Decommissioning and Demolition of a Nuclear Reactor

Location: Michigan

BGI provided safety and industrial hygiene management support for a Prime Contractor during the technically complex decommissioning and demolition of the Enrico Fermi I Nuclear Reactor in Township, MI.  BGI was instrumental in implementing the industrial hygiene program for the client.  In the course of our support, BGI personnel identified and developed mitigation plans for numerous potential hazards that included:

  • Hexavalent chromium emissions during stainless steel cutting using plasma cutting equipment
  • Residual radiation contamination
  • Lead-based paint contamination
  • Asbestos insulation removal
