Size Reduction

Size reduction, aka secondary segmentation, is a method frequently used in demolition and nuclear decommissioning jobs to cut a structure into pieces sized to match crane capacity, transportation capacity, and/or waste disposal containment capacity. 

Size reduction can significantly decrease shipping and disposal expenses.

When a decommissioning job requires secondary segmentation of heavy metal objects, Bluegrass has the diamond wire saws, core drills, support structures, and experience mobilizing men and equipment to get these jobs done efficiently, safely, and on schedule.
