Shaw gets GE contract to operate sediment processing facility

BATON ROUGE, US: The Shaw Group’s, Environmental & Infrastructure Group has been awarded a contract to operate the sediment processing facility for the second phase of the General Electric’s Hudson river dredging project.

The facility is located in Fort Edward, New York and includes a barge terminal, dewatering building, water treatment plant and railroad staging area. Shaw provided similar operations and maintenance services for the project's first phase, which was conducted in 2009. The undisclosed value of the contract will be included in Shaw’s Environmental & Infrastructure segment’s backlog of unfilled orders in the third quarter of fiscal year 2011.

“For decades, Shaw has provided advanced services that help restore and maintain the quality of our nation’s air, water and soil. This award builds on our successful history with GE and this important sediment remediation project undertaken for the benefit of the environment and the community,” said George Bevan, President, Environmental & Infrastructure Group, Shaw.

In 2002 GE committed to working with the US Environmental Protection Agency to remove sediment containing polychlorinated biphenyls from the upper Hudson river. The Hudson river dredging project is considered one of the largest and most logistically complex environmental cleanup efforts in US history. GE estimates 2.4 million cubic yards of sediment will be dredged from a 40-mile stretch of the river throughout the project’s lifespan.
