CH2M HILL PRC is the prime contractor for the safe, environmental cleanup of the Central Plateau at the DOE's Hanford Site. The Hanford Site, part of the DOE environmental management program, covers 585 square miles (half the size of Rhode Island), and is the largest environmental cleanup project in the nation.
The cleanup of the Central Plateau represents the next generation of DOE contract reform and contains key provisions for increased small business subcontract goals. CH2M HILL's delivery philosophy centers on creating a strong team that includes skilled, innovative, and proven subcontractors—large and small. As an integrated subcontractor to the CH2M Hill Plateau Remediation Company (PRC), Fluor is helping the PRC process transuranic waste, decontaminate and demolish facilities, and remediate groundwater.
In partnership with the Building Trades' craft, Fluor also provides craft personnel for CHPRC projects, as well as those for other Hanford contractors. Fluor supported the construction of high throughput ion-exchange systems called pump-and-treat facilities for removing chromium (a carcinogen) from the groundwater.
In working to clean up Hanford yet preserve the site's historical legacy, Fluor decontaminated and relocated massive pieces of railroad equipment. The 10-month $5.5 million project, funded by the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA), was completed on time and under budget.
Fluor has been involved in the environmental cleanup at Hanford since 1996: as a prime contractor, 1996-2009; and a subcontractor, 2009-present.
