Bechtel, Westinghouse team on U.S. nuclear decommissioning services

Bechtel Westinghouse Electric Co. decontamination decommissioning nuclear power US plants

Bechtel and Westinghouse Electric Co. are partnering to provide decontamination and decommissioning services for U.S. nuclear power plants.

The alliance will provide a full range of services, including pre-shutdown planning, licensing, project development and management, dismantling, demolition, waste handling, and site closeout – with a central focus on the handling of radioactive materials.

"Customers can trust that Bechtel and Westinghouse will provide integrated services and solutions to safely decommission, decontaminate, and dismantle a power plant, and prepare the site for other uses," said Michael Graham, general manager of Bechtel's global environmental business. "In the United States, the average age of commercial reactors is some 33 years, and many are approaching the end of their licensing periods. Together, these two companies have the resources, experience, and expertise to deliver the safest and cleanest decommissioning projects."
