BWXT Joint Venture Awarded $1.39 Bn Environmental Management Contract

BWX Technologies, Inc announced today that its Newport News Nuclear BWXT-Los Alamos (N3B) joint venture with lead partner Stoller Newport News Nuclear (SN3), a subsidiary of Huntington Ingalls Industries Technical Solutions division, was awarded the Los Alamos Legacy Cleanup Contract. The work will be conducted at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL).

The contract is valued at approximately $1.39 billion over 10 years. Following a 90-day transition period, the contract includes a five-year base term and three-year and two-year option periods unilaterally exercisable by DOE.

The DOE’s Office of Environmental Management’s (EM) mission at LANL is to clean up the site safely and to reduce risks to the public, workers and the environment associated with legacy material, facilities and waste sites. The scope of the contract focuses on environmental monitoring and remediation, waste management and disposition, and decontamination and decommissioning at LANL.

“BWXT is very gratified to be selected to perform this very important work by the Department of Energy,” said Rex D. Geveden, BWXT’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our nuclear environmental management credentials are particularly well suited to the complex, multi-year projects we will undertake at Los Alamos with our partner SN3 on behalf of our EM clients.”

BWXT is a partner in joint ventures serving EM at locations such as the Savannah River Site, the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant, the West Valley Demonstration Project, the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant, and the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP). SN3 serves the DOE in multiple locations, the largest as a prime partner in the management and operating contractor for the Savannah River Site
