Cleanup of the expended materials from years of uranium enrichment activities at the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant site is of great importance to the state, local community and all regulatory agencies of jurisdiction. One of PACRO’s missions is ensuring that proper cleanup ensues at the site in a timely manner.
Selection of a Contractor
After months of correspondence with federal, state and local leaders urging the selection of a contractor to transition and prepare the PGDP site for Deactivation and Decommission (D&D) of the former uranium enrichment materials, U.S. Department of Energy officials selected Fluor Federal Services for the work. The task order, awarded in July, is anticipated to support transitioning and preparing the site for D&D activities. The order provides extensive and detailed hiring preferences for the available, highly skilled labor force.
In the fall of 2014, Fluor began taking on employees to carry out the contract services. Roughly 1100 workers have been hired to date and Fluor officials plan to continue adding to the workforce.

The task order will contain both firm fixed-price and cost reimbursable elements including award fee components. The estimated award value is approximately $420 million over three years.
Services to be provided under the task order include, but are not limited, to:
Project Management (including Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant de-lease planning and facility transfer)
Facility Modification and Infrastructure Optimization (including stabilization and deactivation of PGDP facilities)
Decontamination and Demolition, and Environmental Services
