Project Overview:

Bechtel is designing, constructing, and commissioning the world's largest radioactive-waste treatment plant for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) in southeastern Washington state. The project will use vitrification technology to process and stabilize 56 million gallons (212 million liters) of radioactive and chemical waste stored at the Hanford Site which is a byproduct of plutonium production during World War II and the Cold War era.

The cleanup project is one of DOE's most technically challenging and the largest undertaking of its
kind—equivalent to building two nuclear power plants. The construction site spans 65 acres (26
hectares) and includes facilities for pretreatment, low-activity waste vitrification, high-level waste
vitrification, and the analytical laboratory – as well as operations and maintenance buildings, utilities,
and other support facilities.

Positions located at the Construction Site (22 miles north of Richland) work a 4 x 10 schedule, M-Th,
6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Other work locations may work a 9-80's schedule, M-F 7:00 am to 4:30 pm with
alternating Fridays off. Extended hours as needed.
