NASA awards contract for reactor cleanup

NASA has recently awarded a contract to Clauss Construction of Lakeside, California to carry out and complete the decontamination and preparation for a final status survey of NASA’s Plum Brook Reactor Facility located in Sandusky, Ohio. The facility is managed by NASA’s Glenn Research Center in Cleveland.

The contractor will perform decontamination and radiation protection activities. This will include the safe packaging, shipment and disposal of all on-site low-level radioactive waste and contaminated soil existing at the time of contract award and that generated by the facility during the contract performance period.

This cost-plus-fixed-fee contract is valued at more than $33.5 million. The period of performance is 30 months.
