STONE & WEBSTER TO SUPPORT YANKEE ROWE DECOMMISSIONING

 BOSTON, May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Stone & Webster Engineering Corporation today announced that it will provide construction management services to support the decommissioning of the Yankee Atomic Electric Company Nuclear Power Station in Rowe, Mass. The utility brought the unit on line in 1960, and announced last year that because of economics and regulatory uncertainty, the plant would be permanently shut down.
 Stone & Webster will furnish project management support, materials, equipment, supplies and services to support removal of the plant components, including the steam generators, pressurizer and reactor internals.
 Stone & Webster constructed the 186 megawatt Yankee Rowe plant beginning in March 1958 and completed it in June 1960 on schedule and under budget. The plant generated more than 33 billion kilowatt hours of electricity with a lifetime capacity factor of 74 percent.
 Stone & Webster engineering corporation is an international, multidisciplinary engineering and construction organization specializing in technologically advanced projects in such areas as power generation, refining and petrochemical work, and environmental restoration. The company also undertakes transportation, pulp and paper, and other industrial projects. Boston-based Stone & Webster Engineering Corporation is a subsidiary of Stone & Webster, Incorporated (NYSE: SW) of New York City.
