Hanford Effluent Management Facility Powerhouse Powers Up

RICHLAND, Wash. – Crews at Hanford Site's Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant recently completed construction and startup at the Effluent Management Facility electrical powerhouse building (pictured at front, left). The building has been handed over to the waste treatment plant commissioning team to ensure the systems are integrated, validated and ready to support future plant operations. The powerhouse contains transformers, motor control centers, and more than 11,000 feet of electrical cable. The 13.8-kilovolt powerhouse will provide electricity to facility systems and processing equipment. In the meantime, remaining effluent facility work continues as the last major waste treatment plant construction project to support Direct-Feed Low-Activity Waste operations.
