BECHTEL SECURES $260 MILLION NAVY CLEAN CONTRACT

 SAN FRANCISCO, April 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Bechtel said today it has been awarded a contract by the Department of the Navy's Southwest Division, Naval Facilities Engineering Command, to help carry out a $260 million program that involves study and design leading to the cleanup and removal of hazardous and toxic wastes at more than 50 Navy and Marine Corps installations in Southern California, Arizona and New Mexico.
 Bechtel National Inc. (BNI) will provide architectural and engineering services to the Navy for its Comprehensive Long-Term Environmental Action Navy (CLEAN) Program. The majority of work involved in the 10-year effort will take place in the Long Beach and San Diego areas of Southern California. Installations will include Naval bases, supply depots, test ranges, shipyards, air and weapons stations, and Marine Corps facilities.
 "Basically, we will be carrying out remedial investigations at multiple installations and handling a variety of feasibility studies and remedial designs," said BNI president Clint Johnstone.
 "Bechtel's proven management systems, developed on major nationwide site cleanup programs for federal agencies including DOD, DOE and EPA, will be applied to this complex multi-task, multi-site program. Our management and technical team is eager to apply its skills in support of mobilization and execution of this challenging assignment."
 Johnstone said Bechtel's scope of work for the Navy will include a variety of investigations, studies and designs that fall under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), as well as the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). As such, Bechtel will provide site assessment and investigations, treatability studies, risk assessment, remedial design and construction management support services.
 Bechtel's assignment also will include asbestos abatement studies; work relating to the Underground Storage Tank (UST) program; and related technical environmental services in the areas of air, water, waste water, hazardous materials and solid waste. In addition, he said, Bechtel will provide the Navy with regulatory compliance support services that cover a variety of federal, state and local environmental laws and regulations.
 Bechtel will be supported by a number of specialty subcontractors including analytical laboratories; drilling subcontractors; and small, small-disadvantaged and women-owned suppliers and subcontractors.
 Jim Moe, Bechtel's program manager, said his team is ready to begin work immediately. He added that Bechtel will establish a program management office in San Diego shortly.
 Bechtel has more than 30 years of environmental engineering and construction experience in support of a number of business sectors, including advanced systems, defense and space, petroleum, chemical, mining and metals, power and infrastructure. For the past two years, the company has been ranked as the no. 1 hazardous waste contractor among U.S. engineering/construction firms by Environmental Business Journal.
