Perma-Fix subsidiary wins LLRW treatment and disposal contract.
Perma-Fix Environmental Services, Inc. has been awarded a one year, $4.1 million contract from Energy Northwest, a leading power supplier to the Pacific Northwest, to treat and discard low-level radioactive wastes. Energy Northwest's Columbia Generating Station awarded the contract to Perma-Fix's wholly owned subsidiary, Perma-Fix Northwest, located in Richland, Washington.
Energy Northwest is a joint operating agency comprised of 28 public utilities that serve ratepayers throughout Washington. The company owns and operates four electricity generating projects, including the Columbia Generating Station near Richland.
Energy Northwest solicited contractors who could manage about 3 million pounds of condenser tubes, piping, structural steel and other related radioactively contaminated wastes.
Perma-Fix provides radioactive waste management solutions for generators ranging from nuclear utilities to government agencies. The Perma-Fix Northwest facility has operated in Richland since 1993. Perma-Fix purchased the facility in 2007 and upgraded it.
