Nuclear Research Reactor Conversion Study

ERG participated in a study for the City of Richland, Washington’s Energy Services Department which investigated the feasibility of acquiring ownership of and conversion of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (“USDOE”) Fast Flux Test Facility Nuclear Research Reactor (“FFTF”) located on USDOE’s Hanford Reservation to commercial use. The study focused on technical issues related to adapting the facility for power generation, licensing requirements, and development of necessary transmission additions to support the project. In conjunction with the engagement, an economic/financial analysis of the project was also performed.
