Hanford Virtual Tour Web Site Unveiling

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and its Hanford cleanup contractors are unveiling a new virtual tour platform to the public tomorrow, January 14, 5 – 7 p.m. PT. Brian Vance, manager of the Hanford Site for DOE, along with contractor presidents, will present the new virtual tours program to an audience through the online meeting platform, Teams Live Events. The presentation will include live cleanup updates from senior leaders, as well as a question and answer opportunity.

Following this live, interactive introduction to the new virtual tour platform, members of the public can access the tours program at, by clicking the associated virtual tours banner. Participants will be able to “visit” up to 20 Hanford locations with 360-degree views, accompanied with descriptions to provide context on the various projects.

The virtual tour website will give participants an in-depth look at several key projects that support cleanup efforts at the Hanford Site. Some of the well-known locations that visitors will be able to view include: Hanford’s 324 Building, 200 West Groundwater Treatment Project, structures associated with Hanford’s Direct Feed Low Activity Waste program, tank farms, and the Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant.

Hanford’s virtual tour website is designed to be self-guided and will have the potential to reach an unlimited audience. The website will be accessible to the public after the public presentation on January 14.
