Back in mid-2016, David Gilson was searching the web for a solution for the Humboldt Bay Decommissioning Project that his company, Chicago Bridge and Iron Company (CB&I) is involved in.
The company predicted that the Humboldt Bay Decommissioning Project would end up with large piles of concrete at its radioactive facility, as a result of working with a reactor caisson. Gilson, the project manager for CB&I’s waste management, needed a way to process these concrete waste and radioactive material.
After reviewing several companies and their equipment, his search lead him to MB crusher buckets.
“We settled on MB America because their product was high quality. Their products and customer service that they brought to our table for us was phenomenal,” Gilson said. “We actually purchased two of these BF90.3 [crushers]. [The crusher buckets are] very, very quiet, which is impressive for us here with radioactive material.”
