MONTREAL – SNC-Lavalin has been contracted to provide deactivation, decommissioning and removal (DD&R) of nuclear facilities, as well as waste management and program support from the US Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Environmental Management (EM), through its Atkins Nuclear Secured Holdings Corporation entity.
This multiple award contract has a 10-year ordering period, and a ceiling of US$3 billion, split between nine companies. This contract is within SNCL Engineering Services.
“We are pleased to be included in this list of awardees to provide deactivation, decommissioning and removal of nuclear facilities to the US DOE to reduce environmental risks,” said Sandy Taylor, president, nuclear, SNC-Lavalin.
“Waste management and decommissioning is a significant and growing part of SNC-Lavalin’s nuclear business, and this contract solidifies our position in this important market.”
SNC-Lavalin previously held a DOE-EM prime contract that preceded this nationwide DD&R contract.
“For more than 25 years we have solved some of the toughest cleanup and decommissioning challenges for the Department of Energy. We are excited to continue our support for the Office of Environmental Management on this new installment of their national IDIQ cleanup contract,” added Tom Jouvanis, president, Atkins Nuclear Secured.
The DOE will issue orders to conduct DD&R of excess, legacy facilities across the Environmental Management complex. The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), Office of Naval Reactors (NR) and the Office of Science (SC), as well as other DOE Offices or other Federal Agencies may also request EM assistance in accomplishing their DD&R requirements.
