A consortium led by Fluor (NYSE: FLR) has won a five-year, $1.4 billion contract to perform nuclear waste cleanup services at an Energy Department-run complex in the high desert of eastern Idaho.
Fluor said Thursday it will help dispose transuranic waste, store used nuclear fuel and manage high-level radioactive materials from the department’s Idaho site that encompasses 890 square miles.
“We look forward to partnering with DOE to accomplish the ICP Core mission and meet the associated regulatory commitments safely, cost effectively and on time, ” said Bruce Stanski, president of Fluor’s government group.
Stanski added Fluor has supported the Idaho site over the past 50 years.
The engineering and construction firm will lead a team comprising CH2M, Waste Control Specialists, North Wind and Portage to carry out the Idaho Cleanup Project.
