Transportation engineering support for complex remediation projects

Since remediation requires moving large amounts of hazardous material, the transportation and packaging of such material is a significant aspect of the clean-up operation at the Hanford Site. Following the Tank Waste Remediation System Project funding in 1991, the Transportation and Packaging department was given nine months to perform a packaging safety analysis for the onsite waste tank sample transport system. Out of this effort came the Packaging Design System as the first step in a packaging project. Three successful examples of project management related to packaging are described: the Test Reactor and Isotope Production General Atomics (TRIGA) reactor decommissioning, the Post-Accident Sample-1 (PAS-1) packaging, and the hydrogen mitigation mixer pump packaging.
