Tetra Tech, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTEK) announced today that it has been awarded
a contract to complete the feasibility study for a major remediation
project in Port Hope, Ontario, Canada. The remediation effort is a
cornerstone of the "Vision in Motion" project being conducted by Cameco
Corporation, one of the world's largest uranium producers. Following the
satisfactory completion of the feasibility study, Cameco plans to enter
into an engineering-procurement-construction management (EPCM) contract
for the remediation and construction phase. The value of the feasibility
study was not disclosed.
The Vision in Motion program involves the removal of old and
under-utilized buildings, contaminated soil and stored wastes as well as
the construction of new buildings at Cameco's Port Hope Conversion
Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech's Chairman and CEO, said, "We are pleased to
have the opportunity to help Cameco clean up, modernize, and improve the
appearance of the Port Hope Conversion Facility, in accordance with
strict environmental standards and the desires of the local community
and other stakeholders."
Vision in Motion will require transferring approximately 150,000 cubic
metres of material to a government-run long-term waste management
facility. The feasibility study is scheduled to be completed in the fall
of 2012, with EPCM implementation beginning in 2013.
