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.
