NNSA Associate Principal Deputy Administrator Michael Lempke recently visited the Savannah River Site, getting an up-close look at facilities that play important roles in NNSA’s mission. His three days of tours included the Tritium Extraction Facility. Tours of other Savannah River Tritium Enterprise facilities gave him the opportunity to view the new Tritium Instrumentation Demonstration Station (shown), a collaborative effort with the Savannah River National Laboratory to move new sensors from development into tritium service. In addition to SRTE and SRNL, Lempke visited other SRS facilities, including H Canyon, the only hardened nuclear chemical separations plant still in operation in the country.
