DOE to Extend Hanford Plateau Remediation Contract for Jacobs; Karen Wiemelt Quoted

Jeff Brody

Jacobs has been notified that the Department of Energy’s Richland Operation Office intends to extend the Plateau Remediation Contract for continued environmental remediation cleanup along the Columbia River and selected portions of the Hanford site, Jacobs announced on Wednesday.

“Jacobs will continue to deliver safe and efficient progress on the Hanford Plateau Remediation Contract during this period of change,” said Karen Wiemelt, senior vice president of Jacobs’ Aerospace, Technology and Nuclear division. “We remain committed to the Department of Energy and the Tri-Cities community in delivering results that are protective of the environment and community at the Hanford site through 2020 and beyond,” she added.

The Plateau Remediation Contract is managed by Jacobs-owned CH2M Hill Plateau Remediation Company and is set to expire at the end of the month. The new extension will run for the next 12 months through Sept. 30, 2020.

The extension will allow work to continue while the acquisition process for follow-on procurements progresses and will be utilized only if needed after award of new contracts and transition periods.
