ASHBURN, Va., Feb. 14, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Critical Solutions Inc. (Pink Sheets:CSLI), the designer of innovative renewable energy tower systems, today announced that the Company's subsidiary, White Door, Inc. has received a purchase order from Washington River Protection Solutions (WRPS) for four more remote monitoring systems. The systems, which utilize 100 percent renewable energy, are used for security purposes including incident prevention. They will be deployed at the Hanford Waste Treatment Plant where they will be used to provide surveillance within the nuclear tank farm waste retrieval area. The four new remote monitoring units will be added to the 20 existing units already in place.
WRPS is a prime contractor to the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of River Protection and is charged with eliminating the risk to the environment posed by 53,000,000 gallons of radioactive and chemical waste stored in Hanford's 177 underground tanks.
"We believe WRPS's commitment to safety and their dedication to bringing proven and innovative technologies such as our remote monitoring systems which are solely powered on renewable energy, demonstrates firsthand their confidence in us through another purchase order," said White Door, Inc.'s Executive Vice President of Business Development, John Jacob. "This new order, along with the fact that we already have 20 units in place, validates the effectiveness of our unique remote surveillance systems."
The Hanford site has a vast history. Established in 1943 as part of the Manhattan Project in the town of Hanford, WA, the site was the home of the B Reactor, the first full-scale plutonium production reactor in the world. Plutonium manufactured at the site was used in the first nuclear bomb, tested at the Trinity site, and in Fat Man, the bomb detonated over Nagasaki, Japan. It is comprised of 586 square miles which is approximately the equivalent of a third of the total area of the state of Rhode Island. Hanford operations are currently directed by the U.S. Department of Energy.
WRPS, owned by URS Corporation and EnergySolutions, with integrated subcontractor AREVA, is a prime contractor to the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of River Protection and is responsible for reducing the risk posed by the waste stored in Hanford's aging underground tanks.
WRPS is working to transfer the waste stored in 149 leak-prone single-shell tanks — some of which date back to World War II — to newer, safer double-shell tanks. It is also preparing for delivery of the waste to Hanford's Waste Treatment Plant where it will be converted to a stable glass form for permanent disposition.
