Decommission Light Plant

Westinghouse Electric Corporation
Bloomfield, NJ – 1988 – $2,500,000

Scope of Work:
Neumeyer Environmental assisted in the decommissioning of a former light bulb manufacturing facility. The facility had been used during World War II for the development of the atom bomb. Radiological, mercury and asbestos contamination was present in nearly 1,000,000 square feet of the facility.

The services Neumeyer Environmental provided included:
•Decontamination of building components and equipment.
•Sizing and packaging of contaminated waste.
•Complete dismantling of two buildings.

90% of the structure was decontaminated on site allowing nearly 1,600 tons of debris to be handled as construction debris saving the client substantial disposal costs. The site has been redeveloped as a mixed-use shopping and residential complex.

DOD Reactor-Circulating Pump Facility

Westinghouse Corporation
Cheswick, PA – 1997 – $1,200,000

Scope of Work:
A Department of Defense facility managed by Westinghouse Corporation repaired reactor-circulating pumps that were used on nuclear-powered submarines and ships. After years of operation, radiological and asbestos contaminants were present throughout the structure and subsurface soil. This 30,000 square foot building required decontamination prior to its demolition.

The project involved decontamination of the pump repair building, approximately 30,000 square feet. All interior surfaces were decontaminated on-site. After decontamination, the structure was demolished. Approximately 90% of the structural material was recycled after the decontamination process. Contaminated soil beneath the structure was removed and packaged for off-site disposal. The site was backfilled and readied for site restoration.

Recycling of the demolition debris provided significant savings to Westinghouse.

RMI Titanium Company/Department of Defense

GTS Duratech
Ashtabula, OH – 1997 – $900,000

Scope of Work:
RMI is the leading supplier of specialty metals for the aerospace industry. During renovation of their Astabula facility, Neumeyer Environmental provided disassembly, size reduction and packaging of 3,000 tons of radiologically contaminated machinery that had manufactured projectiles of depleted uranium. The machinery included a 4,000-ton capacity hydraulic press, associated feed and run-out cooling tables, several smaller hydraulic presses, and six preheat furnaces. The furnaces contained radiologically contaminated asbestos refractory and insulation materials.

Neumeyer Environmental disassembled the equipment and properly disposed of the regulated materials. This facility remains in commercial use.

Madame Curie’s Laboratory – Flannery Building

Enercon Services, Inc.
Oakland, PA – 2001-2002 – $825,000

Scope of Work:
Nobel laureate Marie Curie, and others, worked with radiological materials in a five-story building in Oakland that was built around 1900. As a result, the building contained radiological contaminants. The residual radiological contamination within the building was identified along with asbestos containing building materials over time and targeted for remediation.

Neumeyer Environmentals’ scope of work included removal of asbestos materials that had been contaminated by radium. The asbestos materials included flooring, spray-applied fireproofing, and pipe insulation. We installed new thermal insulation systems, and decontaminated building components and mechanical systems.

This historic facility remains in use as office space today.
