Contract valued at $420 million
Fluor is the prime contractor for the management, integration and execution of the deactivation and post-GDP shutdown remediation
activities at the Paducah site. It is anticipated that the new contract will help reduce environmental risks and create local job opportunities. The estimated value of the contract, which Fluor booked in the third quarter of 2014, is approximately $420 million over three years.
“By leveraging the gaseous diffusion plant experience we’ve gained at Portsmouth and Fluor’s decades of experience managing and operating nuclear decommissioning sites, we look forward to working with the Department of Energy to deliver the site’s program safely and cost effectively,” said Bruce Stanski, president of Fluor’s Government Group.
The Paducah GDP is a 3,423-acre federal reservation that was built in the 1950s as part of the nation’s nuclear weapons complex and enriched uranium from 1952 until 2013. Limited cleanup activities have been underway since 2010.
Fluor’s scope of work will include the management, integration and execution of the deactivation and post-GDP shutdown remediation activities at the site along with cleaning up and remediating contaminated soils and groundwater.
