Hanford Developing New Techniques for Tank Refurbishment Technology

At Hanford’s Cold Test Facility, crews recently demonstrated that robots equipped with cold spray technology can refurbish a mock annulus floor. This was a significant step forward in potentially incorporating the technology into Hanford’s tank integrity toolkit. Stephanie Doll, WRPS technical lead for tank refurbishment projects, expressed her admiration for the cold spray technology and its potential application for the Hanford double-shell tanks based on data collected during full-scale demonstrations.

The recent demonstration confirmed the system’s capabilities and marked a significant milestone in the project’s success. Doll highlighted the impressive progress made by the team and emphasized the importance of the field crew’s feedback and expertise in advancing the project. By showcasing the effectiveness of robots equipped with cold spray technology in refurbishing the annulus floor, the demonstration has paved the way for further exploration of this innovative approach to tank maintenance at Hanford.
