The EnergySolutions Canada Walker Operations Facility is a radioactive waste and materials management facility that safely manages nuclear material. The facility operates under a broad Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) Waste Nuclear Substance License (WNSL).
The 12,000 square meter (130,000 square foot) facility is designed specifically to provide services for reactor tooling storage & refurbishment, as well as low-level radioactive waste management for Canadian Utilities, hospitals & research facilities.
EnergySolutions Canada has access to the full range of U.S. processing capabilities. Waste accepted at the EnergySolutions Canada Facility is processed through a rigorous screening process, packaged and transported by truck or rail to Bear Creek for processing.
EnergySolutions Canada utilizes two EnergySolutions transportation companies to transport radioactive material for processing. EnergySolutions owns and operates PHTS Logistics which has been in business since 1996 for transportation of material within Canada. PHTS has a fleet of more than 45 vehicles to fulfill the transportation needs of its Canadian customers. The company manages small shipments and loads weighing up to 96,000 pounds. Headquartered near Kincarden, Ontario and close to Bruce Power, PHTS provides logistical services to the entire nuclear Canadian market. For material that is processed in our Tennessee facilities, EnergySolutions uses Hittman Transportation to transport materials across the border into the United States for processing and volume reduction or recycling. Hittman transportation is headquartered in Oak Ridge, Tennessee and manages transportation of nuclear material across the United States.
