TRC to support NYPA in Poletti power plant decommissioning

TRC Companies, Inc. (NYSE:TRR) announced that it has been awarded a $1.2 million contract by the New York Power Authority (NYPA) for engineering services during decommissioning of a generating unit at the Charles Poletti Power Project in Astoria, NY. The Power Authority ceased operations at the more than three-decade-old plant in January 2010. Under a 2002 agreement, The Power Authority committed to construct a state-of-the-art clean-generating unit at the same site in Astoria , which became operational in December 2005.

"TRC is pleased to support NYPA in the decommissioning of the retired Poletti generating unit," said Chris Vincze, TRC's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "This project is an example of services provided under our RE Power™ initiative, designed to service the comprehensive needs of power plant operators."

Under the contract, TRC will provide design, engineering, planning and construction management services, including pre-demolition site investigation; design of construction documents for the future demolition project; recommendations to effectively implement the work; and recommendations of action for existing plant auxiliary buildings that are no longer required.
