The Fluor Federal Services, Inc. Paducah Deactivation Project (FPDP) combines three companies with demonstrated U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) project-management performance, experienced senior leaders, and capabilities necessary to support DOE with the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant (Paducah GDP) Deactivation Project. Our team has 16 cumulative years of site knowledge from both the Paducah and Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plants, including technical expertise that we will draw upon to expedite startup during the initial phase of the project.
Our current work scope focuses on three main tasks: de-leasing the United States Enrichment Corporation’s (USEC) facilities and transferring them from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to DOE, deactivating facilities and preparing the site for additional D&D in the future, and right-sizing the site’s infrastructure to reflect reduced operations and less need for energy.
We are working with DOE to finalize the specific elements of our work scope and will post a summary of our plan as soon as possible. As we move forward to begin work, we will ensure that safety, integrity, teamwork, and excellence are integral to everything we do. We will support and partner with DOE, NRC, the Commonwealth of Kentucky, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), our employees, our subcontractors, and our community to provide safe, reliable, and low-risk project performance.
