EnergySolutions is an international company headquartered in Salt Lake City, UT. As a worldwide leader in the safe recycling, processing and disposal of nuclear material, we provide innovations and technologies to the U.S. Department of Energy, commercial utilities, medical and research facilities. In the United Kingdom, we operate and provide nuclear decommissioning services for 22 nuclear power plants. Mr. David Lockwood is CEO and President, appointed in June 2012. Energy Capital Partners acquired EnergySolutions in May, 2013.
EnergySolutions is the owner-operator of the Clive Disposal Facility, which has been in operation since 1988 and is licensed to dispose of Class A low-level radioactive waste only. The Clive facility is located 80 miles west of Salt Lake City (in Tooele County) near a rail siding named Clive. This location was selected by the Department of Energy (DOE) as a disposal site for cleanup of the Vitro Chemical Company, a former uranium mill site located in South Salt Lake. DOE and the State of Utah investigated 29 sites in Utah to identify the safest permanent home for these materials. The site’s remote location, low precipitation, naturally poor groundwater, and low-permeability clay soils were some of the reasons the area was selected. Mr. James A. Miller is Vice President and General Manager of the Clive Site.
From 1984 through 1988, the 23 million yards of Vitro tailings were relocated to Clive and placed in an above-ground disposal cell designed to shed water, prevent erosion, and contain the tailings for 1,000 years. The federal government now maintains those tailings. The EnergySolutions facility surrounds the existing Vitro Disposal site.
