Satsop Business Park receive international attention

June 17, 2013

The Satsop Business Park is featured this month in an international magazine focused on tunnels.

Last year, the park worked to create a training facility to utilize the leftover construction from the nuclear site. The existing tunnels allow for realistic training in a controlled environment.

Tunnels & Tunnelling International magazine’s June/July issue will feature the facility. The magazine and digital version reaches more than 100 countries.

Alissa Thurman, Manager of Business Development at Satsop said “The tunnels are truly a unique asset and we would love to see them more widely used“

The tunnels, which are 12ft-diameter water pipes located 27ft below ground, were excavated and enhanced in 2012. Since then, groups such as the Seattle Fire Department and others have trained at the facility in preparation for the Alaskan Way Viaduct construction.

Local journalist Gail Ayres wrote the story for the issue.
