INTERA is a key member of the Hanford Tank Operations and Closure, LLC (H2C) team that was recently awarded the Hanford Integrated Tank Disposition Contract (ITDC). This new contract's focus is on environmental management operations at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Hanford Site in Washington state and has an estimated ceiling of $45 billion over a 10-year ordering period. H2C is a joint venture led by a subsidiary of BWX Technologies, Inc., with partners Fluor Corporation and Amentum Services, Inc. The project’s overall mission is to reduce risk and facilitate the cleanup of high-level radioactive waste generated during the Manhattan Project and Cold War as part of the U.S. nuclear weapons program.   

“Having supported the Hanford environmental cleanup mission for over 15 years, INTERA is an active member of the Richland community.  We are honored to be part of the H2C team, and appreciate the opportunity to continue delivering our expertise and experience to help complete this important mission,” said Marsh Lavenue, INTERA CEO.

“This contract award allows INTERA to make an even bigger investment in the Richland community and help make a difference in the community in which we live,” said Will Nichols, INTERA’s Senior Vice President of Richland Operations.

As a member of the H2C team, INTERA will apply the experience and lessons learned from nearly 50 years of delivering geoscience solutions on radioactive waste isolation and permitting projects around the world.
