NIST – Cooling Tower

Gaithersburg, MD – Hyperion’s IDIQ contract supports the NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) in the development, design, manufacture, and installation of complex systems and sub-systems in support of the NCNR facility operations and safety systems. Hyperion has completed several projects for NIST; one such project was the Installation of Cooling Tower Maintenance Platforms. For this project, Hyperion designed, furnished, and installed a maintenance platform inside each of the three cooling towers. Each platform provided access to a gearbox by encircling it and allowing for full access.
