Bechtel, Parsons JV Wins $599M to Run Chemical Weapon Disarming Facility

A joint venture of Bechtel and Parsons Corp. has won a $599, 321, 231 to build and operate a facility for the U.S. Army to demilitarize chemical weapons, the Defense Department announced Tuesday.

Through July 28, 2023, Bechtel Parsons Blue Grass will run the facility based at Blue Grass Chemical Depot in Kentucky.

The Army received two bids for the cost-plus-incentive-fee contract and the U.S. Army Contracting Command’s office at Rock Island, Ill., is the contracting activity.

In August, the Army announced Booz Allen Hamilton and Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAI) as awardees on a $489 million contract to help the branch manage its chemical weapons stockpiles.

Contractors will compete for task orders to help the Chemical Materials Agency reduce the stockpiles and provide program management services.
