Cincinnati – Today, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Environmental Management (EM) awarded the Hanford Integrated Tank Disposition Contract (ITDC) to Hanford Tank Waste Operations & Closure, LLC (H2C) of Lynchburg, Virginia, for work to be performed at the Hanford Site in southeastern Washington state. 

H2C is a newly formed limited liability company made up of BWXT Technical Services Group, Inc., Amentum Environment & Energy, Inc., and Fluor Federal Services, Inc. 

The Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity contract will have a maximum value of $45 billion over a 10-year ordering period. 

The contract includes requirements for meaningful work to be performed by small businesses and will promote robust community commitment and engagement, including support to site reindustrialization by the local community. Submission of a community commitment plan to DOE is also required. 

Work to be performed under the new Hanford ITDC will include, but not be limited to the following:

  • Operation of tank farm facilities, including single-shell tank waste retrieval and closure;
  • Design, construction, and operation of waste receiving facilities and treatment capabilities;
  • Operation of the Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant; and 
  • Core functions such as project management; environment, safety, health, and quality; security and emergency services; and business performance requirements. 

With continued stable funding for the Hanford Site, no site workforce impacts are expected. Competitive and comparable benefits will also continue under the new contract.

For more than 30 years, EM has remained focused on addressing the environmental legacy of nuclear weapons development and nuclear energy research that helped end World War II, win the Cold War and position the United States as a leader in clean nuclear energy. Collectively, EM is delivering results that are protecting the environment, supporting communities, and enabling a concerted focus on safely completing the mission sooner and more efficiently.
