Precision provided cost consulting services for the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant (DCPP) Decommissioning Project. This analysis focused on construction costs related to the hazardous waste transfer station located in Pismo Beach, CA.
As the project cost consultant, Precision assessed options to remove the hazardous waste derived from decommissioning operations. The most cost effective answer was by railroad. In order to accomplish this, the Rail Yard needed to be modified to meet the project needs.
As a result, significant facility upgrades and site modifications were made. Specifically, the modifications included: a new 20,000 SF Hazardous Waste Transfer Building, 3,100 LF of new rail track, air quality monitoring systems, upgraded facility lighting, a guard house, automated lift gates, and extensive roadway and traffic signal improvements.
