A joint venture of Huntington Ingalls Industries’ (NYSE: HII) SN3 subsidiary and BWX Technologies’ (NYSE: BWXT) technical services group has received a notice to proceed from the Energy Department to begin transition work on the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico.
HII said Wednesday the Newport News Nuclear BWXT-Los Alamos JV started Wednesday the 90-day transition period under a potential 10-year, $1.39 billion contract to clean up contaminants at the national lab’s 36-square mile site.
The contract awarded in December 2017 by DOE’s National Nuclear Security Administration has a five-year base term, a three-year option period and another two option years.
N3B will work with subcontractors Longenecker & Associates and Tech2 Solutions to respectively provide quality assurance and water program management services for the project.
SN3 is part of HII’s technical solutions division that was established in December 2016 after HII completed its purchase of Huntsville, Alabama-based government services contractor Camber Corp.
