The Shaw Group Inc. (NYSE:SGR) announced today that its subsidiary, Shaw Environmental, Inc., was awarded a contract by the U.S. Army Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville to perform conventional and recovered chemical warfare materiel (RCWM) munitions response and other munitions related services. Shaw is one of seven companies selected under this contract which has a first year shared capacity of $525 million. An estimated 75% of the work may be in support of the Army's Iraq operations.

Shaw Environmental, Inc. is the prime contractor in a teaming arrangement that includes American Technologies, Inc. (ATI), a small disadvantaged business, Readiness Management Support LC (RMS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Johnson Controls, The Al-Khudhairy Group of Iraq, and the Armor Group.

The indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract has a five-year ordering period. Task orders will be issued on both a cost reimbursable and fixed-price basis. Tasks could include a wide range of munitions related operations, including site investigations or inspections, remedial investigations, engineering evaluations, remedial or removal actions, long term management, Munitions and Explosives of Concern (MEC), range clearance, demining operations, disablement of unconventional warfare explosive devises, site security, logistical life support and engineering management, and instructional capabilities support, as necessary, to permit the use of lands and waters for their intended purposes. Project locations will include DOD installations and other locations of interest to the government worldwide.

"We have been very successful in managing munitions response operations for our domestic clients. This award is exciting for The Shaw Group because it allows us to export our skills and capabilities to Iraq and other areas outside of the Continental United States," stated Diana Severs Ferguson, President of Shaw Environmental & Infrastructure, Inc. "The Shaw Group continues to broaden its scope internationally on all business lines and we anticipate leveraging our existing global infrastructure when possible."

The Shaw Group Inc. is a leading provider of consulting, engineering, construction, remediation, and facilities management services to government and private sector clients in the environmental, infrastructure, and emergency response markets.
