EnergySolutions (NYSE: ES) said the partnership it has formed with Environmental Dimensions Inc. has been awarded a $200 million contract for waste characterization, processing and waste operations services for the U.S. Department of Energy's Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) in New Mexico.
The scope of work includes all aspects of radioactive and hazardous waste management including planning, storage, movement, characterization, processing, and packaging at RCRA, radiological, and nuclear facilities.
EnergySolutions and EDI will place particular emphasis on transuranic (TRU) waste retrieval, characterization, processing, and packaging for disposal at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant site in southeastern New Mexico. LANL has signed an agreement with the governor to remove all above ground TRU waste and ship to WIPP by June 2014.
