NEWPORT NEWS, Va., July 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Huntington Ingalls Industries’ (NYSE:HII) Technical Solutions division announced today that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Environmental Management has awarded a contract to Nationwide Remediation Partners, a joint venture led by HII Nuclear, to provide nationwide deactivation, decommissioning and removal services at excess DOE facilities. The multiple award indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract has a 10-year ordering period, with a maximum ordering ceiling of $3 billion.
Nationwide Remediation Partners is joined by EnergySolutions Federal Support, LLC and Navarro Research and Engineering, Inc., a woman-owned small business. American Demolition and Nuclear Decommissioning, a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business, is a named subcontractor.
“This contract award further strengthens our deep and long-standing relationship with the Department of Energy. We take pride in safely and efficiently supporting DOE in achieving our nation’s most complex environmental management missions,” said Michael Lempke, president of Technical Solutions’ Nuclear and Environmental Services. “HII’s approach in crafting the team reaffirms our commitment to small businesses, and the strategic partnerships formed through this joint venture will enhance our collective competitiveness in the growing government and commercial nuclear decommissioning markets.”
The work will primarily be conducted at excess DOE facilities across the nation. Support through this contract vehicle will also be available to the National Nuclear Security Administration, Office of Naval Reactors, Office of Science and other DOE and federal agencies that may request environmental management assistance.
