We have supplied RP, decontamination & Janitorial Services since 1994...
BHI Energy and Duke Energy would like to express our thanks for your choice in coming to help us in our upcoming outage.
BHI Energy is extremely proud of the long standing relationship we have here at H.B. Robinson. Each of those 21 years mentioned above, BHI Energy has been part of that team. We take a lot of pride in the way our team members are part of the day to day operation of the plant. BHI Energy supplies all the Contract Radiation Protection and Decontamination Services as well as Housekeeping and Grounds Maintenance. The very first day you come on site you will see that pride showing with freshly mown grounds, clean, well maintained facilities and people ready and willing to make your stay an enjoyable one. Each of us look forward to meeting new friends, working with the regulars and starting on the journey to make RO-30 the most successful outage to date.
