Savannah River Remediation awarded contract extension



The U.S. Energy Depart­ment extended the contract for the consortium managing highly-radioactive liquid waste at Savannah River Site, the department announced Wednesday.

Savannah River Reme­diation received a two-year extension for the contract awarded in 2009, according to a news release. The contract extension, worth $797 million, begins July 1 and runs through June 30, 2017.

An extension option was part of the original $3.3 billion, six-year contract for nuclear cleanup at SRS. Savannah River Remediation manages closure of underground storage tanks, operations at the Defense Waste Processing Facility and the Saltstone Facility.

“Savannah River Reme­diation LLC continues to successfully meet or exceed the terms of its contract,” said David Moody, DOE-Savannah River manager.

Savannah River Reme­diation is led by URS Corp. in partnership with Bechtel National, CH2M Hill and Babcock & Wilcox. The contractor received 95 percent, or $26.8 million, of the available award fee for its fiscal 2014 performance review.
