Savannah River Remediation Donates Funds to Radiation Protection Technology Program

Article written by Savannah River Remediation (SRR) and shared with permission from SRR.

Savannah River Site (SRS) liquid waste contractor Savannah River Remediation (SRR) recently donated $5,000 to the Aiken Technical College (ATC) Radiation Protection Technology program.

Part of the donation was made possible after SRR received the 2020 Richard S. Hodes Award. This award, presented at the Waste Management 2020 Symposia, was given on behalf of the Southeast Compact Commission, a regional commission for low-level radioactive waste management. SRR was recognized as effectively and safely managing low-level radioactive waste in an environmentally responsible manner. As part of the award, SRR received a check to use in the community.

SRR’s donation to ATC will help fund needed training materials for the RPT-233 Radioactive Materials Handling course. This course trains students to provide safe control, movement, use, storage, transportation, and disposal of radioactive materials.

ATC President Dr. Forest Mahan says SRR’s donation is a dual investment.

“SRR’s partnering with Aiken Technical College is an important educational investment that helps ATC invest in the local nuclear industry,” Dr. Mahan said. “As students become skilled in the safe handling techniques through our program, they are positioned to successfully enter a career in the nuclear industry workforce.”

SRR President and Project Manager Phil Breidenbach said that teamwork is an important SRR core value that extends into the community.

“It is the talent, skill, and teamwork of our employees that makes receiving awards such as the Hodes Award possible,” Breidenbach said. “Investing in education outreach opportunities at institutions like Aiken Technical College helps us develop the talent we need to continue the liquid waste mission at the Savannah River Site safely into the future.”

 

SRR is a team of companies led by Amentum with partners Bechtel National, Jacobs, and BWX Technologies, Inc. Critical subcontractors for the contract are Orano, Atkins, and Amentum N&E Technical Services.

Aiken Technical College, located in Graniteville, SC, is a public, open-door, two-year comprehensive institution of higher education established to provide citizens of greater Aiken County opportunities for educational and workforce development. ATC is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.
