Flour gets extension on Portsmouth gas plant decommission contract

IRVING, US: Fluor Corporation said that the US Department of Energy (DOE) has exercised its option to extend the decontamination and decommissioning work on the former Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant in Piketon, Ohio, for an additional 30 months. The contract will be executed by Fluor-BWXT Portsmouth, LLC, a Fluor-led partnership, together with subcontractors CH2M and small businesses Pro2Serve, Innovative Solutions and Wastren Advantage Inc.

The estimated value of the option period is approximately $750 million.

Fluor-BWXT started work on the initial five-year contract on 28 March, 2011. The contract extension includes completing deactivation of the massive X-326 uranium enrichment plant, initiating deactivation work in the X-333 process building, continuing the uranium barter programme, completing On-Site Waste Disposal Facility design and moving construction forward to prepare the first cells to receive contaminated plant soils and demolition debris. The new contract includes an option for an additional 30-month contract extension.

“I’m proud of the many site milestones that have been reached, including two Records of Decision for the disposition of millions of cubic yards of waste, processing $1 billion dollars in uranium inventory for barter and removal, and the safe shipment of more than 7,000 process gas system components,” said Bruce Stanski, president of Fluor’s government group.

“DOE, Fluor-BWXT and our many stakeholders are aligned on the future vision of the site thereby creating the opportunity for its reuse and redevelopment,” said Dennis Carr, project director, Fluor-BWXT.
