reliability projects, Moren said.

   “Utility systems, roads, and information technology are focus areas targeted for upgrades in the years ahead at Hanford,” Moren said

   Moren’s presentation included the video that can be seen here.
