Amentum To Lead $10 Billion Hanford Contract

Service-oriented Amentum, based in Germantown, Maryland, announced Monday that it had been chosen as the lead contractor to work with Fluor and Atckins, in a joint venture called the Central Plateau Cleanup Company (CPCC), to proceed, beginning October 5, to transition on the $10 billion Central Plateau Cleanup contract at the Hanford legacy site near Richland, Washington.

Hanford SiteThe contract is a master indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract that is expected to run for 10 years, including a transition period of at least 60 days, Amentum said.

The three partners, CPCC noted, will rely on the “depth and breadth of three leading nuclear industry companies – Amentum, Fluor and Atkins.” This allows for the size of the contract as it involved “one of the largest and most experienced nuclear End State delivery teams assembled in the U.S. Department of Energy complex.”

With more than 100 years of combined nuclear experience, including 63 years at Hanford, these companies have collectively decommissioned 1,179 facilities and dispositioned more waste for the U.S. cleanup program than any other company.

”Our goal is to be the safest, best-performing, most-respected cleanup contractor in the Department of Energy complex,” said Scott Sax, President and Project Manager of the Central Plateau Cleanup Company. “Our team is ready to join hands with other site contractors in a One Hanford approach, and we are committed to getting the job done.”
