Fluor-BWXT Portsmouth, a Fluor-led team with a proven legacy of experience completing similar work, won the D&D contract in August 2010 and began phased operations at the site in March 2011. Fluor will lead the cleanup and perform D&D on 315 facilities, including more than 133 buildings on the site.
Fluor has aligned with the client's goal of completing deactivation of the site as quickly as possible, freeing the land for reuse and to benefit the local economy.
Fluor's team is working cooperatively with the client, employees, local labor groups, regulators, advisory boards, community leaders and other stakeholders to achieve a shared vision, garner funding support and complete this project safely, on time and within budget. These efforts are aimed at bringing the Portsmouth Site in Piketon to an end state that satisfies the client and meets the needs of the region.
In addition to performing D&D at the site, Fluor is partnering with community and economic development specialists in the region by investing corporate resources to support job-creating projects and capital investment in the area.
