The Sequoia Detector Vessel is considered to be one of the largest vacuum chambers in North America and is the largest vacuum chamber at any neutron scattering facility in the world.

Grantec's work for the Sequoia vessels is featured in the March 2009 edition of the Business Excellence (Boston, MA) magazine and the Spring 2009 edition of The Engineer (published by Engineers Nova Scotia).
