CH2M HILL-NORTHROP GRUMMAN WINS NEW AMWTP CONTRACT



The team of CH2M Hill-Northrop Grumman has won the new contract to manage
the Advanced Mixed Waste Treatment Project at the Department of Energy's
Idaho site, WC Monitor has learned. A formal announcement is expected later
today. The CH2M-Northrop Grumman team beat out the teams of Bechtel-North
Wind and B&W-URS-EnergySolutions for the new contract, which is expected to
run through Sept. 30, 2015, with performance-based incentives tied to the
amount of waste dispositioned. The AMWTP facility is used to prepare
transuranic waste and other wastes at the Idaho site for off-site disposal.
DOE is also using the facility to process transuranic waste from other
cleanup sites for disposal at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant. For more
information, please see the next issue of WC Monitor.■

CH2M Hill Newport News Nuclear, LLC (CHN) wins Contract


Idaho Falls - The Department of Energy today announced that it has selected CH2M Hill Newport News Nuclear, LLC (CHN) to perform waste processing at the Advanced Mixed Waste Treatment Project at DOE’s Idaho Site near Idaho Falls. The contract is estimated at approximately $592 million, which includes approximately $8 million of work funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. CHN will be responsible for processing and disposing of transuranic waste and mixed low-level waste being stored at the Idaho Site’s Transuranic Storage Area (TSA). The contract will run through September 30, 2015 under a Cost-Plus-Award-Fee contract with performance-based incentives.
“The Department of Energy takes our cleanup commitments to the state of Idaho seriously, and this contract with CHN will allow us to continue our progress with the Advanced Mixed Waste Treatment Project,” said Rick Provencher, Deputy Manager, Idaho Operations Office.
There will be a 30-day transition period, with CHN taking over on or about May 1, 2010.

Has anyone heard who will be in charge of Rad Con at AMWTP after the change over.
I heard the work isn't bad and there is some overtime available. Thinking about applying.
Any input from people out there would be appreciated.

Expect that Marcom, Bartlett and EG&G will still be the RCT subcontractors for AMWTP.

Both sets of competing companies have filed protest to the award of the AMWTP contract to CH2m-NNN. DOE.
I believe has 100 days to resolve the protest.
All turnover to CH2m-NNN has ceased pending resolution.

Anyone hear about the EPRO positions at ATR that closed last month? Other than the guy from San Diego that was scared off,  I haven't heard anyone talk about that job.  I talked to HR and they told me they would probably hire about 10. I let them know that I did prototype there and liked the area, but I guess 15 years out of the nuc world was too long for them to be interested in me.

Papa Tom's makes a GREAT pizza!  Try the Red Baron (Sauerkraut on a pizza?) or (my personal favorite) Pepperoni-Pineapple-Jalapeno.


Note:  I am a "Thin-Crispy-Crust, Spicy-Sauce, Real-Pizza-Oven" fan, so...

Had Papa Tom's for supper.  Their Pepperoni-Pineapple-Jalapeno still makes my top-5 list of best pizzas in the world!  :)

Which parts of the site does 'CWI' control?  (I guess the biggest part of my question is confirming whether they do, or do not, run AMWTP...) 

Thanks!  :)

Idaho Treatment Group (ITG) runs AMWTP.  CWI and ITG are on the same basic site (RWMC).  INL is the king of acronyms.

So the CWI people are digging the waste up, and then ITG is processing it to send to WIPP, right?  That's what I needed to know. Thanks!

This should not...I repeat, NOT...be misconstrued as a recommendation!  But I was so boggled by the concept that I had to share it...

There's a restaurant (Big Jud's) up in Ashton that has a five pound hamburger.  Yep,
FIVE POUNDS!!!

They cook one pound patties and will stack as many as you need on the giant buns.  According to their wall-of-fameshame, a couple of people have finished the three patty version, but I guess they haven't had any takers on the five pounder.

There were four of us and we split a one pound burger and were more than full.

Yeah, I heard there was one in Boise, too.  Apparently the original one is even closer to INL...out in Archer, which is on the backroad between Ririe and Rexburg.  And rumor has it that it was started by a west coast tech's uncle, so...

I looked up their website and thought I'd post some of the 'highlights' of their menu...

My first job was at INEL and I swore I'd never do another Idaho winter again...never got above freezing for three months straight...AND wind blew ALL the time.

Also, the 70 minute bus ride there and back every day got REALLY old.

That being said, the site itself (guess it's INEEL now?) was decent work...at least as far as government work goes.
OOPS! Never say "Never"...  ;)

20 years later I'm driving towards the INL with winter looming... :/

I had heard of companies paying 60 days, but hadn't heard about anything longer term.  Thanks for the update!

We were telling watering hole stories the other day and I could remember Sam's in Atomic City, but couldn't come up with the name of the one in Mud Lake from that era (late '80s).

Also, can anyone remind me of the first names of the two gentlemen in the story about the cowboy hat falling in the pit toilet at the Blackfoot rest area.

Any help appreciated. Thanks.
