Sometimes an unplanned event comes along that must be handled immediately, whatever it takes. After an earthquake and subsequent tsunami caused the failure of the Fukushima power plant in Japan, Springs Fabrication quickly became involved in an intense effort to design and build an ion exchange system to process the water used to cool the damaged power plant`s reactor. Coordinating efforts with two other Fabricators across the country, Springs Fabrication lead the design initiative and manufacture of the ion exchange vessels and process skids. The time to market on this project was only four weeks from initial client meeting to first shipment. Our dedicated team of craftsmen and professionals worked 12-16 hours a day, 7 days a week, for 7 weeks, working closely with our customer and their engineering contractor to ensure project success. Springs Fabrication has built over 400 of the ion exchange vessels to support the on-going remediation process.
