Duratek, Inc. announced that during the first quarter of 2003 Duratek, Inc. was awarded a number of new nuclear utility on-site liquid waste processing contracts, as well as renewals of several key contracts.
The total contract revenue value is $15.5M over five years.
Water processing services provided under the scope of these contracts all use Duratek proprietary technologies. Duratek, Inc. is a leading liquid waste processing contractor within the nuclear utility industry and processes approximately 70 million gallons of water per year.
A cumulative total of over 850 million gallons, over the past 20 years, has been safely and effectively processed. Duratek's well developed and proven technologies also allow nuclear utilities to achieve world-class reactor water chemistry that improves overall plant reliability and performance.
Robert E. Prince, president and CEO said, "Duratek's technologies allow our customers to achieve significant cost savings by reducing radioactive waste generation, as well as minimize or eliminate any environmental impact. With more than 75 percent of commercial nuclear power plants self-performing this function today, clearly winning additional water processing contracts remains an opportunity for the company's growth in the commercial services segment."
Duratek provides safe, secure radioactive materials disposition to commercial, federal and international customers.
