Focusing on DOE’s Hanford site
The Central Plateau Cleanup Company (CPCCo) is an Amentum-led team with experience in safe, environmental cleanup of select portions of the Hanford Site, a large U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) nuclear site near Richland, Wash. CPCCo manages site operations that provide facility deactivation, decommissioning, decontamination and demolition, waste-site remediation, transuranic waste management, and development of decision documents to support regulatory requirements and oversight.
Recall that the Hanford Site is where plutonium for nuclear weapons was produced during World War II and the Cold War. Hanford’s Central Plateau contains former fuel-processing facilities that once refined plutonium fuel into its final product and associated waste disposal areas.
CPCCo was awarded an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract that addresses DOE priorities, as CPCCo seeks to deliver headline-worthy progress, reduce site risk, shrink lifecycle costs, and accelerate schedule. With nearly 180 years of combined nuclear experience – including 60+ years at Hanford – our CPCCo partnership has decommissioned close to 1,200 facilities and dispositioned more waste than any other U.S. company.
- Successfully completed stabilization of three underground liquid waste disposal structures on Hanford’s Central Plateau
- Resumed major risk-reduction projects, including work at the Plutonium Finishing Plant and Hanford’s 324 Building
- Collaborated with DOE on IDIQ/Task Order development and launched joint partnerships
