HukariAscendent provided Engineering and Nuclear Safety Support for D&D of multiple Hazard Category 2 and 3 facilities at the Rocky Flats Environmental Technology Site (RFETS).

HukariAscendent provided RFETS with senior-level Subject Matter Experts for programmatic development and implementation in the areas of Engineering, Waste Management/D&D, Quality, Nuclear Safety, and Independent Safety Oversight. HukariAscendent’s specific support in closing RFETS included:

  • Engineering — Systems/Design/Project/Quality
  • Hazardous Waste Management & Compliance
  • Nuclear HVAC Filtration Engineering
  • 10CFR830 Safety Bases Development, Review Implementation and Maintenance (including Hazards Analysis, Safety Analysis Report (SARs), Documented Safety Analyses (DSAs), Bases for Interim Operations (BIOs), Technical Safety Requirements (TSRs), Unreviewed Safety Questions (USQs) and Nuclear Safety Program Development and Implementation
  • Independent Safety Oversight
  • Maintenance & Work Control
  • Emergency Preparedness Hazards Analyses & Response
  • Price Anderson Amendments Act (PAAA) Nuclear Safety Point of Contact
  • Providing various categories of Technical Support, including Quality Assuarance, Fire Protection Engineering, Nuclear Safety Analysts/Engineers, and Environmental Engineers.

HukariAscendent was particularly instrumental in nuclear safety success during RFETS closure. We assisted with development and implementation of the Nuclear Safety Program Manual, conducting open forum, round-table reviews to enable real-time comment incorporation. We also developed a thorough Implementation Plan and workable schedule in concurrence with both operations personnel and the regulator. Personnel were instrumental in development of nuclear safety license documentation that allowed for step-out of approved controls as the D&D hazard was reduced and the use of outdoor waste storage cells.
