Washington Group International (WGI) is a leading US engineering, construction and management company. WGI has partnered with Bechtel International Inc. on the Hanford Reservation environmental cleanup project commissioned by the US Department of Energy.
The US Department of Energy needed training tools to simulate toxic chemical removal at the worlds largest treatment plant for nuclear waste.

As principal subcontractor to Bechtel, Washington Group International is using DELMIA ENVISION to build life-like, real-time simulations for training in remotely controlled robotics—and zero-error methods.
Based on the high cost and long downtime required for repairs in contaminated areas, return on investment (ROI) in simulators is projected at between 50:1 and 100:1.
