DOE Extends Savannah River Site Nuclear Maintenance Contract

Savannah River Site

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) extended the current contract with Fluor Corp. (NYSE: FLR) at the Savannah River Site near Aiken, South Carolina.

DOE extended the management and operating contract for an additional 22 months. The contract is currently being executed by Savannah River Nuclear Solutions LLC. (SRNS), a Fluor-led partnership, together with SN3 Stoller Newport News Nuclear and Honeywell.

“As always, Fluor succeeds in the nuclear space through its continued focus on safety and security by modeling excellence and delivering results across all elements of the SRNS organization,” said Bruce Stanski, president of Fluor’s Government Group. “It is also a validation of our employees’ good work to make the world safer and the assurance that DOE has in our ability to successfully accomplish the project’s mission.”

SRNS was first awarded the maintenance and operating contract in January 2008 after an open and competitive bidding process. The Savannah River Site supports and maintains the nuclear weapons stockpile as well as processing and storing nuclear materials in support of U.S. nuclear non-proliferation efforts.
