Fast Flux Test Facility, Washington

This 400MW reactor at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation was built in 1982 for breeder reactor research and enriched uranium production, and is owned by the U.S. Department of Energy. It was closed in 1992, and currently is in a state of cold shut down. It is in the 400 Area of Hanford, outside the restricted contaminated area that lies beyond the Wye Barricade. In 2006, it was declared a "National Nuclear Historic Landmark," by the American Nuclear Society, in part due to its safety record, fuel performance, and production of high quality medical and industrial radioisotopes.
