Greenberry Industrial named Small Business Supplier of the Year

Summary

Hanford Vit Plant subcontractor Greenberry Industrial was named Small Business Supplier of the Year by Bechtel.

Hanford Vit Plant subcontractor Greenberry Industrial of Vancouver, Washington, was named Small Business Supplier of the Year by Bechtel at its annual Supply Chain Recognition Awards event.

Greenberry is fabricating a 16-foot-diameter by 38-foot tall stainless steel test vessel at its Vancouver facility. Later this summer, it will be barged up the Columbia River to Richland, Washington.

In Richland, the vessel will be installed in a facility specifically designed for full-scale testing of the vessels to be used to properly mix radioactive liquid wastes at the Vit Plant, formally known as the Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant. The testing will use nonradioactive materials.

Greenberry was among 35 companies honored for work supporting Bechtel’s Nuclear, Security and Environmental global business operating unit during 2015. Bechtel awarded the test vessel fabrication subcontract to Greenberry in mid-2015.

The Vit Plant, one of Bechtel’s largest projects, purchased more than $161 million in goods and services from 443 suppliers and subcontractors in 2015, much of it in Washington and Oregon.

A Bechtel news release about the award to Greenberry and more than 30 others is available on the Bechtel website.

The 16-foot-diameter test vessel is being fabricated by Greenberry Industrial in Vancouver, Washington.

The 16-foot-diameter test vessel being fabricated in Vancouver will be barged up the Columbia River to Richland later this summer.
