MONTREAL, Dec. 16, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - Atkins Nuclear Secured Holdings Corporation, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group's (TSX: SNC) nuclear sector, is pleased to announce that Central Plateau Cleanup Company LLC (CPC Co), an AECOM-led joint venture with Atkins and Fluor, has been selected for the Central Plateau Cleanup Contract at the Hanford Site near Richland, Washington, from the Department of Energy (DOE). The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract is valued at $10 billion over 10 years. This nuclear services contract is within SNCL Engineering Services, the cornerstone of our strategy moving forward to greater growth and profitability.
The Central Plateau Cleanup Contract will achieve end state closure of facilities, waste burial sites, and groundwater remediation in the river corridor of the Hanford Reservation along the Columbia River. The scope will also include decommissioning and dismantlement of several legacy facilities on the Central Plateau of the Hanford Reservation. CPC Co will manage waste disposition activities for the on-site disposal facility as well as off-site disposal operations.
"We are pleased that the DOE sees the value in our team to safely execute cleanup work at Hanford," said Tom Jouvanis, President, Atkins Nuclear Secured. "We look forward to continue our work to reduce the environmental risk for the Tri-City communities in Washington State."
The CPC Co brings the depth and breadth of three leading nuclear industry companies – AECOM, Atkins and Fluor – making it the single largest and most experienced nuclear end state delivery team assembled in the DOE complex. Within the 179 years of combined nuclear experience, including 63 years at Hanford, the three companies have collectively decommissioned 1,179 facilities and dispositioned more waste than any other American company.
