WSU Tri-Cities' control room to be lifted Monday

Tri-City HeraldApril 18, 2014 

A crane is scheduled to lift a 30-ton control room onto the top of a tower at the EnergySolutions Engineering Laboratory at Washington State University Tri-Cities in Richland on Monday morning.

The lift by Lampson International is scheduled from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m., weather permitting.

The 90-foot-high control tower might become a new Richland landmark with crimson WSU logos that will shine at night, courtesy of LED lighting. It is near the intersection of University Drive and George Washington Way.

The laboratory, with a 10,000-square-foot high bay and 3,000 square feet of office space, was built to resolve tank mixing issues at Hanford's vitrification plant. EnergySolutions donated the lab to WSU and is leasing it back while it performs mixing tests.
