SNC-Lavalin joint venture to decommission US federal nuclear assets at Hanford site

MONTREAL, Sept. 17, 2020 /CNW Telbec/ - SNC-Lavalin announced today that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) provided Central Plateau Cleanup Company LLC (CPC Co) the Notice to Proceed on the Central Plateau Cleanup Contract at the Hanford Site near Richland, Washington. CPC Co is an Amentum-led joint venture with Atkins Nuclear Secured, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, and Fluor. The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract is valued at USD $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 support for our partner and customer.

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.

"This contract demonstrates the strength of SNC-Lavalin's expertise in developing and carrying out decontamination and decommissioning plans of federal nuclear assets," said Sandy Taylor, President, Nuclear, SNC-Lavalin. "We have a long history of working with the DOE to safely and economically cleanup nuclear facilities and are proud to support the DOE on achieving end state closure at the Hanford site."

The Central Plateau Cleanup Company brings the depth and breadth of three leading nuclear industry companies – Amentum, Fluor and Atkins – making it one of the largest and most experienced nuclear end state delivery teams assembled in the U.S. Department of Energy complex. With more than 100 years of combined nuclear experience, including 63 years at Hanford, these companies have collectively decommissioned 1,179 facilities and dispositioned more waste for the U.S. cleanup program than any other company.
