The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore District, has awarded a $103 million contract to Westinghouse Government Services of South Carolina for the decommissioning, dismantling and disposal of the deactivated SM-1A nuclear power plant at Fort Greely, Alaska.
“The Corps of Engineers has worked diligently to award the contract for this very complex and challenging project,” said Baltimore District Commander Col. Estee Pinchasin. “Our radiological experts have safely executed projects like this in the past, and our team of trained professionals will use proven techniques, precautions and engineering controls to prioritize and ensure the continued safety of our workers, installation community and public."
Crews are expected to begin mobilizing in next year, and the work is anticipated to take approximately six years to complete.
As a reminder, the team has limited abilities to host site visits, so we have prepared a virtual tour of the site to allow everyone to see the site firsthand. The video is available for viewing on YouTube.
We appreciate your continued interest in the SM-1A project. if you have any questions and/or concerns regarding the SM-1A project, please feel free to reach out to us via email.
