This 65-ton stainless steel vessel was barged up the Columbia River from Vancouver to Richland last summer. PNNL researchers are helping Bechtel National test the vessels that will receive, store and process radioactive sludge at the Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant’s Pretreatment Facility before it is vitrified. The full-scale vessel is 35 feet high with a 16-foot diameter and 22,000-gallon capacity.
