Fluor-BWXT President and CEO
As the Department of Energy (DOE) cleanup contractor, Fluor-BWXT is responsible for the decontamination and decommissioning (D&D) of 415 facilities and structures that supported uranium enrichment operations at the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant for more than 70 years.
During D&D, Fluor-BWXT prepares contaminated facilities for demolition by deactivating utilities and removing stored waste, materials, process equipment such as converters and compressors, and piping. These activities will eliminate groundwater contamination sources, improve worker safety and reduce surveillance and maintenance costs.
In the summer of 2015, the Record of Decision (ROD) was finalized by DOE and Ohio EPA to proceed with a comprehensive plan to demolish the process buildings and support structures at PORTS.Learn More
