SONGS Decommissioning Support

Empyrean is proud of its partnership with Southern California Edison. Recently, we successfully completed a comprehensive Records Management Backlog Reduction Project for the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS). This project, which spanned 2015 and 2016, was completed within budget and on schedule as recognized by SONGS senior management.

To support this project, Empyrean employed 28 individuals who worked for approximately 250,000 hours with no lost time accident. Empyrean was proud to be able to use past SONGS employees and other employees from the local area to support this project.

In 2017 and beyond, Empyrean looks forward to providing support to the SONGS Decommissioning General Contractor (DGC). The DGC is a joint venture of AECOM and EnergySolutions and is officially known as SONGS Decommissioning Solutions (SDS). To accomplish this, Empyrean is presently looking for seasoned expertise in certain key areas. We are specifically targeting past SONGS employees who have had a successful track record in these areas and continue to be local to the area.


We expect the assignments to be of varying duration ranging from six months to several years depending on SDS needs.  We also expect to utilize the services of Subject Matter Experts (SME’s) in these areas to provide very short term consulting assistance. 

While some of the assignments may start by the end of the first quarter of 2017, others may be staggered over the year extending into 2018 when actual field activities are expected to commence.

If interested in pursuing any of these opportunities, please call one of our staff associates, Ben Litman at 412-528-1767; or submit your resume to Please put SONGS in the subject line while submitting your resume.

Empyrean seeks your support and professional association to be responsive to SDS needs.  We are proud of our vast network of our present and past employees who have recognized Empyrean as a valued employer.  Find out more at

We look forward to an opportunity to be of assistance to you and to work with you in the near future.
